Diary Of A Pregnant Gal || Week 12

8.27.2014
Baby is the size of a Plum!
Feeling | Anxious! I've had a bit of anxiety lately just because the further I get into pregnancy, the more real it becomes. Especially with my bump starting to become visible. I find myself getting anxious over knowing the gender so I can start preparing, getting things done around the house because I know my time will be consumed once Baby arrives, etc. I keep reminding myself to settle down and savor each moment because it will be over before I know it!

Workouts | My doctor just cleared me for working out! I'm not comfortable running yet so I'm getting on the elliptical for 30 minutes and then doing a Tone It Up workout. I think it's helping my sleep too.

Weight | I've actually lost 2lbs and you won't hear me complaining! My doc told me it was due to all the energy baby is taking from me and it's normal. She also did say a girl my size (and she called me petite, boy do I love her) should gain about 34lbs during my entire pregnancy. That just blows my mind.

Sleep | Still wonderful thanks to my Bumpnest and working out! Bathroom breaks have increased to 2-3 times a night and I could obviously do without that!

Body Changes | Baby is starting to poke out and people are noticing! Although it's hard to tell in most outfits, when I wear a tighter shirt, baby Mills likes to make an appearance. Jon even mentioned my hand gravitates towards my belly now and rests there subconsciously.

Appetite | Let the weird cravings begin. The other night around 10pm I shot up in bed and demanded that Jon get me two pickles, banana peppers and goat cheese crumbles. It was delicious! He found it so comical he took a picture and when I saw it the next day I was so grossed out! I couldn't believe I craved that and much less ate it! Weird how you can crave something and see it the next day and it's disgusting!

Fun Fact | All of the baby's body parts have formed, now baby is just maturing and growing in size while also learning to use it's digestive system. Crazy!

Best Moment of The Week | We heard baby's heartbeat and tears flowed from my eyes. It was sweeter than any sound I've ever heard. My heart fell in love all over again! Oh, also friends and family touching my belly!
