This week, baby has become a fully formed fetus. It weighs about a half an ounce and is roughly the size of a peach. I had my 12 week check-up on Monday and didn’t do a 12 Week post because my weight and tummy measurements were off… It appeared that my tummy had shrunk half of an inch and I had lost about 3 pounds. I wanted to wait and see what my weight was when I went for my check-up. Everything looked good and apparently any weight I though I had lost, I found before my appointment.
Weight: 3 lbs. (I started out at 110, and now I weigh 115 so technically I’ve gained 5 pounds. However, I usually weigh around 112, so I would say I’ve only really gained 3 pounds.)
Waist Line: 33″. Patrick has started calling me “Belly” and people are already asking what I’m having. I’m a little embarrassed to tell them I’m only 13 weeks and won’t find out for about 5 more weeks.
Signs & Symptoms: I’m like an emotional rollercoaster. One minute I feel great and the next I feel terrible. I try to get as much done as possible when I’m feeling good. My skin looks like that of a teenager who just hit puberty. I’ll be trying every suggestion I get until I find a solution to the problem! I’ve been having ridiuclous headaches and backaches. Thankfully, I still haven’t had any real morning sickness.
Looking Forward To: the second trimester, when I should start feeling much better and warm weather and sundresses!
