#2 at 12 Weeks

Technically I won't be 12 weeks until Friday but Eli's taking a nap so why not update a little early?

How far along: 12 Weeks
Size of baby: According to "What to Expect When You're Expecting," #2 is about the size of a large plum.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: -10, don't worry once that 2nd trimester is in full swing it will come back! 
Maternity Clothes: I did wear a maternity dress to a wedding this weekend because I needed one dress to wear to two weddings (one, last weekend and the other is in December).
Gender: We'll probably find out sometime in December.  But if we are comparing pregnancies I am a lot sicker this time around so it might be a girl.
Movement: Nope
Sleep: Once I fall asleep it is GOOD sleep!
What I miss:  Being able to stay fully awake all day long.  When the afternoon rolls around I am exausted!
Cravings: Those .99 chicken sandwiches at Wendy's are quite tasty these days.  Last time around I couldn't stand chicken but this time it's okay.
Symptoms: VERY sleepy in the afternoons! I get more sick with this one that I did with Eli too.
Best moment this week:  Hearing #2's heartbeat!  152 beats per minute--music to my ears!
What's happening next: December 1st is our next doctor's appt.

How exciting!! :) Do you remember what Eli's heartbeat was? I hope you start feeling better in the 2nd Trimester!

Eli's first heart rate was 160 bpm. His was always fast.
