Bump Attack: 12 Weeks

Weight Gain: the same 3 lbs. I'll take it! 

Cravings: nothing really! I wouldn't turn down a whole box of McD's French fries! That's nothing new. Cheese and I still have a love affair going on. 

Symptoms: the nausea is still present but not nearly as persistent. I was able to eat sushi for the first time without feeling sick afterward. Zofran has truly been my best friend for the past 6 weeks. I don't need it daily and some days I will break it in quarters and take a quarter to to ward off the icky feeling. Breasts feel normal. My feet and ankles swell much faster and easier now but I knew that would happen. I'm praying for a mild summer instead of a sizzling hot one! My taste buds are out of whack. Nothing really tastes REALLY good. The water and ice in my house even tasted funny to me. 

I was excited, nervous, uneasy, going into this week. I've literally been holding my breath for the past 6 weeks. I had some complications with Jordan up until my 12 week. Of course he was born completely healthy but I still worried. 

Our family and close friends know that we are pregnant now! We haven't made it "FB official" and I don't think we will until we did out what we're having. 

Gender Prediction: several of my friends have done "old wives tale" gender prediction rituals on me. One was with a necklace, girl. One was with baking soda and per (my own...not as gross as it sounds), girl. Chinese Gender Chart, girl. As much as I want to believe it, I'm still betting on boy. Yes, this pregnancy has been so different from my first one but I don't really put any stock into that.

Stretch Marks: I got them with Jordan so if there are any new ones, I haven't noticed them. 

What's Next: Appointment on June 14th. I had gestational diabetes with Jordan so they are going to test me early this time. I'm secretly hoping that I will get an ultrasound and that they can give me a hint of what we're having! 

I think I'll update every two weeks, unless something exciting happens between then. Right now, my outward body isn't really changing.   

As promised, a bump picture! Excuse the pretty hair, this is after a cycle class! 

This post is current! I will be 13 weeks tomorrow!
