Week 12

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain: Holding steady at 3.7 lbs (I somehow managed to make it through Christmas without gaining!)
Maternity clothes? Still mostly my regular clothes although I've resorted to the rubber band trick ;)
Stretch marks? none yet
Sleep:  Happy to report I am sleeping through the night again!!! The midnight food fest has ceased thanks to my pre-bedtime mini snack.
Best moment this week: Hitting the 12 week mark.  One more week and then see ya later 1st Trimester!!

Miss Anything? Definitely missing my morning cup of coffee...I was substituting with hot chocolate but have learned I am ubber sensitive to caffeine these days so that's out the window too.  Looks like I'm going to have to become a tea person :)
Movement: Nothing yet, although I'm looking forward to it!
Food cravings: still anything salty/savory.  I'm a big fan of  the mailman's steaks and hamburgers and of course my mini bowl of ice cream for dessert
Anything making you queasy or sick: chicken and spray Lysol
Gender:  We got our fetal scan appointment yesterday, 7 more weeks until we find out!

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Pretty much symptom free :) I'm sure that's bound to change so I'm enjoying it while I can.
Belly Button in or out? still an innie
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: Very happy :)
Looking forward to: Our last New Year's Eve before becoming a trio.  Delicious dinner at Kon and  a Bob Marley show, followed by a Resolution Run the next morning with an amazing group of ladies.

Week 11

Week 11
How far along? 11 Weeks
Total weight gain: 3 lbs 
Maternity clothes? still in my regular clothes but they're starting to get a tad bit snug! I have a pair of maternity leggings I would wear every day if I could!
Stretch marks? No, I'm hoping genetics are on my side on this one\
Sleep: Thanks to the greatest invention on earth --> Breathe Right strips...I'm sleeping like a baby despite my head cold....not counting my 2-3 nightly trips to the potty :)
Best moment this week:  Sharing our exciting news with friends and family! There were truly some noteworthy and memorable reactions.  
Miss Anything? Being able to workout like I used to. I'm still running 16-20 miles a week but it sure does take A LOT longer!
Movement: Still a bit early for that yet
Food cravings: While this goes against the very fiber of my being I really want nothing to do with sweets.  Salty and savory is my flavor of choice at the moment.
Anything making you queasy or sick: chicken...gag

Gender: Seems as though the majority of you are guessing girl....stay tuned

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I don't want to jinx myself but it seems my 4 week bout with morning sickness is over! No other symptoms to speak of other than a growing waist and bust line ;) 
Belly Button in or out? still in.  After 16 years I finally removed my belly button ring....I'm officially an adult.

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: What's not to be happy about? Christmas is in THREE DAYS!!!

Looking forward to: Christmas!! Although I'm missing my family far away I'm looking forward to Christmas eve with Stacey and the kids, Christmas day with Breton's, and the Damon family party the day after Christmas.  Throw in a few viewings of A Christmas Vacation and a Christmas Story and you have yourself a perfect holiday season :)
