12 weeks

*posted early just for you Cori :)

What a good feeling it is to be able to say I made it to 12 weeks! Only one more week to go & I will be moving on to 2nd trimester :)
Baby, fetus at 12 weeks - BabyCenter
How far along? 12 weeks (baby is just over 2 inches long & the size of a lime) 

Symptoms: The nausea is pretty much gone except when I first get up & still feeling pretty tired come mid-afternoon. Also this past week I have started getting heartburn more often which I have never had before. 

Weight gain/loss: Remember those 3 lbs I lost last week? Well, they quickly returned. Now I am back at 2 lbs above my starting weight. 

Maternity clothes? Not yet but I did buy a couple of knit "maxi dresses" this week for fall that are cute! I am loving how comfortable knit skirts & dresses are :)

Sleep: Still get up a couple of times to pee & still have trouble falling back to sleep after the 3am wake-up call. I am also a right-sided & back sleeper so I have started to consciously stop sleeping on my back but will end up waking up there :( I have read sleeping on the left side is best but I hate laying on my left - hopefully I get it figured out.

Food cravings: I have been on a "panini" kick this past week. I recently bought a panini press & will buy the ciabatta bread loaves at Panera Bread Co. I have been eating all kinds of different hot panini's & loving them. My favorite is the tomato, basil, mozzarella panini. So yummy!

Movement? no - too early to feel it but getting a sneak peek this week at Baby T I could see that he/she was moving all around in there.

What I miss? cold turkey sandwiches from Jimmy John's & Panera

Best moment this week: making it to my last week of the 1st trimester

What I'm looking forward to: another chance to see Baby T at our 1st trimester screening US this Friday

Next Appointment: 14 week visit with the OB on August, 6th 

Milestones: Baby T's fingers are beginning to open & close, toes can now curl, the eye muscles can clench, the mouth can make sucking movements, the kidneys will begin excreting urine into the bladder, the eyes have moved from the sides to the front of the head, & the ears are right where they should be.
