Oh Baby! Week 12 of 40

Filed under: Oh Baby! 

This photo was taken at the Pumpkin Patch in Caledonia, MS. It was quite windy, hence the hair in my face.

I officially have a baby bump.  Its more noticeable in the evening for whatever reason.  Other than the growing bump, this week hasn’t been too exciting.  I have mostly just been tired as usual.

Pregnancy Stats

  • Weeks Pregnant:  11 weeks and 6 days ( I am actually 12 weeks as of today but this post was meant for yesterday.)
  • Size of my tiny baby:  A Large Plum  ( Length:  2.5  in.  Weight:  .5 oz.)
  • My Weight:  120 lbs.  Total Gain:  5 lbs. ( I actually lost 1 lb. this week or maybe I just need a better scale.) 

How am I feeling?

  • Emotionally:  This week hasn’t been too bad emotionally.  I have been maybe a tad more moody, but it happens.
  • Physically:  I have still been so exhausted.  I started sleeping with a pillow in between my legs to get more comfortable.  I’ll probably need to get one of those pregnancy pillows soon.
  • Fun Pregnancy Stuff:  I finally figured out what the belly band is for and how it is used!  I received a belly band aka tube top looking piece of clothing with my Pregnancy Starter Kit from Forever 21.  I really wasn’t sure what it was used for until this past weekend.  I was shopping for jeans that are 1 size bigger at Revolution, which is a really cute little consignment store here in Starkville.  After trying on like 5 pairs of jeans in various sizes without one pair even sort of fitting correctly, I honestly felt like I might cry.  Ben and I went to pay for the record he found and I said to the cashier, “Do you have maternity clothes here?”  She said, “No but I am not really sure why we don’t.”  I rudely exclaimed, “Probably because they all suck.”  I think she could tell I was on edge and offered to help.  She told me about 2 online stores and even told me about another consignment shop in Starkville that carried maternity clothes.  I explained to her that I’m really not ready for maternity clothes yet but that my jeans don’t fit.  Then she made my day by saying, “why don’t use just use a belly band?”  She proceeded to explain that you can wear your own jeans just unbuttoned and slide the belly band over the unbuttoned part and it holds up your jeans.  I had no idea.  Sometimes the kindness of strangers amazes me.
  • Cravings:  I have been craving pickles, tuna mac and yesterday I was really craving KFC.   I am still craving tuna mac and I have already ate it for 3 meals this week.  I will probably make some more tonight.
*Thanks Carol Jones for sending me pickles!  Your homemade pickles are the best!
