How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: Total of 7 pounds lost. Didn’t loose any weight this week which is fine. I expected it to stop at some point. Still trying to stay active by walking 30 minutes and lifting some free weights. I should get back to the gym since I am paying for a membership:)
Maternity clothes: I have accepted that maternity clothes are inevitable. They are starting to become something that I enjoy wearing because they are so comfortable.
Sleep: Getting more and more energy back. Still sleepy at times but it seems like its getting less.
Best moment this week: Since we made it to 12 weeks we decided that it was time to announce our pregnancy to Facebook. Rick and I had a hard time deciding on how to announce it. I wanted to blow balloons up with one balloon saying ‘Expected to POP’ and the other saying ‘October 2016’. We attempted this but it looked to amateurish to us. Rick wanted us to be sitting at our kitchen table with a pizza, chips and water in front of me and beer wine in front of Rick. Above me in the picture it would say ‘Eating for two’ and above Rick it would say ‘Drinking for two’. It just didn’t work out. So we decided on this which I
LOVE how it turned out.
Miss anything? We went out to eat with some friends for dinner and drinks. For me minus the drinks…I have discovered moc-tails, which will have to do the trick;)
Movement: Nothing yet.
Food cravings: This week was cheetos, again and root beer! Its kinda like beer, haha.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope felt great all week.
Gender: unknown, but I think its a boy…Ramzi method.
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: I have determined that I am showing a little bump, so exciting!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time, but Rick does like to push my buttons. I feel like I am more sensitive to it so I need to remember that. I love him still for putting up with me <3.
Looking forward to: Moving on to my second trimester and watching the baby grow. We are also getting a nuchal translucency ultrasound on Tuesday March 22nd 2016 to measure the thickness behind the babies neck. It is a precursor to downs syndrome. We are also thinking of doing a blood test called the harmony test. It is a very accurate test for most genetic issues.
Added a sign for cuteness! Can’t wait to see the belly grow!
