I keep these out on my dresser to remind me of what's to come...and that sickness isn't forever.
The 12 Week Rundown
Baby Size: A lime!
Feeling: Some days I've been feeling great--others I've felt terrible. I'm mostly getting sick later at night though (after dinner), a mixed blessing. I'm able to play with Aurora more, and cook dinners, but it's hard to get work done and sleep.
Weight gain: I've lost a couple more pounds, but nothing to be worried about. I felt like my appetite was coming back for a few days. Now it's waning again. :(
Cravings/Aversions: Still craving sour things, but occasionally sweet (like coconut froyo!). Also, baby carrots (no idea why). I have been cooking a little more, and when I cook, I try to add veggies. Fries or potatoes are still a go-to when I'm a little nauseous. And still not interested in salad. Have had a little coffee here and there, but I don't think it helps with any of my symptoms, so this pregnancy may still be coffee free...or, maybe I'll try again in iced coffee season.
Preparations: I have been doing a lot of reading--probably too much. I am much more anxious with this pregnancy, knowing all the things that could possibly go wrong. I wish I could feel less stressed out about it. I also packed up all my summer dresses, tees, and tanks that I know won't accommodate a big ol' belly. It was bittersweet! I picked up a few new maternity things at the thrift, including an awesome maxi dress that I foresee living in this summer!
Hoping to get an outfit post in this weekend. I feel like there may be a little bump...or, you know, maybe it's just gas (which is in ample supply these days thanks to my sluggish prego intestines).
