Most of her critical systems are fully formed! She’s about to enter the growth and maturation stage, in which her organs and tissues will grow and develop rapidly. She’s now developing her reflexes — if you poke her body, she’ll likely move. She’s opening and closing her fingers and curling her toes, too. Her brain is developing fast!
How Far Along: 12 Weeks
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Currently Craving: Nothing really. I have a hard time figuring out what I want to eat. The morning sickness has not gone away yet. With Mason it was already gone. With Elena it was still here just like this time.
Currently Avoiding: Everything? But not really like I can either but I’m only eating because I should eat.
Weight: 157 according to the doctor’s scale which is 1lb less than two weeks ago!
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: Still can’t get enough. In fact I’d like to take a nap right now.
Recent Crazy Dream: I had a really bad dream last night. It was so bad I woke up. Basically what happened was is that I was driving towards my house which was in the city and in an apartment. I was frantic to get there because there was basically a war or an apocalypse or something going on and B had both of the kids. When I got there I couldn’t pull up directly in front of the building so I stopped the car, locked it and went in the trunk to get some basic things and these three raggedy looking men started surrounding me so I gave them each a blanket but they still wanted more and it looked like things were about to get bad when this man popped out and saved me from them. Then I ran to the apartment and it was completely ransacked and B and the kids were gone BUT he left a note so me and some other woman (also looking for her hubs and kids) started following the directions. We were trying to open the ceiling with these keys that had been provided for us (keys by the way that were iron and were very valuable apparently) because as we were trying to open the ceiling this guy wearing a rack of keys came in and demanded them but we of course told him no because we needed them and he came after us but we ended up stabbing him and killing him.
I don’t really remember much after that. She being really scared and running away and then I woke up.
Evidence of pregnancy brain: I’ve washed the same load of laundry about 5 times this week. I keep forgetting it’s in there! B has not.
Symptoms?: Still really nauseous. I got a not so good headache this week too. Feeling queasy as I type!
Health: I felt like absolute crap this weekend. Could barely eat anything without feeling sick to my stomach but I feel a little bit better now. Still queasy though.
Emotions: They’re on high alert. I’m so paranoid about this pregnancy and everything makes me cry. I just want this baby to be okay and I miss Elena so much.
Movement: Not yet.
Any appointments?: I had one yesterday. I had felt like such crap and was a little nervous I had a UTI so I scheduled an appointment. I don’t have a UTI AND I was able to hear Baby 3’s heartbeat. It was in the high 150s, low 160s.
Any baby related purchases?: Not this week!
Best thing to happen in the past week/ Worst: Hearing the baby’s heartbeat again was the best. And the worst has been just not feeling good. My pregnancy with Elena was a lot like this but I don’t know if that’s normal or if that’s a bad sign!
And my 12 Week Flump!
Side Note: My NT scan is in 6 days on September 4th. I’m SO excited to see baby again in detail and hopefully to get a gender guess! I’m not sure if I’m going to share the guess though until it’s confirmed so keep that in mind 🙂
Pregnant? Play along:
