Baby No. 2 {12 weeks}

how far along? 12 weeks
how are you measuring? Right on track.  I was measuring one day ahead in my sono. 
size of baby? size of a lime
heartbeat? 188 bpm (at our 9 week sono)
total weight gain/loss? -1.0 lb
maternity clothes? My regular clothes are fitting fine, but my workout clothes are feeling a little snug.  I'm not sure if that's because I'm growing because of the baby or because I still haven't worked out.  That's now 3 weeks without working out.  I need to get my booty in gear, I'm just soooooooo tired. 
stretch marks? No new ones. 
sleep?  I'm only getting up once a night to go to the bathroom. I feel like I'm not going as much as I did with Pearson because I'm not drinking as much water.  I really need to force myself to drink more, even if that means more trips to the bathroom. I slept a little restlessly this week, but I don't think it's because of the baby. I've been on edge waiting to hear if Matt got a new job or not.  (update on monday: he got the job!!)
best moment this week?  When we ask Pearson where the baby he is actually started pointing to my belly and says "Mommy's baby".  But then he points to his belly and says "Pearson's baby" and then he points to Daddy's belly and says "Daddy's baby".  We all have babies in our belly according to Pearson and it's the cutest thing ever!!
movement? I keep think I'm feeling it but I have had really bad gas lately so it's actually that.  I'm so excited that I will be feeling him or her soon. 
food cravings? Nothing new or crazy!
gender predictions? This week when I've been talking about the baby I have been saying "him".  I don't know if that's because I'm thinking it's a boy or if that's just what I'm used to saying because I already have boy.  Six more weeks until we find out though!!
what i miss? Working out. I meant to work out this week but I napped instead.  This little baby is seriously sucking the life out of me.  
what i'm looking forward to? Nesting! I can't wait until I get all my energy back.  I've got a schedule for how I'm going to clean out every room in my house when I finally get some energy.  I'm doing some major cleaning out before this baby comes, but I've gotta have the energy to do it before I get started!!
how are you feeling? Other than a gassy tummy in the evenings, I'm really feeling great.  Of course I'm dog tired, but feeling great. I not feeling nauseous much at all lately.  First thing in the morning I feel sick unless I get something to eat really quick.  Food or even orange juice does the trick every time!!
comparisons to last pregnancy? Ugh, gas.  This was probably my worst pregnancy symptom with Pearson.  It's different with this baby, but it's gas none the less and it's no fun. 

Here I am 12 weeks with Pearson and 12 weeks with Baby No. 2.

Looking good! Don't worry about working out, it's over rated!;)

you look great!
I have been taking some side angle photos of me, and I'll have to post them in a couple days! I don't feel very big though, so I forget that I'm pregnant sometimes. I am starting to feel kicks though!
