Date: July 8, 2014
How far along: 12 weeks today!
The belly size: Definitely starting to look pronounced!
The baby size: Baby is the size of a large plum! He or she is about 2.5 inches and weighs half an ounce!
Weight gain: About 7-8 pounds. Ate a lot this weekend for the 4th of July and my nephew’s first birthday though so who knows. Yuck!
Symptoms/how I’m feeling: I’ve been feeling very emotional lately. Like, probably once a day I’ll hear a random song on the radio that gets me all teary eyed. These are usually songs that don’t even have significance to me – haha. I heard one of my favorite running songs and then missed running and almost cried. I’ll also hear a sappy song and get all emotional. Then, I was reading about epidurals and almost cried because dang, that stuff looks scary! Also, I’ve been getting SO out of breath from nothing, and I’m very thirsty! Oh, and my legs ache intermittently. However, I haven’t been too nauseous lately! Good news there.
Sleep: Not too bad!
Eating: I’ve been into bagels lately. Mmmm. I’ve been getting “everything” bagels with garlic herb cream cheese from my favorite bagel place. We also had a lot of good (bad) food from our 4th of July party, nephew’s first birthday party, and then our first fire pit of the season with my family where we had S’mores. Mmmm.
Exercising: Jerry and I decided to try and get back to the gym this week. I’ll just do a little bit of treadmill walking.
Clothes: I can still wear some of my regular clothes, but have been wearing maternity shirts a lot because I’m feeling self-conscious.
Missing: Feeling and looking fit!
Best moment: We had a great long, holiday weekend celebrating with the family and went to see fireworks. My nephew was impressed!
Looking forward to: Tomorrow’s appointment to hear the heartbeat, and Thursday’s first trimester screening test because we’ll have an ultrasound! Also, we’re almost into the second trimester so we’ll be more out of the danger zone in just a week!
