How far along? 12 weeks 1 day
Baby's size and stats? 2.5 inches long. .5 oz. Fingerprints are fully formed and baby learns to swallow this week.
Gain? Not quite sure. Yesterday's appointment shows I lost 3 pounds since pre-pregnancy appt.
Sleep? I wake up almost every other hour to pee!! I take many naps when I can these days....when I get home from work, when I am home on the weekends and any time in between when I can.
Foods I am/ am not loving? Most of my appetite is back now and I can handle mostly anything.
Best moment this week? Hearing baby's heartbeat at the doctor (made it more official than when I hear it at home) and watching my hubby read to the baby ;)
Symptoms/Emotions? Still crying. Alot. I've been having horrible dreams that are all the same theme and I wake up hysterically crying. My oh-so-comforting husband lovingly tells me to go back to sleep and I stay awake for several more hours.
Gender? Well, only two weeks away.....REALLLLLLY thinking boy. Heartbeat has not been over 152 during any of our "peeks".
Names: Ok I'll share our names....
BOY: PATRICK JEFFREY
GIRL: PEIGHTON JUDY
What I'm thankful for: A God who forgives my crazy pregnant lady thoughts, my stumbling during the day (not literally, ha!), and the fact that no matter how much I trust him...I still worry and have irrational fears. Praying I can turn it all over to Him and learn to relax.
Prayer Requests: This week would be a great time to pray for fellow military wives...especially those who are experiencing pregnancy, first-time moms doing it alone, women waiting on their husbands to return, and moms raising children knowing their husbands are never returning.
Weekly Bump: I have not taken my belly pic this week. I feel so bloated though that I look very pregnant and I am a little self-conscience of it.
Good Good Father
