baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

text - 12 weeksI think my stomach has officially shrunk but maybe it’s because the pudge pudge bloat is *starting* to decrease and real baby is starting to emerge!! I was sick the other day and felt scary skinny again so I took a picture lying down like one I had from before when we first found out we were pregnant and sure enough <<somethins changed>> So. Bloat be gone. That’s my answer to this ^^

How far along? 12 weeks

Weight Gained: 5 lbs. Clearly something’s keeping right along..

Symptoms: My face has been oozing (nice) sore-ville lately, thank you acne. I don’t remember telling you you could make your home here. For this I blame the water. Greg and I have been trying to drink it by the gallons and they sayyyyy this will make your skin have a little party but just you wait, it will be glowing in no time. I am waiting. Also, things smell strongly. Also, I am dizzy.

Movement: I felt something again on Saturday! Although I keep reading you won’t be able to feel it until week blah blah blah. But I don’t think they are talking to unemployed women whose sole purpose is spent concentrating intensely on such matters.

Food cravings: Cheeeeeese is still so, so good. Cake has also become my crack. I. Can’t. Stop. Shoveling. It’s scary how little willpower I have these days.

Food aversions: I don’t have much of an interest in things that are actually good for me. I shall now go hang my head in shame. :[

Sleep: Good

Stretch marks? No

Belly button in or out? In

Miss anything? My period. Just kidding.

Mood? Happy

Maternity Clothes? Nada

New baby items: Sorry baby, nothing new this week

Exercise: Eh… it’s in there every once in a while. I do watch lots of exercise videos though, for when I have the energy… while I sit and eat more cake and regret all my life choices.

Best moment of the week: Seeing how beautifullllll our baby is already :D I think we both were kinda thinking it would have, I dunno, disappeared or lost its little heartbeat or something awful but it was so happy and alive in there, kickin away! Happy parents.

Looking forward to: More doctors appointments! I had no idea they could be so fun!

    That’s just the preciousist. AND, you are NOT unemployed. Read Proverbs 31 and see what the Lord thinks of your “unemployment”. Stand fiercely against what the world says is validating, and do your very BEST at the tasks He has gifted you with. I love you Hilly!

    You look absolutely adorable! (sorry to hear you were sick though) Only 5 pounds – wow! I say keep eating WHATEVER sounds good to you, even if it’s cake – you must need the extra energy from the sugar right now. ( Didn’t you say you were sick and then scary-skinny?) Dizzy, acne, strong smells – all hormone related. This too shall pass, I promise! Love you! Cindy
