Baby Pegg Update: 12 Weeks

I mentioned not too long ago that my best friend, Marcie, is pregnant with her first baby and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Seeing as I didn’t have the blog up & running during either of my pregnancies and Marcie doesn’t have a blog, I’m going to document this pregnancy for her. Marcie has another friend who bought her some of those cute monthly stickers for belly shots & they started at 12 weeks, so the story begins.
The 12 week update
(really almost 15 weeks now but Marcie being pregnant & fond of naps didn’t send me the picture until now when I finally hounded her for it)
How Far Along: 14 weeks and 6 days
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 7ish pounds
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants (thank God for those elastic waistbands!), a belly band with some clothes, and mixture of maternity shirts and regular shirts
Best Moment thus far: 8 week ultrasound when they saw the heartbeat

Gender: She had a dream that it’s a boy! & she, her mother and I all think it’s a boy as well so we’ll all be extremely shocked if it’s not!

Movement: Not yet

Food Craving: Sour candy & pickles (all the time) random candied pecans (that I made her a few weeks ago per her request), fruity pebbly cookies (that another friend makes), sweets!

What I miss: Lunch meat sandwiches

Sleep: Still wake up a lot to go to the bathroom or because of being uncomfortable, not a side sleeper so it’s hard getting used to

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what it is

Belly Button: In

Symptoms: The nausea has subsided (FINALLY!) but now some lower back pain. Her husband says she’s lost her mind & cannot remember a single thing (which is not normal for her at all)

The Baby Center 12 Week Stats (I totally downloaded the app to my phone & put in her info so I can keep up with what’s going on with Baby Pegg’s growth week to week!): From crown to rump, the baby is measuring just over two inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs about half and ounce. This week’s major developments are reflexes and the beginning stages of the kidney functions.
