Today's date: December 17, 2011
How far along: 12 weeks
Total weight gain: None. I'm actually about 6-7lbs under where I was when I got pregnant with Jude. Although I look like I'm about a month further along.
Size and growth of the baby: From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a plumb) and weighs half an ounce. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be.
Sex: Too soon.
Maternity clothes: I'm refusing maternity clothes. Funny how different it is from the first time around. I couldn't get into those stretchy pants soon enough the first time. Now I am cherishing my skinny jeans because I know how sick I'm going to get of them in about 6 months. But I may or may not be leaving my pants unbuttoned these days.
Sleep: I suck at sleep when I'm pregnant. Thank goodness Jude has been an amazing sleeper lately.
Best moment(s) of the week: My appetite has returned!! It is amazing to eat like a normal person!!
Movement: Too soon to feel, though it's happening. :)
Food cravings/aversions: None today!! Yippee!!
Morning sickness: Here and there. I feel great today, so I REALLY hope this means we're over it.
Symptoms: Exhaustion, a bit of cramping, bloating, headaches.
Labor signs: Way too soon.
Belly button in or out: In.
What I miss: My energy. It's different with an almost-9-month-old using you as a human jungle-gym. Oh, to have my energy back. I can't wait for 2nd tri.
What I'm looking forward to: Another Dr. appt on Thursday and 2nd trimester on Saturday! Oh, and Christmas on Sunday. And Jude's 9 month birthday on the following Wednesday. Holy moly where has time gone??
See how things were going when I was 12 weeks pregnant with Jude.
