12 Weeks (5/11/12)

How far along? 12 weeks (12 weeks, 2 days in this pic)

Size of baby: 2.5 in and weighs 1/3-1/2 ounce. About the size of a lime

Weight gain: Not a clue. I need to buy a scale so I can weigh myself other then at my doctors appointments

Maternity clothes: Not yet but clothes are getting snug. I am wearing a bellaband for the first time in this picture.

Stretch marks: Nope. My stomach has been itchy so I think it’s growing. Been applying cocoa butter lotion like crazy.

Sleep: Good other then waking to go to the bathroom every few hours. I'm not as tired as I used to be during the day either.

Symptoms: Feeling awesome!

Best moment this week: My friends seeing me pregnant for the first time today and all the mothers day wishes I have received

Movement: Not yet but I can’t wait

Food cravings: Still candy. Starbursts, any kind of sour candy, sugar, sugar, sugar. We went to a carnival Friday and I might have gotten a funnel cake AND cotton candy. Don't worry, I didn't eat them at the same time. 

Gender: June 29! I feel like it's a girl from the heart rate but I keep dreaming it's a boy so I'm clueless. Taking a gender predictor test tomorrow that's 90% accurate. The suspense is killing me.

What I miss: Absolutely nothing. Waited my whole life to be pregnant so I am loving every minute right now. Check back in a couple months and this is sure to change

Milestones: Almost done with first trimester!

My sweet friend got me these for Mother's day. Love the colors and their so soft. Thanks Melanie!!


  1. When I was pregnant with both girls, I KNEW I was having girls but I always dreamt they were boys. Opposite with Jack, I knew he was a boy but kept dreaming he was a girl! LOL

  2. That was so sweet of Melanie, those are too cute!! I can't wait to find out the gender....for once I can honestly say I'd be happy with either!! It will be spoiled no matter what :0)

  3. i dreamed of a girl too both times and it was a boy! get ya some tummy butter or some other thick lotion to put on RELIGIOUSLY. trust me!!

  4. CAN'T WAIT to find out the gender - I hope it's a girl so I can spoil her as much as you spoiled Madi (so much easier with girls than boys!!!) . . .either way, can't wait to meet this little bundle!
