12 Weeks | Our Little Plum | Baby T #2

12 weeks

How far along: 12 weeks
How big is baby? Plum
Symptoms: Another rough week...nausea and exhaustion continue. Not specifically from pregnancy but I was having costochondritis chest pain almost all week - making it hard to move & sleep. Luckily by the end of the week it had resolved. Also, still taking it easy after hurting my pelvis running at OTF last week (need to take it slower)
Maternity clothes: Yes - although still wearing regular tops (and maternity tops)
Sleep: Pretty tired again this week. Early bedtimes & weekend naps are a must! [same]
Miss anything: Having more energy to workout
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Still takis - I really hope this morphs into something healthy soon! haha
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Happy
Feeling boy or girl? Girl
Looking forward to: A relaxing weekend! Date night with friends on Friday and then NO PLANS! Woohoo! Maybe work on cleaning out the nursery closet.
Best moment of this week: When trying to find the baby’s heartbeat on the doppler, Eli either wants to do it on me (where he basically just puts the jelly into my belly button with the wand...ew!) or do it on himself. It’s so dang cute to watch him! Wasn’t able to find the heartbeat yet but excited when E can finally hear it! Also...we had an ultrasound at 12w1d & the baby was measuring 12w4d. The heartbeat was 165 BPM. Baby was moving SO DANG MUCH! I think we might have another busy body aka Eli on our hands...uh oh! Love seeing that little peanut on the screen!!

Maternity clothes: Yes - living in cotton shorts & tank tops

Miss anything: We had wine tasting at our house this weekend & if I wasn’t constantly feeling nauseous I probably would’ve missed the wine.

Food cravings: Takis...almost exclusively Takis haha, Pickles, sour candy...you know, really healthy things! Or like a salad at 9 am
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular

Looking forward to: Going to Nanny & Pops house this weekend! Eli is going to have a blast! Kitties, puppies, cows, the buggy...what more could he ask for?!
Best moment of this week: Had lots of fun pool time with Eli this week. Peer pressure has resulted in him wearing his floaties in the pool (YAY!) & wine tasting with our neighborhood friends!
