Twelve Weeks


How far along? Twelve weeks and six days. Second trimester starts tomorrow! I am thrilled about that. Hoping to feel more normal and like myself again. 

Baby's size? The baby is the size of a ripe apricot this week. 

Baby's nickname? We have been referring to the baby as "baby". 

Maternity clothes? Not yet. 

Exercise? I worked out with my trainer on Monday. Still not getting as much exercise in as I'd like. I'm anticipating lots of energy in the second trimester. 

Sleep: Still lots and lots of sleep. I actually went to sleep at 11 last night {up late waiting on the election results}. That was the latest I've stayed up in a LONG time. 

Best moment this week: Watching the election results come in with my husband and parents. I will never forget those emotions running high.

Miss anything? I miss not having headaches. 

Movement: None yet. 

Food cravings: Bagels and chocolate chip muffins. Mostly bagels. I made my husband go to Bruegger's twice on Sunday. I wanted a plain bagel with cream cheese for breakfast and lunch. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: My nausea came back on Friday night with a vengeance. We went to one of our favorite Mexican restaurants and I could barely eat anything. I took two bites of my cheese enchiladas {one of my favorite foods} and my husband ate the rest for breakfast the next morning. Luckily it hasn't been that bad since that night. 

Gender: We will know soon!

Symptoms: Terrible headaches. Saturday was the worst. I had a migraine all day that I could not get rid of. I spent all day Sunday recovering. So far the only thing that has really helped is running Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender in my oil diffuser and sitting or laying right next to it. 

Wedding rings on or off? On. 

Happy or moody most of the time: I'm not going to lie, I was pretty cranky for the majority of the week. I cried for absolutely no reason one day. The headaches really did take a toll on me. Lately I've just felt like something has taken over my body. 

Looking forward to: I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. Hopefully I get to see the baby! 


Here's my baby bump. Making it's debut at twelve weeks and six days.
