:: 12 ::

12 weeks 12 weeks

So, apparently I'm not out of the first trimester yet.  YET.  Almost there!!  I read today that week 13 is the last week of the first trimester.  Huh.  Learned something new.

Yeah, 12 weeks.  Still not much of an appetite, especially for *shudder* meat.  Still loving: fruit, fruit, cereal, sweets, fruit, veggies, oh, and fruit.  I tried eating a string cheese today.  Uuuugh.  I got it down, though.  I know I need that protein, especially since I haven't been eating meat.  I ate part of a chicken sandwich on Sunday and felt pretty darn proud of myself.  Anyway, I'm feeling pretty good.  I'm ready for this tiredness to be gone!  I'm definitely showing earlier this time -- need to find some new maternity clothes!

anyway,

Baby:

- reflexes

- fingers and toes curl and uncurl

- will squirm if prodded (can't really feel it every time)

- nerve cells multiplying rapidly

- ears and eyes have moved to where they should be

- baby is about 2 inches long (about the size of a small lime)

- weighs half an ounce

Me:

- heartburn has started

- back still hurts.  always.

- can feel baby move if i'm still

- tiiiiiiiired

- still not a big appetite

It's Friday and we're heading out to go camping for a few days.  Pray they lift our burn ban today!  We must have fire so I don't freeze!

My family left yesterday and it was sad to see them go.  Thank you, mom, for cleaning my carpets and my house and for being so wonderful!  Love you...
