My Pregnancy Journal - 12 weeks

pregnancy journalWelcome to the “My Pregnancy Journal” meme, so if you are a pregger blogging mama then you will definitely wanna link up.
It is hosted by Happenings of the Harper Household, 
so head on over there to link up.

 HI EVERYONE, This is the first week of me joining this meme and glad to be here and excited to read everyones' journal through each of your pregnancies.

Just a little background. I'm 28, married and have 2 girlies. My first pregnancy (at 19) was a complicated one and ended in an emergency c-sec. My 2nd (at 25) and developed GD and was ignorant and agreed to a scheduled c-sec. So, now here I am at 28. I wanted to be at a lower weight, but I got preggo at 185 and we found out on New Years Day and at 7 weeks I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, UGH! So, lets continue...

This week MOYASHI (means bean sprout in Japanese) is about the size of a lime and his fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. Nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be.
About me & Moyashi
Symptoms:   This week I have done a bit more walking... just going shopping and doing it FASTER than normal. Cause of that I feel that I have been out of breath more often. After I got back from shopping today, my sister called and I had to stop and take a deep breath while talking to her.
Nausea has slowed down, it was TERRIBLE the past few weeks, I just felt sick all the time. I feel a little better but still just ICKY.
I haven't been diagnosed, but I know I have Dysgeusia (after taste before and after eating ANYTHING) That is so freaking annoying. I think something will satisfy me, but it doesn't. I find that bread, croutons and pastas leave me the worst after taste.
Headache! I guess I figured out that what was causing my headaches (I've had like 3 episodes of horrible headaches) was just caffeine withdrawal. And it did calm down today. (I had a sip of Pepsi today)

Weight Gain: I have been 189 for the past 2 1/2 weeks. So, for me that is good.

Cravings:  I wish I had cravings... anything and everything I think I am craving just makes me feel sick afterwards because of the Dysgeusia.

Food Aversions:  EVERYTHING... I actually don't want to eat anything because I know it won't taste good to me.

What made me cry this week: My headache (I had 2 days ago), I just laid in bed and cried... I did some deep breathing and it kind of went away.

Medical Stuff:  Like I mentioned before. I am condiered obese and I have GDM (Gestational Diabetes Mellitus).

Thoughts from the family: My 3 year old was playing and brought me one of her old bibs for the baby... and she has been giving my belly kisses (gently) a little more, which I think will just increase as my belly grows.
My 7 year old hasn't really given much thought to another sibling I guess... but she's been busy with school testing and stuff.
Hubs... just loves to rub my belly and call the baby "Moyashi" ugh

Something I am excited about this week: Holy cow I'm 3 freaking months! I am excited to hear how my cousins baby shower goes this weekend. My grandmother is going, but we won't be able to go.


  1. So sorry you have GDM.. take it easy and your little sprout will be fine I'm sure.

  2. I want some sprouts -.- you were really out of breathe, you even hung up on me LOL

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
