12 weeks

Wow...I am nearing the end of the 1st trimester. Hard to believe!


How far along: 12 wks

Symptoms: I have been having headaches lately..mostly stress-induced from work...its insane right now. 
I seem to get really hungry in the middle of the night when I wake up, I just fix some chocolate milk and it helps. Speaking of chocolate milk, I introduced Carson to it, and I think he's in love! :)
The heartburn has reared its ugly head again, but I have my trusty Zantac.

Cravings: I have been super thirsty, so I have been drinking a lot more water lately. I have really been wanting some fresh fruit, but have had no time to go to the store to stock up. I was however able to have some great pineapple and grapes at Sweet Tomatoes with my girlfriends..I had pineapple all in my teeth while I was talking...but it was so worth it!

I had an entire text conversation last night with a pregnant friend about food you eat at the county fair and food you get at the movies! I am ready for some buttery popcorn, corn dogs, nachos and cheese, and funnel cakes...mmmmm.  I love pregnancy!

Best moment of the week: I am so excited that I found a new practice that I feel is a better fit for me and what I want for this baby's delivery.  I contacted the local ICAN network and Labor of Love Doula Services and both organizations recommended the same 3 practices! So I made my decision and chose a practice that they recommended and it also has great word of mouth among some good friends of mine. When I called to inquire about joining their practice I asked if a Dr. or Midwife could call and address some questions I had, and within 5 minutes I was speaking to someone who took plenty of time with me and it was so refreshing to have a Dr./Midwife on the same page as me for once.

Challenges this week: Mainly work, and the headaches. I HATE having to cook, so I don't. :) My mom will be making some frozen meals for us soon :)

Belly watch: My butt seems to be growing at the same rate as my belly!
