12 Weeks

My first bumpdate for kid #2. Crazy, huh? Well, its been almost 2 months since we found out and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Almost 1/3 of the way done! One of my goals for this pregnancy is to document it better. I only have like 4 bump pictures from C and the last one was at 30 weeks - a month before I delivered him. I don't even have a picture of me pregnant in the hospital! Hind sight and all that.

How far along? 12 weeks

Baby is the size of a... plum

Weight gain: About 5 lbs. so far.

Sleep: I can't get enough! I'm still neck deep in first trimester exhaustion and I'm over it. I can, however, still sleep comfortably on my stomach thanks to our memory foam bed topper.

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing in particular, though J would probably differ in opinion. Its not so much that I'm craving anything specific, but I'm never sure what I'm in the mood for until I see it.

General symptoms/feelings: Exhaustion and headaches are my two big ones right now. Thankfully, the nausea has mostly subsided!

Maternity clothes: Tops are still fitting alright, but pants are definitely maternity. I waited so long to make the switch with C. I know better this time. Why squeeze into uncomfortable pants held shut with a hair tie when I can wear maternity slacks that feel like pajama pants? Win!

Movement: Nothing yet. I felt C around 16 weeks, so sometime in the next month I should start feeling some tiny bubbles.

Gender: We'll find out in mid-November!

Last appointment: My last appointment was on September 10th at 11 weeks with one of the midwives at my practice. My blood pressure was right on target and the baby's heart rate was around 160. She found it right away with the doppler!

Next appointment: Monday, October 8th @ 15 weeks.

Best moment of last week: Getting to tell everyone the great news!

    1. Can you believe we're doing this again? Cuz its still hitting me. LOL

      Hope the Rusczyk household is feeling better! Can't wait to see you all this weekend!

  2. It makes me nostalgic. Too bad my hands are so full. If I weren't so busy I'd (almost) want to go through the months of nausea & excitement again. But, alas, Ben is enough most days to be his own little form of birth control! (Kidding!... Mostly.)
