We went to the doctor today because I’m 12 weeks pregnant and it was time for the big checkup. My mom came with us and we got to see the baby again. It was so neat to see how much had changed in just about two weeks. We saw tiny fingers and heard the heart beat again. The doctor stayed away from the lower region of the baby, as we are waiting a few weeks to find out the sex. I want to be sure either way and am looking forward to our next appointment for the details.
In the ultrasound picture, it looked as if baby Chambers was giving us the military salute. I just love watching it change and I’m so appreciate of the many times we’ve been able to see the baby so far.
My pants are definitely snug and some are already hard to button. The look of just being bloated has extended to a full little pooch, but I’m not complaining. I really am enjoying every moment and trying to just look forward to continuing the journey. I think about the baby all the time and find myself rubbing my belly now that it’s protruding a bit.
I’m not craving anything that’s good for me! I’ve eaten Taco Bueno, pizza, ice cream and anything sweet, so it’s like my bad diet 24/7. I am trying to exercise when I have the time and energy, which seems to be hard to find these days. I’m still pretty tired and looking forward to getting my energy level back up. I’ve also been really busy lately and have a lot on my mind. So I find myself having many restless nights, which I’m not a fan of.
All in all, I can’t complain. I’m a lucky girl.
