Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 12 weeks!

your baby's the size of a plum!

Size of baby: The average fetus at 12 weeks is about 2.1 inches long and .49 ounces.

·         Baby Development This Week:  
  •         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!

Maternity Clothes: I ordered a few things last week. I got some maternity underwear which are big on me, but the most comfortable things ever! I also got a belly band and tried it out this week. It was interesting. I also found out it was very helpful last night, when I was having a back ache.

Gender: Unknown

Movement: I think last night when I was having a back ache that the baby may have been adjusting his/her position. No kicks yet!

Sleep: Sleep is still amazing! :)

 What I miss: I miss the smell and taste of coffee. (Before it made me sick) L

Cravings: Cool Ranch Doritos, a Snickers bar, Cheerwine, and Oven Roasted Chicken subs from Subway (Over a few days and they only lasted the day of. Except for the sub)

Symptoms: nausea, back ache, leg cramps

Best Moment this week: It isn’t really a moment, but I’m so thankful for my husband. He has been so thoughtful and wonderful through everything so far and I know he will continue to be my rock.

*** Be sure to check back next week for week 13! :)
