I know, I know, I promised no baby updates, but whatever, I lied. Baby J is 12 weeks, and we got to hear the heartbeat on Monday! We are just a few days away from officially being in the second trimester!
How far along? 12 weeks (the size of a plum!)
Weight gain: 3 pounds, officially.
I’m feeling: Nervous and overwhelmed. I haven’t really let the excitement sink in, because there is so much that I don’t know and need to get done before the baby comes.
Maternity clothes: I officially can’t get into my skinny jeans. So there’s been a lot of leggings and a lot of dresses and sweaters. I did just order a pair of maternity jeans, so we’ll see how that goes.
Sleep: Still really sucks. I’m still getting up about 2-3 times a night, and staying up at least thirty minutes to an hour every time I do get up. It’s really frustrating — almost to the point of tears. Of course, that could just be the hormones, too.
Miss anything? Being able to sleep through the night….
Food cravings? Not really, yet, but I think I had my first food aversion to chicken salad. Which makes me sad, because I love the stuff!
Baby J has made it through Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and momma’s birthday. Next up, Mardi Gras!
