It’s time for my very first ‘bumpdate’!
Anyway, let’s get to it!
How far along: 12 weeks
How big is baby?: Plum
Weight gain: Minimal. Maybe a pound.
Symptoms: I’m very blessed to say that I’ve felt great through the first trimester! Only a few headaches/migraines, which I’m already prone to, but half of a Diet Pepsi helps so much! Oh and frequent urination to the point of slight annoyance (TMI?). And best symptom ever – my skin is glowing! I’ve noticed it myself, but I’ve had numerous people mention it to me as well!
Sleeping: Intermittent insomnia. I pass out soooo early from sheer exhaustion, but wake up in the middle of the night with my mind racing. For hours. That’s fun! ;)
Food cravings: Mangoes. Like crazy. I would stab someone for a mango. And s’mores.
Food aversions: Almonds. I can’t even stand the thought of them. Blah. Gross.
Miss anything?: Craft beer!
Gender: No idea, we don’t get to find out for another six weeks!
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Maternity Clothes?: I am only now starting to show, and just the slightest bit. I’m at the stage where it just looks like I ate too much. But I went ahead and ordered a few dresses from Pink Blush Maternity that should take me through the summer/fall, thanks to my amazing hubby who gave me a gift certificate for (pre)Mother’s Day!
Movement: Too soon to feel anything, but we did get to see the baby dancing around on a recent ultrasound! So cute!
What I did/got for baby: Ok, let’s go there. I’ve already bought Baby C. his/her own personalized Patriots jersey, since my due date is smack in the middle of football season (December 12th). It was a necessity, even though it’s barely June. Also, a tiny little hat and booties (as pictured in our announcement photo). My sister-in-law got me the cutest doggie bath wrap for baby that looks like my Chester! And I got a sling thingie to hold baby in around the house. I already put my cat in the sling to make sure baby will fit. Or really because I just wanted to put my cat in the sling.
What I’m looking forward to: Finding out the sex so we can start choosing nursery decor! And more shopping :)
Best moment of the week: FINALLY announcing my pregnancy publicly!
