12 Weeks! Yay!!

How far along: 12 weeks

Size of baby: Peanut should be about 2 1/2 inches, the size of a large plum

Weight gain: As of last week I have lost 11 lbs.

Maternity clothes: Just belly bands, but the belly is growing... you never know!

Gender: Most think girl but there are a few that are sure it's a boy!  We'll see in another 6 weeks!

Movement: Not yet but I am looking forward to that day!

Sleep: I could sleep all day! Sleeping is not a problem yet and I am trying to enjoy it while I can!

Symptoms: The nausea is letting up a little bit. I still get it in the mornings and at night before bed, but there are a couple of hours in the middle of the day that, if I keep food in my stomach, I feel somewhat normal. My boobs are still swollen and sore and I am tired ALL THE TIME!! 

Cravings: It changes from day to day.  Lately it's been cheeseburgers... you know the good kind from Top Spot or Brads, but in a pinch McDonalds will do.  I also love chips and salsa!!

Best Moment this week: Making it to 12 weeks of course!

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move for the first time.  Also, we go back in 4 weeks for a check up... don't know how I will make it that long!

Congrats! I'm glad to hear everything is going well. I had a question; when you say "down 11 pounds" does that mean you've gained 11 pounds or lost 11 pounds? Just wondering. Love all of the baby updates btw. :)
