Baby Update - 12 Weeks

Hello, and yes, I'm still here. I've been sick and decided to not give you a play-by-play of how things are going. I've been very unproductive and so I have nothing to post in the way of craftiness, recipes, etc. My menu lately has consisted of Cinnamon Life cereal three times a day and mango-flavored coconut water - to stay hydrated. This is not a diet I recommend, if you can help it.

Baby is 12 weeks now and growing strong. Of course, Baby is also big for this stage of development. My husband and I are not surprised because we just grow gi-nor-mous babies. (Our first baby was 9 lbs 11 oz despite my not being able to eat any food for nearly the first half of my pregnancy.) We are both 5'5" or less in height. But our 2 1/2 year old daughter wears a 4t. I'll probably be wearing her hand-me-downs before long.

The ultrasound tech was kind enough to give us a 3D pic of the baby "just for fun". Wow!
Bad news: I feel like I've been pregnant for 9 years. Good news: Baby is healthy!

What a great photo! Did they give you any indication on gender or are you guys planning to wait until birth? My u/s tech told me "girl" at my 12w4d ultrasound appointment and she was right! :)

I hope you feel better soon - at least you're past the first trimester!

Oh Diane,

I'm glad that you are hanging in there. And I'm even happier that your little baby is growing so BIG and strong :O)

I think it is great that your little one is so tall!! We grow tall babies in my family... Though my little girl is only in a 3T... She and C could so be good TALL friends!!

Just to ease your mind a bit... I have a soon to be 8 year old niece that is wearing size 14 in Juniors. yep that's right she looks to be the size of a teenagers but with the wild passion and energy of a second grader!!

I think of you often and miss you in blogland!

I think the images are great. I do hope you are doing well, too. I do think H is a little over 5'5" as he is taller than I am, and I used to be 5'5 1/2". Wait, am I shrinking?

Oh Diane, I'm so glad you are still alive and that the baby is growing so well, despite your diet of Cinnamon Life and coconut water!!! I know, I always felt like everyone else's pregnancies flew by, while mine dragged on and on... hang in there, you'll have your beautiful new addition sooner than you think!

Oh my goodness, those are beautiful ultrasound pictures! That 3D is amazing!

I came over to visit your blog from Simple Beauty. It's nice to "meet" you. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
