How far along: 12 weeks
How big is the peanut: The size of a Lime
Total weight gain/loss: up another pound. Coming in at 116.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet. Thankfully, flowy tops are in! Seriously loving this top from Grace and grit boutique. It’s not a maternity shirt but there’s plenty of room to grow!
Sleep: Amazing! I’m out within minutes and don’t move until morning.
Best moment this week: Feeling the first tirmister tiredness starting to fade!
Symptoms/ Morning sickness: Pregnancy Brain! Last week I had to make a return at Target. Got half way there and realized I forgot want I was trying to return. Turned around to get it, got to target and forgot my wallet at home!
The last few weeks have been off and on. One day I’ll feel 100% then the next I’m sick as a dog. I’ve randomly thrown up twice. No apparent cause.
Food Craving: Burgers still! One with cheese, onion, pickles, mayo, mustard and ketchup. And now my mouth is watering.
Food Aversions: No food aversions.
Gender: Too soon to know.
What I miss: I’m not really missing anything this week. Pretty satisfied being Prego.
What I’m looking forward to: This week’s appointment! Nothing like hearing that little heart beat!
Bump: It’s on the way! The whole “you show faster with your second” is so so true for me!
Exercise: Getting back into swing of it! The last two weeks were off a little with not feeling well but I’m ready to get back into my routine. I’m also taking some continuing education classes regarding proper pregnancy exercises! I’m so stoked to be learning this info to pass on to my clients AND apply to myself!
This week’s takeaway: Your second pregnancy is alway harder. It’s harder because you already have a child. In my situation (most moms actually) a very young child. Toddlers don’t get “Mommy wants a break” BUT it totally melts my heart when she runs up to me, throws her arms around me and starting talking to the baby. I can’t wait to see her as a big sister.
