12 weeks

i've seen some other bloggers answer these questions to keep track of pregnancy info (and remember it. seriously, pregnancy brain. the struggle is real.) ... so i decided to do the same - and i added a diabetes-related question of course :) 

this is 'end of the day' bump ... it grows after meals. for real.
How far along? 12 weeks

Maternity clothes? i have one skirt that i've worn ... stretchy is good right now. it won't be long before i need them officially! 

Stretch marks? no

Sleep: still getting up once just about every night. otherwise it's pretty good. i've had a few random nights where i lie awake for an hour or so - fun times!

Best moment this week: FINALLY sharing the news with extended family and friends! 

Miss anything? sushi.

Movement: can't feel it yet!

Food cravings: yes, but nothing crazy or weird. if i see delicious food while watching TV, i want that food (last week it was pizza).

Anything making you queasy or sick: random things. sometimes grilling beef. and the smell of some colognes/perfumes. and spaghetti sauce gives me heartburn. no more italian.

Gender: we'll find out in about a month

Labor signs: it's way too early for this question.

Symptoms: the usual. first trimester tiredness, body changing and growing, etc.

Belly button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: happy!

Blood sugar: been pretty good! dr. awesome and my nurse practitioner have been keeping a close eye on me and i talk to them weekly (if not more!) and have appointments at their office once a month. the past few nights i've been low every night, so today some more adjustments were made. dr. awesome said the second trimester will be full of the most changes! 

Looking forward to: the next six months :)


  1. I've been a longtime reader and follower, but never commented (that I can recall). Congratulations!!! I am also a type 1 diabetic with an Animas insulin pump who is pregnant (expected baby #2 in the fall!). It's stressful and exhausting (pregnancy and diabetes), but so worth it! Excited to be on this journey with you! :)

    1. thanks so much emily!! congrats to you too :)

  2. Congratulations!! My baby girl will be four weeks old tomorrow. You can absolutely do this. For me, it became the new normalm and I hope it feels that way for you.

    1. thank you!! congrats on your sweet girl :)
