Baby Gift And Belly Pictures

I am 12 Weeks, 5 days today! This is the last week of the first trimester, so from here on out there should be less nausea, less fatigue, and less pickle smells! Can I hear a "Hooray"?

Last week I received my first baby gift! My sweet friend Ashley not only came over to help me with Photoshop last week, she came bearing gifts! She gave me these adorable little baby booties, with a cute little baby clip holding the bag shut!



She said it was a "Getting Pregnant Gift". I thought that was so sweet! We don't know what the baby is yet, but even if it's not a girl this time, I'm trusting that we'll have a sweet baby girl in the future - so I'll get to use these little booties at some point. Thanks Ashley!

Babykins has fingernails and eyelids now. Even though those aren't the most recent developments, I think it's exciting to think about! Reflexes are developing this week, and the baby can start to move it's face more, like scrunching the eyebrows or pursing the lips.

All of the baby's body parts should be present now, and he/she is around three inches long, which is about the length of a large plum. Gracious, that's huge! I can't believe I'm not showing more with a baby that big inside me.

Here are my 12 Week belly pictures!







There's a little bump there, I think! I think it looks like I'm arching my back, but I'm really not trying to - that's about as un-arched as it gets. For all of you pregnant people who posted early belly pictures, I understand them much better now - you weren't trying to arch either. Now it all makes sense.

Still wearing regular clothes, though certain pairs of pants have to be worn with my handy-dandy belly band and a hair tie around the button.

Let's see, symptoms. The heartburn has really been kicking up over the last couple of days. A touch of nausea as well, and my poor tail bone is starting to act up like it did last week. I'll probably have to head back to the chiropractor this week to get it straightened out again, though the stretches he showed me are really helping. I'm also a bit moody, but I'm fighting against it.

Overall, I'm feeling pretty great though! I feel plump and healthy, and happy to have this sweet baby - I feel like all is right with the world.

So cute Callie. :) I can see a little baby bump!! I'm so jealous, actually, that you're not showing much. This is what I looked like at 13 weeks: http://babybesido.blogspot.com/2009/08/13-weeks-1-day-pics.html

I wanted so bad to not be showing because of all the remarks I got!!

Sorry you're having the pains. I guess it comes with the territory, but that doesn't make it any easier. Hope the chiropractor can continue to help you out. :)

You look lovely! I know what you mean about showing... it took me FOREVER to show. Even at 7 months pregnant I just had a modest little bump. I think being tall + having your first makes it like that. You'll be glad of this when you're 39 weeks along! :)

Ashley said...

Hooray! Yay for the second trimester! I hope you get to feeling well soon - that sensitivity to smell and stuff doesn't sound fun at all! As for the pictures, you still look cute and pregnant :)

Lauren said...
