My last update should have been my 12 week update, but after my prenatal visit the midwife and I determined that I was really only around 10 1/2 weeks or so at that time. So now, on with the real 12 week update!
Due date: June 30th
How far along: 12 weeks, 3 days
Next appointment: January
Total weight gain/loss: At least a 10 lb loss so far due to hyperemesis gravidarum.
Exercise: Walking and stretching with the kids since the weather was mild. But now it’s too cold outside.
Stretch marks: This is my fifth kid, what do you think?!
Maternity clothes: Out for the comfort of them, but I live in sweatpants anyway. 😉
Belly button: Too early for that
Sleep: Not enough. I’ve been really exhausted lately.
Food cravings: Anything with protein…lots of peanut butter!
Symptoms: Extreme exhaustion. The hyperemesis seems to be letting up this week. *knock on wood* My breast milk has also changed quite a bit and Hallie is having a hard time adjusting to that.
Movement: I swear I’ve felt a couple of flutters here and there.
Labor signs: Too early for that.
What I miss: Having more energy.
What I’m loving: NOT getting sick to my stomach all day long.
What I’m looking forward to: Enjoying Christmas next week!
Best moment this week: The Unisom solving most of my hyperemesis issues. Again… *knock on wood*
