12 Weeks!

Ultrasound from our last visit a couple of weeks ago. You can see the forehead, nose and chin already!

How Far Along: 12 weeks, 5 days

Size of baby: Just over 2 inches. The baby is the size of a plum.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: -2 lbs. I've gained 1 of my lost pounds back.

Maternity Clothes: I broke down and wore a pair of maternity pants to church on Sunday because I was being too lazy to iron my regular pants which still fit just fine. May I confess that I did enjoy the elastic waistband!

Gender: Nothing official, but I have my suspicions. We find out for sure (if the baby cooperates) at our next appointment on January 3rd! Jeremy and I are both so excited. It seems like this pregnancy has flown by so far, and in less than 4 weeks we should know what we are having.

I put up a quiz on the left side of the page for you to vote whether you think we are having a boy or girl. We'll see how many of you readers are right soon enough!

Movement: Not yet.

Sleep: I'm doing better, but still pretty tired by night time.

Symptoms: Some dry heaving, but only one time to actually get sick this week. I think it scared Jackson since we were home alone, and he wasn't too happy with the baby for making me sick. It was really sweet that he was so concerned, but I just tried to make him understand that everything was fine.

Cravings: Blackberries! I can't get enough, which is funny since I couldn't get enough strawberries when I was pregnant with Jackson. Pretty similar cravings, huh!

What I Miss: Nothing really. It's been a pretty normal week.

Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat at our appointment. It was 160 beats per minute, and it's the sweetest sound I've heard in a long time!

What I am looking forward to: Finding out whether we are having a boy or a girl. It will be soon enough!

Your poll right now is 50% - 50%. I would say that that is very accurate -- it will be a boy or a girl.
