12w update

How far along? 12w

Total weight gain
: gained back 2; down 4 for pregnancy

clothes? only as desired, but not always necessary.

: The medicine I'm on for my chest congeston and pneumonia has Codene in it; combined with my BP meds and Tylenol PM, I'm barely coherent after 9 pm.

Best moment this week
: hearing Chicklet's healthy, steady 154 bmp heartbeat on doppler.

: Nope.

: Well, some surprising news this week has me unsure of both my gut and my heart's desire.  I found out that my youngest brother and his finacee will make me an aunt just 6 weeks after Chicklet is born.  I'd like our babies to be opposite gender, for reasons I haven't analyzed, and he really, really wants a boy, so.....I want a girl?  I dunno.

Labor Signs:

Belly Button in or out?

What I miss
: My appetite.  About two or three bites into a meal, I'm done.  We're eating a LOT of leftovers around here lately.

What I am looking forward to
: Going public with the pregnancy.  Only 5 1/2 more weeks til the big announcement.

Weekly Wisdom
: Rest when Chicklet's Brother rest. The laundry will get done eventually, but there is only so much longer that I can take advantage of afternoon naps.

: First heart tones on doppler.  Relief.  The last time a doppler was set to my abdomen, it was silent.
