12 Weeks!

I have just completed my 12th week of pregnancy! I'm still feeling very tired at times and have had waves of nausea that are really tough to get through. I am eager to go to my next appointment on July 26th.

How your baby's growing:

Your Baby in Week 12 of Pregnancy
By now, your baby weighs a full half-ounce and is about the size of a large plum. Most of his systems are in place, though there's still plenty of maturing to do. For one thing, his fetal digestive system is beginning to practice contraction movements necessary for eating, and his bone marrow is busy making white blood cells — weapons against germs once he's out of your safe haven. The pituitary gland (at the base of the brain) has started producing the hormones that'll enable him (or her) to make babies of his (or her) own in a couple of decades or so.

This is my 12 week picture. I think I just look fat and should maybe not eat as much ice cream as I have been eating :)
