Week 12 Pregnancy Photo
How far along am I?
How big is the baby?
The size of a plum.
How much weight have I gained?
About two pounds.
How am I sleeping?
I’m sleeping about the same. I still go to sleep pretty early and now I’m even falling asleep during my favorite shows! I just get soooo sleepy at times.
My best moment this week
The best moment this week would have to be hearing Baby Chamber’s heartbeat for the first time! It was pretty amazing and definitely makes me want to go pick up my own personal doppler so I can hear Baby Chambers every now and then. The heartbeat was definitely like music to our ears. We didn’t get to see an ultrasound since we were able to hear the heartbeat with the handheld doppler. We really did want to see how much the baby has grown, but oh well. Hearing he heartbeat was enough.
The appointment went great! My midwife just asked me how I was feeling and my symptoms and whatnot. Everything was expected so no worries. My bloodwork came back fine and baby’s heartbeat is good and strong. The heart rate is still in the 160’s. Since the heart rate is high, the receptionist is guessing it’s a girl, but I’ve read you can’t always go by that so we will see. I have my next appointment in 4 weeks (I’ll be a day shy of 17 weeks) where we will basically do the same thing and then the appointment after that is the anatomy scan. I’m guessing that appointment will be sometime in January, but we will know the gender before then because we are going to an ultrasound place soon to find out!
Do I miss anything?
I miss not being able to stay awake long enough to watch my shows! LOL.
Lunchables! Pizza Lunchables to be exact. No worries, I heat up the Lunchable a bit in the microwave before devouring it!
What am I eating?
I’m eating cereal, grits, waffles, omlettes, biscuits, lunchables, fruit, bacon, veggies, chicken, steak, mac and cheese, oven heated subs, sour candy, and pizza.
How do I feel?
Tired, tired, and more tired! Maybe I’ll get some energy in the second trimester hopefully!
Have I started to show yet:
I have a little bump now 🙂
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
I’m happy and I seem to get a little more emotional these days.
What am I looking forward to?
I am looking forward to finding out the gender of the baby! We find out in two weeks at a 3d/4d ultrasound place called Sweet Pea 4D and I can’t wait! I hope baby cooperates.
