Pregnancy Update: Week 12

This baby deep inside of me, ever so small, is a child of God. A child that God gave to me to take care of whether for a day or for years. That care began at conception. Whether he or she lives or dies each day I am with him or her is a gift and has a purpose with eternal consequences. My baby is now a part of my life, my testimony. -Brenda Rodgers, "New Rules for Announcing a Pregnancy"

How far along: 12 weeks!

"Most of his systems are in place, though there's still plenty of maturing to do. For one thing, his fetal digestive system is beginning to practice contraction movements necessary for eating, and his bone marrow is busy making white blood cells."-What to Expect When You're Expecting, 4th Edition

Baby size:  "baby weighs a full half-ounce and is about the size of a large plum" -What to Expect When You're Expecting, 4th Edition

Gender: We'll find out when he/she arrives in March!

Weight gain: None yet, but that could be because I lost some weight during the tummy troubles time. I'm sure this new found appetite will make up for it soon though. haha.
Belly: I've got an itty bitty belly! The change is exciting to watch!

Sleep: Sleep is ... well, it is what it is. I'm so thankful for the ability to rest or nap during the day when needed!

Clothes: Knits are amazing! I've only had to retire a couple of denim skirts thus far. I've been keeping an eye out for pieces that work and are reasonably priced, and then adding a few new ones here and there. 

Movement: Okay, so my  Pregnancy Fitness dvd is still sitting, as it my rear. I've been so exhausted lately that exercise has not be high on my list. Oh well. We have at least gone for walks around the neighborhood a few times. I'd rather get my exercise by walking together outside anyways!

Food aversions: Anything unfamiliar or with a strong smell while cooking. Poor hubby man has cooked a few meals for us that normally would've been fine, but currently the kitchen smells have been too much for me to enjoy them. I can enjoy them as leftovers though. I feel so bad that he's done so much to make us something, and then we take a trip out to eat somewhere. I guess we're still learning certain food dos and don'ts. haha. 

Food cravings: I seem to have taken a turn towards the ability to eat and eat and eat. I'm pretty much loving anything I'm familiar with and can eat in large quantities. haha.

What I'm excited about: Another appointment and ultrasound this week. Hubby is going to try to work it out with his work day to be able to come with me. I'm so excited for him to hear the little heartbeat! It's such an incredible moment to see this little one grow and hear that heartbeat. The excitement of him sharing that moment with me is certainly helping to ease nervousness. It's also fun to see hubby so at ease and enthused about this little one. It really warms my heart to know this little one will have such an amazing Pop. He certainly is an incredible husband to me! :)
