12 weeks ~ baby i2


Hello last week of 1st trimester!

DATE:  April 4, 2013

How far along:  12 weeks

Total Weight Gained:
  Not sure! Last dr. appointment, 3 weeks ago I had lost 5 pounds

How big is baby?  "Your baby's the size of a plum!
The average fetus at 12 weeks is about 2.1 inches long and .49 ounces. Now that she's got pretty much all her parts, her main job is to keep on growing."  **taken from The Bump *** I copied the baby info directly from The Bump...instead of using the word "it", they describe the baby with he or she. Those are not my words.

How baby is growing
: **taken from The Bump
  • "Most of her critical systems are fully formed!

  • She's about to enter the growth and maturation stage, in which her organs and tissues will grow and develop rapidly.

  • She's now developing her reflexes -- if you poke her body, she'll likely move.

  • She's opening and closing her fingers and curling her toes, too.

  • Her brain is developing fast!"

  • Maternity Clothes:  some shirts for sure. Tshirts and comfy pants are my wardrobe. Can't wait for warmer weather and skirts and dresses.

    Sleep: Pretty interrupted. Lots of restlessness.

    Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week: finding results from our CVS! And learning our baby's gender and seeing the baby!  Big week!!

    Movement: late last week a couple thumps and after seeing baby via ultrasound moving like crazy, it makes perfect sense!

    Food Cravings:  icees and cereal

    Food Aversions:
    none really lately

    Gender:  We know, but we haven't yet revealed! :)

    Symptoms:  heartburn, irritibility, bloated, exhaustion, sore boobs

    What I miss: sleeping normally and not having heartburn

    What I'm looking forward to: Revealing our baby's gender

    2. Yay! I am so happy to hear you have a healthy baby girl growing in your tummy!!! xoxo

    3. Stopping by from Oct 2013 Birth board to say hi! I'm a week behind you, so anxiously awaiting your updates to know what's next for me! This pregnancy is so different from my first, I feel like I'm in foreign territory :)

      I'm quite jealous you know the gender - I'd LOVE to find out! We have to wait until 5/17 :)

    4. I love the pictures of that sweet little baby, and of course, YOU!
