Week 12 Bump Update!


How far along? 12 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain: I took measurements again this week!  My waist is now 26" and my tummy is 31"!
Maternity clothes? Still haven't bought any yet but I have actively been window shopping online for more...especially pants/jeans.  It's getting more uncomfortable to wear mine with the button closed!
Stretch marks? No new ones although I did see some really faint "translucent" ones on my hips that aren't very noticeable depending on the light.  I think they must have been from when I lost some weight as a teen.  They don't bother me though, I'm still using a concoction of different products!  The Body Shop Cocoa Butter and Mama Mio Tummy Oil are my favourites of the moment!
Sleep: Been having some wacko dreams lately!!  But sleeping well & through the night.  Sometimes it's a little uncomfortable because I'm used to sleeping on my belly but now I always sleep on the left side and it gets a little sore after a while.  But no real complaints.
Best moment this week: Definitely our ultra-sound!  I can't even begin to explain the emotions we both felt when we finally got to see our baby which we had created...it's bizarre.  He/she is so cute :) 
Miss anything? Not at the moment, now that my energy is back and in full force! 
Movement: No, even though we saw the baby move on the screen at the ultra-sound...it was asleep and the nurse had me cough a number of times to wake him/her up and finally it did...I can't believe how much it was moving and yet I could feel nothing, I can't wait to feel it!
Food cravings: Oranges and fruit...that's about it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I still couldn't stomach shrimp/prawns, the coffee aversion seems to have gone away and I enjoy a cup now & then but it's not the same as it was before!  Herbal tea is another thing I've totally gone off.
Gender: We still don't know, and won't till my next scan in April!  That's okay though, I can wait.  But I still have a feeling it's a boy ;)
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Sore boobs (like always), acne, dry flaky skin in patches, weird/vivid dreams.
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, now that my energy's back!
Looking forward to: Nothing really in particular, I think I'm still just excited after the ultra-sound experience...it may take a while to wear off!


Baby Saccone-Joly, measuring right on track!

Stay Stylish!
