12-week bumpdate

Yesterday, I was officially 12 weeks pregnant! I was so happy that Ryan was still around for that little milestone because this is the last progress picture he's going to be able to take for a long while. Last night, he confessed that he hopes I have "a big 'ol belly" when he comes home, and I'l admit - I wouldn't mind actually looking pregnant, too! My next OB appointment is tomorrow, so hopefully it will all be good news :)

^^^ not entirely certain what this face is…maybe it's my 'I have no makeup on…is this necessary? face."

How far along: 12 weeks

Gender: We're not finding out!

Weight gain: Nothing...Weight, as usual depends on whether I'm able to poo or not. However, when I can (which is getting better, by the way), I haven't gained anything. 

Maternity clothes: None. I've started wearing looser tops though, as evidenced by my shirt above. Tight things aren't too comfortable anymore.

Stretch marks: Not on my stomach. My boobs, however, grew a cup size in 12 weeks. There are tiny little lines on them. Belly, however, is golden.

Belly button in or out: In

Sleep: I'm sleeping great! If I drink too much water too late, I have a trip or two to the bathroom, but otherwise I've been golden!

Best moment this week: The best moment is yet to come. Another OB appointment tomorrow and getting to hear the peanut's heartbeat. 

Miss anything: Food. I don't really have anything specific I want, I'd just like to eat with abandon again.

Movement: Nope.

Cravings: Ice and ice water. Yes, I am aware this is often a sign of iron deficiency in pregnant women, so I'll be addressing it with my doctor tomorrow, especially since I have no appetite whatsoever. I am not concerned, since I think it's in large part because of the heat here in AZ.

Food aversions: All meat and eggs, really. They don't make me nauseous anymore, but I just have no desire to eat them.

Looking forward to: Hearing baby's heartbeat tomorrow and getting an update on our progress! I'm also counting the days till Ryan's home…I'll be 17 weeks!


  1. I hate chicken right now lol. Other meat is okay for the time being.

    You look and sound great! :)

  2. how are you getting the baby protein if you don't like the meats and eggs right now ?

  3. Hope your appointment goes well! Being able to eat with abandon - haha love that part!

  4. Hopefully the next 5 weeks with Ryan gone fly- so cool you are almost out of the first trimester!!

  5. I hope that these next few weeks fly by! And I love that you get to hear Baby Moore's heartbeat tomorrow!!!! Oh and that you're feeling better!!!

  6. Good luck at your appointment tomorrow! Also I love your face in that picture, to me it's an, "I'm super excited to be taking this picture but I'm trying not to show it" face.

  7. So exciting to hear the heartbeat tomorrow! :D

  8. Hearing that heartbeat is what makes the doctors appointment enjoyable! :)

  9. TEXT ME AFTER YOUR APPTTTTT!!!!!! You're adorable as always;) Love ya!

  10. We had a hard time finding the heartbeat that first visit and I was all freaked out. We found it eventually, but I wish someone had told me upfront it can take a while to find it at first. Thankful all was well. Congratulations to you!
