Baby Update: Week 12
How Far Along: 12 weeks
How Big is Baby: peach or lime, depending on which site you look at
Maternity Clothes: I broke down and bought some maternity tee's and tanks because my normal ones were not feeling long enough anymore. lol But I'm still able to wear my yoga pants, so we are all good there. ;)
Sleep: I've been able to fall asleep pretty well, but staying asleep is a different story.
Food Cravings: no real cravings lately
Food Aversions: still the same as before
Symptoms: still experiencing awful morning sickness 24 hours a day, still have extremely sore breasts, peeing constantly, lately I've been extremely emotional
Movement: I started feeling baby fluttering around in there last week (11w2d). Everything I've read says that things happen sooner with second (and later) pregnancies because our bodies remember what they are supposed to be doing. I was sitting on the couch im'ing with my bff at 11pm and all the sudden felt the fluttering low in my belly. At first I was like, what the hell?! So I told her that I just felt fluttering and she said that makes sense since things happen sooner than they did the first time around. I did some reading up online and it seems to be true. Crazy! It makes everything way more real though, feeling that fluttering inside.
Gender: still don't know, hoping to find out at our appt on Monday, otherwise we probably won't find out until the following appt
What I'm Looking Forward to: feeling better!
What I Miss: sleeping on my tummy
Next Appt: Monday the 22nd of July
We have picked our gender reveal cake design and I'm so excited about getting together with my family for the reveal. My bff is going to do the cake for us and then we will head to my little brother's fire station and meet up with my parents, brother and sil and their kids to do the reveal. I am hoping that we can find out the gender on Monday, I'll be almost 13 weeks. If we can't then I guess we wait another month til the next appointment and hopefully find out then! We have bought a crib and infant car seat so far, and obviously both are gender neutral and I am dying to buy clothes and blankets and all the fun stuff but I am restraining myself until we know if little flutter is a boy or girl. ;)
