This mural is so much more fun to look at than a blank wall. Heidi: I literally feel like we are in a playhouse. -Spencer, The Hills
How Far Along: 12 weeks (according to my calendar, hopefully the doc will agree at next ultrasound)
Size of Baby: Plum
Don’t mind me in the second picture. I had just finished painting all day so I was wrecked. I definitely see a difference in the bump, but maybe it’s wishful thinking?
Cravings: anything sweet! I never like junk food cereal but lately I’ve been eating lucky charms like crazy.
Food Aversions: tomatoes and most meats don’t really appeal but I eat them anyways
Symptoms: I didn’t post it, but at 10 weeks I got my first real official case of morning sickness. It was night time, and I was out to dinner with a friend. I had just eaten brushetta, and all of a sudden I felt sick. I dashed to the restroom and I’m pretty sure the tables nearby thought I was bullemic. I’m just lucky I made it. I’ve since felt queasy, but no more actual sickness. I ate soda crackers like it was my job. Luckily about midway through last week the nauseated feelings disappeared! Woohoo!
I’m also a lot more awake and my energy level has gone way up. I’ve managed to finish Roo’s stocking:
and I’m almost done with the tree mural! I’ll give you a tiny sneak peek. Match drew out the sketch freehand. That man is amazing! Then I did the painting. We’re waiting til we find out the gender to do the leaves. I have very different ideas depending on what we’re having.
Next up is the height chart! I’m off to get supplies for that at the craft store. I want something I can move if Roo later decides he or she doesn’t like the chart in their room. I’m so excited to be at the end of this trimester. I will really breathe easier after our next appointment, but I have nothing but good feelings. Hopefully the doc will take me off pelvic rest soon. I haven’t had any spotting in the last few days and I’m feeling great!
