12 Weeks

How far along? 12 weeks
Size: Lime!
Maternity clothes? I bought two pairs of maternity pants for work, but haven't purchased anything else. All of my regular pants still fit (some I use a hair tie for comfort) so that's good. Okay, maternity pants are so's like wearing yoga pants, but I look professional. I may never want to go back to normal skinny jeans.
Nothing besides being tired
Sleep: Still awesome thanks to my Snoogle. I don't think you have to be pregnant to enjoy that pillow :)

Best moment this week:
Sending out announcements to friends and family

Worst moment of the week: Not being able to kick this cold I've had for a week and a half. Also, finishing Sons of Anarchy. Robert and I aren't sure what to do with our lives anymore.
Have you told family and friends: Yes. Work still doesn't know yet.

Miss anything? Not sneezing and blowing my nose every five minutes.

Movement: Nope

Food cravings: No, but I am still eating chocolate chips after dinner. I've created a bad habit, oops.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still spinach salad. I've taken a spinach salad to work everyday this week and its come right back home with me. 

Have you started to show yet: Yes, but it changes daily - last Sunday I woke up and it had vanished. By Monday we were back in business.

Lime baby
My Gender prediction:  Boy! I am going to laugh if the doctor says it's a girl. We call it a he all the time (better than calling him "it")
Labor signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: NT scan next week. Any chance to see the baby is something to look forward too!

Baby A, size of a lime!
What's the baby up to?
Baby now has a chin and a nose and a facial profile. Vocal chords are complete, and the baby can and does sometimes cry silently (how sad!). The brain is fully formed, and the baby can also feel pain. The fetus may even suck his thumb (aww).
The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve fibers. The hair is on the head and the fingers and toes have developed soft nails. The kidneys are developed and begin to secrete urine.


  1. Awww, 12 weeks! Yahoo! So happy to get your sweet announcement. And I love baby lime already.
