Twelve Weeks Pregnant

Twelve weeks! Some say this is the end of the first trimester, some say thirteen weeks. Either way I am excited to have made it this far! I am definitely feeling baby move more. Nothing consistent and there is no way to trigger her movement, but I can feel her! I love feeling baby move! I also found the heartbeat on the doppler! 11 weeks and 4 days is when I first found the heartbeat. It is so neat to be able to hear her! Bunny, my 3 1/2 year old, thinks this baby is a girl and I have heard older siblings under the age of 5 are typically correct. So yay for another girl! I had an appointment with my home birth midwife. My uterus is already 3 finger widths below my belly button. My body remembers what to do! My nausea is worse this week but some days its a touch better. I am hoping now that I am 12 weeks it will start to subside. Fingers crossed!

Symptoms:

So tired. And the nausea is intense. It has gotten worse this week. Everything smells disgusting. I want to never smell again! I would also like to sleep for a week straight with no interruptions. I have to pee every 2 hours, even at night. Sleep is evading me! I have been having a hard time falling asleep. I also wake up in the middle of the night and can not fall back asleep. Nursing is still going well. Baby Sister, 19 months, is starting to nurse less during the day but more at night. I am hoping she starts sleeping for longer periods of time soon. Bunny started sleeping through the night around 18 months and that was heavenly. It is now Baby Sister’s turn! 12 weeks means I am starting my belly stickers! Yay!

Cravings:

Still nothing. Food is to be eaten so my stomach doesn’t eat itself. I can not wait for cravings to come again!

Aversions:

Still everything. I am barely eating because everything sounds gross. I know this will end soon and I will want to eat everything in sight. I can not wait!
