12 Weeks-Energy is BACK!

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
Bump Watch:

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!



    I can’t wait to see the whole finished room! Going to be sooo adorable!


    you are adorable… and yes there is a difference between the two pictures!

    you are a crafty one!! the stocking turned out wonderfully 🙂 i can’t wait to see how the rest of the room turns out!

    Seriously Shawn

    You’re adorable and I cannot wait to see the finished nursery. Glad, your feeling better!


    Can’t wait to see the room when it’s finished!

    So sorry to hear about your morning sickness; hopefully this is almost all behind you! XOXO


    I’m so glad you’re feeling better! I can see a difference in the bump. 🙂
    Also that stocking is amazing. I can’t wait to see the room when it’s done!


    LOOK at your little baby bump!! I LOVE baby bumps!

    Can’t wait to see the finished mural and Roo’s room as it comes together!


    Definitely a difference- look at your shirt it goes more straight down from the top now- I.e. your boobs don’t look as big as the stomach is gaining 🙂
    And here’s hoping that is the end of your morning sickness


    Oh and we all have the same style stockings! 🙂


    You are so on it! My goal last year was to make us stockings and here we are this year and there are still no stockings! Can you please tell me how you did that?

    You are such a cute preggo! I love your bump.

Your comments make my day!
