Today I am 12 weeks YAY! One more week and I will be in my 2nd trimester. Which I'm
not sure if its a good thing or bad thing. With previous pregnancies that was always my hardest trimester. The reasons why escape me right now but I remember just hating the second trimester and counting days until I was out of it.
Symptoms: Right now nothing tastes good to me and I have no desire to eat. I eat more because I have to rather than eating cause I want to or feel hungry. Nausea was bad the first 10 weeks I threw up more than I have with any pregnancy. By week 10 my nausea had almost left completely and as of yesterday its back with a vengeance. *bleck* Within the last couple of days back pain has started. Prior to now my back would hurt when I was standing too long in one place, like when I was washing dishes, but it would feel better after a few minutes. Now my back just hurts pretty much all the time.
Jellybeans Development: Jellybean is actively rehearsing “breathing” by inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid (umm yuck) to prepare the lungs for future air respiration. The big news is that Jellybean's poop-n-pee factory is now up and running!
Looking Forward To: Right now I have 200+ days to go so I am looking forward to being in the 100's. Also I can't wait until next Thursday when I will be in my 2nd trimester! One down two to go!
Mission Accomplished: Have done wonderfully at remembering my prenatal vitamins. Go me!!
