12 weeks

How far along: 12 weeks
Next appointment: Beginning of Oct
Any new aches/pains: I'm dealing with the pain from my wisdom tooth with the pain meds and I don't think it's helping the nausea. I'm getting sick every morning. 
Maternity clothes: Yep, shirts.
Sleep: I was only about to sleep for about 8 hours at night and I would take a nap or two during the day. Sleep is getting a little bit better.
Best moment this week: I got to hear the little one's heartbeat. I know I already said it but it's the best sound ever! 
Movement: I've felt a little twitch here and there but nothing for sure. 
Food cravings: As of today I'm hungry for food but it really hurts to eat. So it's pretty much soups for me. 
Belly button: It looks normal
What I miss: Feeling good and eating food. 
What I’m looking forward to this week: Feeling better!! 


Baby is the size of a plum
The average fetus at 12 weeks is about 2.1 inches long and .49 ounces. 


  • Most of her critical systems are fully formed!

  • She's about to enter the growth and maturation stage, in which her organs and tissues will grow and develop rapidly.

  • She's now developing her reflexes -- if you poke her body, she'll likely move.

  • She's opening and closing her fingers and curling her toes, too.

  • Her brain is developing fast!
