Week 12 Recap

How Far Along? 12 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss? +6lbs
Maternity Clothes: Nope, still in the regular clothes, but nothing tight around the belly and no cute form fitting tshirts anymore. Still not showing. Using the rubberband trick with my pants or leaving them unbuttoned. Feel fuller through my hips and thighs as well.
Sleep? Still loving sleep, but no longer need naps. However, Chicken was home this week and we both slept for about 12 hours at a stretch every night this week. It was AWESOME.
Best Moment of the Week? The telling of the parents in person and the world on Facebook.
Movement: None here and the burps have really decreased. Now I just burp when I'm hungry. It's like a warning bell.
Food Craving: No real cravings, but pizza and pasta always sound good.
Food Aversions: Chicken (the food) has not sounded or tasted good since I got pregnant. This continues. Weird, cuz I used to really love chicken.
Morning sickness? None
Gender: We had the chance to find out...possibly....but we are not finding out. We're pretty sure they are babies and not puppies or kittens so that's all that really matters.
Labor Signs: No, thank God
Belly Button: Still there.
What I miss: Getting massages from our Chinese magic handed ladies. Chicken goes or talks about going every weekend and I am so jealous.
What I'm looking forward to: The last week of the 1st trimester!!!
Weekly Wisdom: Swimming Rules.
Milestones: Seeing Pat Benatar and Blondie play at Coney Island. Babies Likey.
Having the last of my bloodwork done at NYU and being officially released from their program.

Isn't it amazing how fast time goes? I can't believe you are already 12 weeks! Congrats. I am so jealous you have had no m/s and isn't it funny how different foods affect different people. I could only eat chicken and any red meat was totally off limits until about 16-17 weeks. Crazy.
