Twelve Week Update

by Heidi on September 13, 2012

So I hit twelve weeks this week! Huzzah! Sorry I forgot 11 weeks. Whoops. Though my ten week update was really at the end of 10 weeks, start of 11, so we’ll call it a wash.

Baby is…twelve weeks! Two weeks left of the first trimester! Baby is about the size of a lime this week and has started developing reflexes. Apparently prodding at my tummy will make baby squirm in response (it’s true, we had an ultrasound yesterday and baby was kicking up a storm and covering its face!) This week, at the nuchal translucency ultrasound, we heard the heartbeat :) Doctor predicted with an educated guess that it’s a girl, but the ultrasound tech seemed to think it was a boy – 50/50 chance either way! So we’ll see in about six more weeks!

How I’m feeling… same mostly. Though I’m starting to get a little bit of my energy back and I’ve stopped feeling nearly as nauseous as I was. 10

What I’m eating…. this week I haven’t had as many cravings though the Chinese food I had for lunch the other day and last night for our anniversary dinner went swimmingly with baby. Baby Schmidt loves dumplings as much as his/her mama does :) I’ve finally started drinking more water than Ginger Ale, which is a positive though ginger ale definitely helped me survive the past month or so.

Weight gained…. none. I feel really good about that. I’m still wavering between 144-142 which is not too bad. Just trying to stay healthy and active while I can :)
