Oooo, I feel good again.

The headache that has plagued me for a couple of weeks let up yesterday, and has yet to return. (Knock on wood.)

I actually felt good enough yesterday to get outside, rake the yard a bit, remove some dead grass and lay down some Patchmaster. It was a good feeling to get stuff done. Now, hopefully the Tree people that are coming by tomorrow don’t ruin all my hard work.

So, yeah…that’s that. Just counting down the days/hours until we see Smudge again. 45 hours from now! Squeee!!

12 weeks.

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +/- 0, still. I fluctuate a bit, but still hovering around the same.
Maternity clothes? Still capris and bella band. Today the bella band is even uncomfortable.

Stretch marks? Not that I know of.

Sleep: Bought a body pillow that’s too damn big to stuff in the bed with us. Sleep has been pretty good, still trying to train myself to sleep on my side.

Best moment this week: I bought my first item of baby clothing. That was weird. $6 at Target!

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: Same as last week – PB&J, Cocoa Krispies, pickles – and most fruit.

Gender: I’m really wishing we were finding out.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out?
Innie, but getting wider. No likey.
What I miss: Not having a headache. I really miss not having a headache.

What I am looking forward to: The NT scan on Friday so we can see Smudge again!

Weekly Wisdom: Always bring snacks in your purse when you leave the house for more than an hour. I’m pretty sure just knowing I had nothing to eat while at that musical is what MADE me hungry.

Milestones: Yay! 12 WEEKS!

Fruit: 12 weeks.

As you move into the second trimester, baby shifts into the growth and maturation stage. After weeks in the critical development stage, almost all of baby’s systems are fully formed.

Also in my email today from the bump – Is the dizziness hitting? Want natural headache relief? – it’s quite ridiculous how predictable this pregnancy is…well, I’ve been having brain splitting headaches for 2 weeks now, and the dizziness is the worst (mostly only when going from sitting/laying down to standing). I’m actually going to call the clinic today about my headaches. I pretty much have them 12 hours out of every day. It’s really starting to suck.

Another first.

Category baby business, not so much

This is so disgusting, I had to post it. Someone has to find humor in my agony.

Pregnant ladies have gas. BAD GAS. This is no secret.

I’m sitting on the couch, watching the Twins while the hubs washes some dishes, and let out a fart.

It’s not an SBD. (Silent but deadly.) There’s an audible noise.

But it is deadly. And I suddenly want to vomit.

My own flatulence has caused me to dry heave.


I totally failed to notice…

I’m less than 200 days away now! Eee! (Still, 197 to go, but…anyway.)

So…weekend recap.

Ended up seeing Louis CK FRONT ROW on Friday night (so effing funny), and stayed out too late. (Too late meaning 11:30pm. Grandma, party of one.)

Saturday, went out for breakfast with the hubs and then went to Lowe’s and picked up some potted flowers for our house/yard. Two hanging, one tabletop and one patio rose bush. Here’s hoping I don’t kill any of them. (Yeah, right.) Then just stayed home that night, watched The Day the Earth Stood Still (F -) and then, to bed.

Sunday, slept until 8:30am (no longer capable of sleeping in on the weekends. Boo). Then went to see a friend perform in Seussical the Musical, then home, nap time, dinner, tv, bed.

Exciting, no?

Tomorrow, I’m officially 12 weeks! Yahoo!
