My Funny Valentine and 12 Weeks

Yesterday way Valentine's Day.  I'm generally not a fan because there is too much pressure put on it and people feel like they have to scramble to prove how much they love their significant other.  I wasn't expecting anything, but I did wake up to a cute little rose bush and some handmade cards from my two favorite guys.

Andrew's card is currently on my wall at work so I can look at his scribbly nonsense throughout the day.  And my little rosebush is on my windowsill here until it gets warm enough for us to plant it outside.  I know most women might prefer a big bouquet of roses, but I love that I'll have these little guys for a long time growing on our porch.

I tried getting a picture of my little munchkin with his Valentine bear, but he was being a big goofball, so this is the best I could do:

Love that kid so damn much!

Anyway, on to my weekly update...

How far along? 12w0d and the size of a plum.  2.1 inches and almost half an ounce.  Capable of opening and closing it's hands and curling it's toes.

Weight loss/gain:  It appeared to be +6 lbs this morning, but I haven't gone to the bathroom in days.  I'm checking into probiotics this weekend.

Maternity clothes: Nope - my regular clothes fit just fine.

Symptoms:  I'm tired and can't poop.

Sex (of baby):  We could possibly know this next week if I get the results of my test back.  I really don't have a feeling one way or the other yet.

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well with one or two wakeups to pee.

Best moment this week? Not much going on at this point.

Movement: Nope.  S/he may be moving in there but I won't feel it for a while.

Food cravings:  Sweets.  Cheap valentine's candy is going to be my downfall.

Belly button in or out?  In

What I miss?  Not feeling so gross.

What I'm looking forward to?  Getting the results from my test and (hopefully) finding out that s/he is healthy.

Milestones:  Inching closer to 2nd tri.

What I'm nervous about:  I'm back to "How the $&#@ are we going to handle two kids?!?"

Yes, I decided to face the opposite direction this week - it seemed more flattering.  Still nothing to see except a little extra thickness in the midsection.


  1. Love your Valentine card. So cute. I am just starting to get tummy issues and it is no fun. Mostly I just feel soo bloated all the time! I love your hair!

  2. As always, you look adorable! Congrats on the pregnancy! XOXO
