Weeks 1-12; 1st Trimester

Hello lovelies,

Being pregnant has honeslty been the most beautiful experience for me thus far. Getting to see my baby, feel my baby and just know that my little cupcake is growing strong and healthy makes me so happy. I have loved every minute of being pregnant,  mind you I did have some not so pleasant and/or scary bumps along the way too.

Week by week here are some notes on what baby and I have been going through.

Starting measurements and weight
Waist(smallest part): 25 1/2"
Hips(widest part): 36"

Week One:
Started feeling short of breath, more than usual. I have asthma, but it wasn't from that and I could tell the difference.
Also started feeling as though I had to go to the bathroom more often.

Week Two:
Missed my period and took an at home test two days later. The test was negative, but I couldn't help fight the feeling that I was really pregnant this time.

Week Three:
Went to my doctors for a blood test. Got the results back and they were positive!!

Week Four:
Motion sickness slowly started to kick in.
Any foods that were too sweet or sugary that I usually love, were now making me feel nauseous. Prefer anything salty and/or crunchy.
- so bloated now too!
- migraines were starting
- always hungry

Week Five:
Started spotting dark red, so we went to the ER. They tried to do an ultrasound, but could only see what looked like a yolk sac and weren't sure what was wrong.
The bleeding stopped at the end of the night. The doctor however told me to get another blood test done at my dr.'s and to go for a proper ultrasound with the next couple of days.
- still bloated all the time.
- still had migraines
- always hungry

Week Six:
It was time for my ultrasound and I started to bleed again, this time a lot more. Back to the ER we went (by we I mean my fiance and I). They told me either the placenta seperated or I could have a sub-chorionic hematomma; a blood clot in my uterus.
Had an ultrasound done at the hospital,  but the image wasn't very clear. Saw a tiny gestational sac. Doctor told me to schedule another ultrasound at a proper clinic.
- nausea in the am a few days, but no vomit
- abs were hurting like I did too many crunches.
- motion sickness in the car, especially when hungry
- shortness of breath

Week Seven:
Still bleeding. Had a lot of pain similar to cramping.
Finally got to see our baby at the ultrasound clinic and they were checking for the SCH.
Baby was .3cm long. 
- nausea different times of the day, especially when hungry
- migraines
- tired
- shortness of breath
- a little disoriented at times
- irritable at times
- jeans beginning to feel a bit tight.
- dry lips and skin
- slightly heightened sense of smell
- loosing some appetite;  not always as hungry

Week Eight:
Had another ultrasound at a clinic and baby was at 5.9mm. SCH was confirmed this time.
Bleeding was beginning to slow down over night, but picked up other nights.
- nausea and motion sickness
- tired all of the time
- dry lips and skin still
- started to vomit after breakfast 3 days in a row. Thought could be due to prenatals.
- cannot stand to look at raw meats
- still bleeding

Week Nine:
- waist size getting a bit bigger. Now at 26 6/8"
- started to notice a teeny tiny bump!
- nausea
- threw up again one morning
- starting to get some of my appetite back
- motion sickness in the car
- still bleeding

Week Ten:
- motion sickness at night
- tired all of the time
- shortness of breath
- bad cramping from the bleeding and some pain when trying to bend

Week Eleven:
- still bleeding
- had another ultrasound. I think baby was asleep, wasn't very active, but still moving.
- threw up again on an empty stomach after taking my prenatal vitamin.
- motion sickness
- light headed at times
- shortness of breath

Waist: 27 3/8"
Hips: 36 1/2"
Belly: 33 2/8"

Week Twelve:
- I can no longer button my jeans. I need an elastic wrapped around the button to secure them, on my biggest pair!!!
Now caught in only leggings! :(
- popped a bit and have a little baby bump!! Did a photoshoot with my fiancé of my belly.
- bleeding slowing down during the day, but heavy overnight.

So that is a recap of my first twelve weeks of pregnancy!!!! I cannot believe how fast everything is moving.
I plan to do my next post hopefully by the end of the week, recapping weeks 13- 20 (where I am now).
I will also keep on doing random posts inbetween. Let me know what you want to see!!

Thanks so much for reading and check out the bottom of the post for belly pics through out my first twelve weeks!!!!

Until next time..
