In case you missed it, last week I announced our big news! We are so thankful and thrilled and I'm so glad that the news is finally "out"! It's really hard to keep such a big secret for so long!
I'm currently 12 weeks along. Here are some of my past weekly "updates"....
As you can see, I have no real bump yet...but I feel like it's definitely coming soon! I definitely bloat super easy, that's for sure! My nausea has been up and down. Some weeks it's awful, other weeks it's manageable. In the grand scheme of things, I feel very lucky with the "symptoms" I've been experiencing!
Here is my most recent bump shot:
Baby is currently the size of a PLUM!
Next Appointment: October 25th is our elective ultrasound to find out if Carson is getting a baby brother or sister! My next OB (doppler) appointment is November 11th!
Gender: We will know by the end of next week!
Total Weight Gain: I have no idea....I wasn't up at all at my last appointment a week ago.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet! I got them out of the storage bin, but they're still in a space bag. I am totally comfortable in my regular jeans still....thankfully! :)
Food Cravings/Aversions: No new cravings but I'm still loving orange hi-c! I used to go to the McDonald's drive-thru to pick them up but I ended up buying some juice boxes at the grocery. :) As far as aversions, a lot of meat sounds gross to me. I bought chicken breasts and ground turkey for a few dinners I was going to make and couldn't even get them out to prep, yuck!
Best Moment This Week: I took Carson with me to my OB appointment and we had to wait quite a while. He was getting pretty restless. Once Dr G set up the doppler, Carson smiled SO big when he heard the heart beat. Probably a coincidence but it still made me so happy!
What I Miss: I miss not waking up in the middle of the night to pee! I also miss having energy....hopefully that will return soon!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Our elective ultrasound next Friday! I'm also looking forward to not feeling so bloated and feeling pregnant instead. Unfortunately that could be a while, who knows!
Extra Notes From the Week: This week I had to go in for some extra blood work to get my bile acids checked. After speaking to my doctor at my 10/7 appointment, she wanted to get me tested for Cholestasis. I feel pretty confident that I don't have it because it is most common later in pregnancy. They said they will call me with the results by Friday so until then, I will not stress!
