12 Weeks-Pregnancy Highlights!

How Far Along: 12 weeks

Size of baby: Baby #3 is 6cm (about 2.4 inches)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: None so far! Same as my first appointment at 7 weeks.

Maternity Clothes: Not Yet.. but I've broken out the Belly Band. I'm sure maternity pants will be arriving soon! ;) The belly just started popping out in the last week!

Gender: Not sure yet! My first two appointments the baby's heart rate was VERY high (in the 170's) which lead me to think GIRL for sure, BUT today it was 153....so I stumped now! Macie's was ALWAYS high and Caleb's was always low! Hmmmmmm........

Movement: None yet, but it sure was wiggling all around in the ultrasound :)

Food Cravings: I've have felt SO sick that the thought of food wasn't really been on the top of my list for the last couple of months, BUT lately I have been craving chips and dip, meats (hamburgers, chicken, chicken salad), fruits (plums and grapes), cereal....but I have NO desire to eat sweets...YUCK! And this makes the "baker" inside of me sad :(

What I miss: Being able to run and workout like I was prior to pregnancy.

Sleep: Depends on the night. I usually can fall asleep easy, but if I wake up, I have a really hard time going back to sleep. And I wake up SUPER early....which is NOT like me :)

Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting, EXTREME exhaustion/fatigue, lots of trips to the potty, TERRIBLE indigestion, MISERABLE headaches....... (this has been the hardest of all 3 pregnancies so far!!)

Best Moment this week: Feeling like I *might* be getting some of my energy back and a little less nausea. AND getting to see our sweet little baby wiggling all around on the ultrasound :)

What I am looking forward to: Feeling "human" again! Ha! And having enough energy to clean my house and cook again! It's SO hard for me to feel so unmotivated!!
