12 weeks

How Far Along: 12 weeks

Size of Baby: 3 inches, peach sized (according to my phone app)

Picture of Baby:

Maternity Clothes: Nope- though I think it's time to start looking for some pants.

Weight Gain:  Zero

Belly:  It's starting to feel a little hard, which I guess means it's starting to be a belly.

Stretch Marks: None.

Sleep: I'm still tired all the time but it seems to be improving some.  I'm still waking up a few times each night to use the bathroom, too.

Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our baby for the first time actually looking like a baby.  He/she was sleepy when we first started the ultrasound but perked up after a bit.  It was truly amazing to see he/she moving around and to know this is happening for real.
Movement: Nope, too soon.

Symptoms: Exhausted, nausea, heartburn.

Food Cravings: Nothing really.

Gender: We'll find out on February 20th.

What I Miss: Peanut Butter- Matt has severe allergies to peanut butter and I heard it is good to avoid it if you or your spouse has allergies.

What I'm Looking Forward To:  Shopping with my mom this weekend for maternity pants!
Nursery: It's an empty room upstairs right now that has been sitting for 3 years...soon enough we'll think about getting to work on it.

Weekly Wisdom: I'm just enjoying every minute of this experience.

Milestones: Family, friends and my students know all know that we are pregnant!

Emotions: Excited, nerves are calming down, extremely blessed and lucky!


  1. whoohoo Lora!! So happy for you!!

  2. 12 weeks!! Congrats! The 12 week mark is a huge milestone. Shopping for maternity clothes must be a weird feeling. I think I'd feel like an imposter in the maternity department. Happy shopping!
