This isn’t turning into an annoying blog. I promise. But I figured that someone might like the update, and I might regret it if I didn’t update. PLUS I feel like a lot of moms, especially ones that are further removed, get amnesia and try to act like they’ve never heard of whatever symptom you might be having.
How far along: 12 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Clementine.
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I’ve put on a few – like maybe 5ish the last time I checked? My boobs are absolutely gargantuan. I’m still waiting on a belly. So that folks aren’t just assuming that I’m bloated. Like I care though. I’m too tired to care.
Sleep: Constantly. I could sleep any time of the day.
Best moment this week: Zumba party – I felt great, and really felt a surge of energy.
Food cravings: I like pickle chips from Village Drafthouse. But since they’re fried, they’re kind of a kiss of death. One really really fun thing about pregnancy is that your digestion slows way down. Food that may upset you a smidge in real life, really have an adverse affect on you while pregnant. Beans and fried things do not feel good whatsoever.
Food aversions: I’ve been veg for a while. I have been eating some chicken and turkey, but it’s a little rough for me, because meat tastes pretty meaty. But the smell of cooking meat is disgusting to me. Red meat in particular smells bloody, and I think there’s a pretty good chance I won’t be eating that any time soon.
Symptoms: I’m just tired. But like I said, I think that’s starting to lift.
Looking forward to: Catching up on things. I always feel like there’s something else to be done. I don’t think as long as I live, that I will ever feel caught up. And more running, now that my energy is slowly seeping back in.

Your digestion DOES slow way down! My girlfriend is proof. She ate red beets and said it was 5 days until they went through her and she was peeing red…FIVE DAYS! I eat beets and within 3 hours I am pooping/peeing red! I have never understood why it is so slow during pregnancy.
It’s like, all your blood supply is focused on other things, NOT digestion, so it results in tons of upset.
Glad you have some energy! As for the digestion…. YES. I have to make sure I’m drinking a ton of water to move things along.
Congrats! I remember feeling awkward posting these updates at first, but I’m so glad I did, I printed them all out and put them in the baby book 🙂 I’m glad that you’re tiredeness doesn’t seem to be sticking around.
Me too! I feel really good today, almost like my pre pregnancy self, so here’s hoping the second tri is more fun!
Congratulations!! I am glad your energy has returned. 🙂
Me too! I am still getting in bed way, way earlier than I used too, which is kinda nice, but I don’t get that feeling like I’m just gonna pass out all day long.
