12 Weeks!


Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, Ten is the size of a lime! (Which is kinda funny because I've been wanting to make recipes that use limes...) The big addition for this week is reflexes! Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it.

- Nausea is still hanging around but is getting better. We've had a crazy week already which resulted in some late nights. If I'm up past 10 p.m., I start feeling really, really sick. Here's hoping the rest of our week calms down so I can get into bed on time to fix this problem!
- My tiredness seems to have hit an all time high this week, which is slightly confusing as I'm nearing the end of the first trimester. It really is due mostly to our schedule I'm sure, but man it's been rough. Lots of trips down the hallway at my office just so I can get up to wake up!
-Breakouts. Nothing to major so far, but I'm noticing more blemishes starting to pop up on my face. I know it's not the end of the world, but it just makes you feel kinda blah. Coupled with the fact that my makeup seems to be wearing off easier these days, I'm looking a little rough by 5:00!

Cravings/Aversions: Still savory/salty! {Meaning, mostly Mexican food!} I have started working in more veggies as afternoon snacks, so I am at least proud of this addition. My hunger seems to be a little more under control and I'm actually starting to want to eat more veggies now {partially a craving and partially from guilt!} so I'm hoping this sticks with me for a while!

Maternity Clothes: Still feeling very pudgy. I told Cody that I'm going to have to start picking out my clothes the night before, because it's getting harder and harder to find clothes that fit that go together. Part of it is also my vanity. Stuff still fits, just not like it used to and that's not the best ego boost to my mornings. Thankfully I still have some loose dresser that should work for a while, sorry if you get tired of seeing me wear them!

Sleep: Sleeping great, just really wishing for more of it. Still taking lots of trips to the bathroom, but at least I can fall right back to sleep!

Highlights Of This Week:
-This past week I introduced Ten to one of my favorite places: the San Marcos outlets :) I ended up only buying stuff for Cody, but I will be back once we know what we're having, so there is way more damage to be done!
-Realizing that 12 weeks is 3 months, only leaving 6 to go. Along those lines, telling someone I was due September 2 and hearing them say "That's so soon!" In my mind I still feel like we have 9 months ahead of us, but it's not quite so!
-Cody and I stepping out in faith, following the Lord and waiting for an answer. So many changes ahead of us that can be very scary, but also knowing that Someone is already in front of us paving the way.

Funniest Dream Of This Week:
- I dreamed that we found out we were having a boy at our next sonogram. The funny part was that we (Cody, Nurse and I) all saw the distinguishing factor (let's just say he was rather well endowed, ha!) and Cody started doing some major celebrating. I on the other hand, was adamantly saying, "No, no, it can't be!! I'm only 12 weeks, there's no way we can tell this early! It could still be a girl!" Let's hope this one doesn't come true tomorrow!

Looking forward to:
- Our sonogram tomorrow! We'll see the Maberry (the high risk OB) to check on the fibroid and to see Ten. Really hoping that we'll get some good news and hear that the fibroid has shrunk.
- The weekend! Sleeping in is at the top of my agenda, but it sounds like we're supposed to have some nice weather to enjoy!
