PREGNANCY WEEK 12- January 30, 2019 (24-30 Jan 2019)
What a week! The weather on Tuesday was interesting as it was a cold, wet, and rainy day that turned to snow during the evening commute.  I'd planned for the occasion and had soup in the crock pot waiting for us to come home. There is something SO awesome about coming home to a warm and fragrant meal on a cold winter day. I'm told more weather is coming.  I better start checking my crock pot recipes for sure.


How far along: 12 weeks

How big is baby: the size of a lime 

Gender: Unknown

Events of this week: Nothing too major here, guys.  We had a beautiful service on Sunday.  I finally got my cookies and cream shake that I didn't even know I wanted, and it was a pretty steady week.  No complaints.

Symptoms: My breasts are HUGE!  I promise I'd just said to myself that my cup size hadn't changed and the telltale blue veins that I get in my breasts during pregnancy weren't showing.  Then, I woke up a couple of nights ago and BAM, there they were!  And soreness is an understatement.  BUT it means things are progressing as they should so I won't complain.

Exercise/Activity: Still very little beyond walking throughout my office and climbing stairs.  I know.  I need to do better and hopefully it will help me feel better if an when I do.

Sleep: Never enough lol.  I hit a wall at 2PM everyday.  I want to take a nap, but can't so I do a walk around the office and come back to my desk just to get my energy levels up.  I am waking at night thought for bathroom trips.

Maternity clothes:  No, but I am wearing the larger banded waist pants in my wardrobe.  I see a need to adjust coming soon.

Stretch marks: The old ones from my previous pregnancies.

Belly Button: In.

Food cravings: No, not really.  I just want water

Food aversions: Coffee, which I don't drink anyway, smells HORRIBLE to me this week.

Movement: I am still going to say I am feeling flutters.

Best Moment of the Week: Snuggling with the girls to watch movies.

Worst Moment of the Week: Having someone make a public announcement on our behalf.  Not cool.

What I’m looking forward to: A day without nausea

What I’m nervous about/praying for: Praying for a healthy baby and a peaceful home

What I miss: Nothing really.

Any milestone: The breasts are huge!

Next appointment: 24 Feb
