Week 12 Bumpdate - 1/3 of the way there!

I can't believe that I'm writing my week 12 bumpdate already and I'm starting to have a little bump of my own!  It was really hard for me to take a bump photo this soon because I was not what I would call skinny before finding out I was pregnant, but hey that's life.  Things never happen the way you expect or at least that's been the story of my life!
  • How far along? 12 weeks and 1 day
  • How big is baby? According to my What to Expect App, the baby is as big as a large plum and about 2.5 inches long.
  • Weight gain? I think its safe to say that I've gained some weight at this point, but I won't know till Wednesday when I go to the doctor.  
  • Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing some and relying on the belly band for my dress pants that are getting a little snug.  My mom and I went to Joann Fabrics over the weekend and bought a few maternity patterns and some fabric to make some clothes which I'm super excited about.  I have four more patterns on the way from Etsy!
  • Sleep: I haven't been sleeping as well the last few days and haven't been nearly as tired.  We've been having lots of storms and rain and a few weeks ago I could sleep through them, this week, not so much.
  • Cravings: Mozzarella sticks, french onion sunchips, cheese pizza, steak, sparkling water and really cold ice water.
  • Food Aversions: Eggs which I miss so much, hot dogs, lunch meat and pork chops.  I was able to eat chicken several times this week and last!
  • What do I miss: Being able to button my dress pants, sleeping without a sleep bra (which I've never had to do before but the pain is too much to not wear something) and a glass of wine on Friday night.
  • Symptoms: Mood swings have been the major symptom recently as well as trouble concentrating, getting full quickly and peeing a lot.
  • Anything else? I have been feeling a lot better since rolling into the 12th week, my food aversions are not as bad and the foods I don't want are ones I shouldn't be eating anyways.  I've still been pretty crabby and moody, it's really easy to set me off and so many people get on my nerves these days.  I really have to try hard to control myself when I feel the need to freak out. 
I really hate the lower right photo, only because I feel like
 I just look fat and not pregnant.  It could still be some bloat.
Please excuse my scrubby outfit, I was so uncomfortable that day!

You symptoms sound similar to mine! My boobs don't hurt anymore, and I'm definitely WAY less tired. I'm pretty grouchy sometimes too, but try to keep it to a minimum. :) I just started wearing my belly band today... definitely feeling the belly pop out. So cool to be so close together! :)

I think it definitely looks like a baby bump :) Congratulations on surviving the first trimester! I thought second trimester was the best!
