I am the worst pregnant person! I haven’t taken one bump picture yet and we’re twelve weeks in. I meant to take one this weekend, but I was too preoccupied to remember. Sam and I went to Northern Virginia for a triple birthday barbecue for my sisters and me (our birthdays are all a week apart – July 20th, July 28th (me!) and August 4th). We finished the weekend by attending the amazing Outcry Tour which featured Hillsong United, Jesus Culture and Kari Jobe. I really wish I had stopped to take a picture though because, sometime in the last week, my “baby bloat” turned into a definite baby bump. I promise to take a picture to share next week!
How far along are you? 12 weeks and 3 days.
How big is baby? The size of a plum. Baby E is 2.5 inches and .5 oz.
Total weight gain? Not sure. I haven’t weighed myself since my last midwife appointment.
How are you feeling? My mornings are still terrible. I have to vomit as soon as I open my eyes each morning. I still feel nauseous after my first few meals of the day, but my evenings are slowly getting back to normal. I’m still dealing with lots of indigestion, but the headaches have almost disappeared. Almost. The important thing is that, although my symptoms aren’t really getting better, I’m learning to cope better which is great.
What are you wearing a lot of lately? Dresses, leggings, flowy tank tops and maternity jean shorts from Target. And when all else fails, I put on workout clothes.
How’s your sleep? Getting better everyday! I’ve given up on naps because they seem to start my morning sickness all over again. That means that by bedtime I am so delirious that I fall right asleep. I even fell asleep while Sam was praying for me last night – I felt so bad! I’m also waking up less frequently in the middle of the night. So sleep is good right now.
Food cravings? Ice cream (still) and fruit; cherries, granny smith apples, and plums mostly.
Food aversions? I still can’t eat fish and I’m not a huge fan of eggs right now either. So basically anything that has a strong odor.
Best moment this week? Having family members notice my little baby bump. Since I look at myself everyday, it’s hard to notice a difference sometimes.
What are you looking forward to? I still have 8 weeks to go, but I am dying to find out what we’re having. We already have names picked out for each so now we just need to find out which one of our future children will be joining us first!
