12 Weeks Pregnant

I am going to try to be more faithful with these this time around. haha. 

  • 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!

Information from www.thebump.com

Maternity Clothes: yes and no! Maternity shirts are definitely more comfortable for me but pants I can go either way. Dresses obviously are still easy to 

Gender: We don't know yet. But we are finding out this time around!! yay!! =) Im excited to find out since we waited last time.  It was so much fun to wait but I am excited to have it the other way this time.

Movement: I think I have already felt this baby move.  I know that is pretty much unheard of.  But it actually doesn't surprise too much me because at 8 weeks when we had an ultrasound the baby was so squirmy that she could hardly get a good picture of him or her! 

What I Miss:
 ENERGY! Oh my! I am so drained ALL the time!!! 

Sleep: I have had insomnia with this pregnancy.  It has been awful.  My body wants to sleep but my mind wont go to sleep.  One night of bad or no sleep I take a half of a Unisom pill and it knocks me out enough to sleep but I still wake up to Derek getting home from work and Thomas crying. So that is nice! 

Cravings: It varies and not as exact as with Thomas.  I still have the cravings when nothing else will satisfy.  That is starting to go away, thankfully. 

What We Are Looking Forward To: I am looking forward to looking pregnant and not fat. haha.  Right now I just look like a put on a few pounds. lol. 

*Please ignore my awful makeup and hair in this picture.  I was exhausted!! :)

12 Weeks Pregnant!
