(Tuesday May 20, 2014 to Monday May 26, 2014)
After my 12 weeks ultrasound they told me I had one day more that was done so my due date is no longer Dec 3 but now Dec 2, 2014, so I started week 12 one day earlier, hehe)
28 to go.. 🙂
Baby is :
Baby is the size of a LIME
I had my 12 weeks ultrasound on May 20 (on my 27th birthday, yeah!) and they told me that they were sure that Axel was…. A GIRL! I don’t get too excited I will wait for the 20 weeks ultrasound to be 100% sure, but the lady was super sure and we saw the tree little lines that you have to see on an ultrasound to know it’s a girl.. well well.. I cannot wait to be 20 weeks, haha. But for now, I will use ”she” for Axel.
During week 12, Axel is now the size of a lime. Her reflexes are starting this week. Axel’s fingers will soon begin to open and close, her toes will curl, her eye muscles will clench, and her mouth will make sucking movements. She is moving a lot, even if I cannot feel real kicks for now. Yesterday I felt like waves and I know it’s her.. after all, it’s not my first child, it’s my third so I’m kind of used to the feeling. Awwwwww I cannot wait to start feeling big strong kicks!
How I’m Feeling:
I’m feeling WONDERFUL! (Ok not physically, but mentally, hehe) I was so excited to have my 2nd ultrasound and to learn that everything is perfect. You know pregnant ladies are always stressed about everything! When I got pregnant I chose the godmother (it’s a good friend of mine and it’s also my son’s godmother) she was super excited. Yesterday I asked another very good friend of mine to be the other godmother (Axel will have 2 godmother instead of one godmother and one godfather) and she was so happy, she almost cried! I’m glad both of my friends are happy! I know I made the right choices 🙂
How I’m Changing:
The belly is still the same, in fact the other day I was saying to my husband that I look like if I had lost belly instead of gaining some.. we’ll see that on tomorrow’s 13 weeks picture. But hey it would be normal, I’m loosing weight instead of gaining some.
What I’m Eating/What I’m NOT Eating:
Oh damn, this week.. ”all day sickness” started all over again. I thought it was over.. oh noooooooooo, it was not! So during week 12 I was sick as Hell. At least I know it’s for a good cause (the baby I mean) not like I wasn’t pregnant and always sick, haha.
So eating is hard once again… I eat less than my 3 years old big girl.. I cannot eat a lot of things otherwise it’s sure I’ll be sick. I still can’t smell coffee, greasy food, spicy food, too hot food, peanut butter without vomiting like crazy. I made a bread the other day and I just ate one bite and I was sick 2 seconds after.. and the bread was super normal. It’s not easy being that sick, pfff!
Total Weight Gained:
Nothing yet.. I have a very noticeable belly but on a scale I’m -1.5 pounds.. So I’m loosing elsewhere to have a belly, hehe.
since I’m always sick again, I cannot do much, so I go outside to have long walks with the kids, I work on the garden, I do the lawn mower…
Prenatal Care :
I had my 12 weeks ultrasound. Baby Axel is doing wonderful! Top shape! It was so awesome to see her move like that, she was doing tons of back flips, she was kind of dancing, even roll on her head, hahaha! The lady was laughing telling us that we have a VERY active baby, hahahah! I was so glad to see my little sweetheart in 3D, I love her so much!
With that ultrasound I was finally 12 weeks not 11 weeks 6 days.. so I have a new due date. We heard a very strong heartbeat after 2 seconds of looking for it, everything was super normal. Like I said previously, the lady is sure it’s a girl.. Can’t wait to be 100% sure to start making the room. (Awww I’m such a baby on that, haha)
My next appointment is May 27, so at 13 weeks.
(Awwww they did mistakes in my name.. pfffff!!! there is no i in Celyna.. and Hoffman is with an H.. pff, haha)
Like week 11, I wake up just to drink tons of water! and because I’m sweating because it’s too hot.
See you next week!
