12 Weeks today!

Baby M at 11 weeks, 3 days

Baby M's adorable little hands!
I had to start off with pictures of my little plum :) Well today I am officially 12 weeks! The baby is now the size of a peach and is moving all around. 
How far along: 12 weeks, 0 days
Total weight gain: About 7-8 lbs :( I blame the intense hunger that came with weeks 6-11!
Maternity Clothes: Caved and bought a pair of maternity jeans.  Best decision ever.  Even though it's bloating at this point, it hurt having a button dig into my uterus when I sat down.
Stretch Marks: Not yet
Sleep:  Am able to stay up a little later now, but I am still waking up a few times a night.  I've also noticed that I'm having a hard time getting comfortable because my lower back is hurting.
Best moment this week:  Getting to see my sweet baby again.  We had the NT testing done and I loved seeing the tiny legs and hands.
Movement: Still too early, but I'm so ready to feel flutters!
Food cravings:  fruit smoothies!
Anything making you queasy: Getting hot, still get queasy after dinner.
Have you started to show yet:  I think I'm starting to have a little bit of a bump down low, but at this point it's still bloating!
Gender prediction:  Been dreaming about boys and girls, so who knows!
Labor signs:  Too soon!
Belly Button:  In!
Wedding Rings:  On!
Happy or Moody:  Still moody!
Weekly Wisdom:  Don't fight maternity clothes! The stretchy waistband pants are SO much more comfortable than having a button and zipper digging into your stomach.  Especially when your stomach ends up so much more bloated by the end of the day.
Milestones: Only 1 week left in the first trimester!
Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender in 21 days :) I'm so ready to start saying "he" or "she" when I talk about the baby AND we can pick a name.  We decided not to think hard about it until we knew the gender.

10 Weeks

Thought it might be fun to document my pregnancy periodically. Here's a snapshot of where I am currently:

How far along? 10 weeks, 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: About 4 lbs already, but it keeps fluctuating.

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but I had to pull out my "fat pants" that are baggy in the legs lol

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep:  I am so exhausted that I've been going to sleep before 9pm some nights.  However, I typically wake up 2-3 times to go to the bathroom! 

Best moment this week: Seeing my sweet baby moving around on the 10 week ultrasound! He/she was measuring 11 weeks though. 

Have you told family and friends: Yes, we have already publicly announced. 

Movement: Too early to feel, but there was lots of movement on the ultrasound! 

Food cravings: Mexican, Mexican, Mexican! Taco Bell & Taco Bueno in particular :) 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Getting hot (standing next to a pot of water boiling), an empty stomach, loading the dishwasher with dirty dishes...

Have you started to show yet: Got a pooch, but think it's all bloat at this point.

Gender prediction: David and I both feel like it's a boy.

Labor Signs: Wayy too early for that!

Belly Button in or out? In 

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody

Weekly Wisdom: Buy a Fetal Doppler! I bought the Sonoline B Fetal Doppler and absolutely LOVE it! I found the baby's heartbeat the first night I received it and I was 9 weeks, 0 days.  Takes a little while to find it when the baby is that small, but it's so amazing to hear that your little one's heart is still beating away in there!

Milestones: So close to the 2nd trimester!
