BumpDate: 12 Weeks


I promise to blog more about things not just baby, but this is about all the energy I have right now.
Oh and So What Wednesday!



What I'm craving?:
 Mexican food, beans, vegetables, protein, less candy attraction this week.

Funny/Memorable Story Of The Week:  Mia is telling everyone that Momma has a baby in her belly and when we are playing house (Mia's always the Mommy and Daddy and I are always the baby) she now has a baby in her belly.  Good thing about playing the baby while playing house, she'll tuck you in on the couch and snug as a bug in a rug because really there is no other way to be tucked in.

Weight Gain: A few ellll beeeees already, but oh well.

Work Out Regimen: Had my doctor's appointment yesterday and things are looking great, so I'm getting back out there.  Slowly, but surely.  I definitely think this will help with my energy level.

What's Different?:  Holy mood swings.  I'm sure I had them with Mia, but they seem much more "moody" this time around.  Yesterday was not a top pick in work days.  My stress level is through the roof right now and sometimes when I get home I just don't want to deal with dinner, dishes, bath, clean up, etc. and the Hubs was just chillaxin' last night like there weren't things to do.  He kept asking me if I was crabby and in a bad mood.  He now cleans out the bathtub after bathtime because it kills my back to bend over (already) and it took everything in my power to go to bed with out the toys being cleaned out and the tub rinsed, but I did it.  I did it, but I wasn't happy about it.  I wish I had his approach about things sometimes.  I really do.  He's still the best nomatterwhat, so he's got that going for him.

Boy or Girl:  The last week I've really felt boy.  Besides my need for meat, mostly red meat and not so much chicken (completely opposite of my pre-pregnant self - I'm a chicken girl).  Several weeks to go yet until we know, but we are finding out so I'm getting more excited for that.

Sleep:  Still pretty good, but not as amazing as last week.  Lots on my mind as we approach the end of the first trimester.  Already.  We'll blink and the holidays will be upon us and then I'll blink again and I'll be in labor.  I swear that's how I feel it's going to be.  Just trying to soak it all in as best I can.

Labor Signs: Ummmm...no thank you.

Movement: Still just some gassy bubbles.

What I Miss:  Still miss energy and with the increased temperatures again, a margarita would be lovely.

What I'm Looking Forward To: The 3 Day Weekend rapidly approaching.  It may become 3 and a 1/2 if I play my cards right.  Need a break yo.

I had a VERY vivid dream last night we had a girl. As vivid as me wanting to call today and schedule the repeat c-section versus trying for a VBAC.

I'm going to have to try that "playing house" technique, but I've got a toddler boy. I think that's not part of the program for him. He'd instead be pulling me up for something more active!

And I'm with ya on the mood swings!
