12 Weeks, October 3-9, 2010
Baby is now the size of a lime, so Kevin tosses me a lime, and I say "this is huge, how would you not feel this kicking around?" Kevin goes, "throw me back our baby."
I was getting sicker and sicker this week with my cold or flu. Sniffling turned to coughing. Dad started getting sick in rehab again so he went back to the hospital. It took the doctors a few days to figure out what was wrong, and Kevin's mom met us at the hospital on Saturday.
I had to review documents at the hospital, but we took a break to take Kevin's mom to lunch and tell her the good news. We gave her a card with a copy of the sonogram. Just like my parents, she cried with happiness.
I felt bad having to leave my dad when he was having another minor surgery the next day, but I had to work the whole weekend. In fact, I even missed most of Kathy's visit, though it was nice of her to have dinner waiting for me when I came home from work.
Milestones: All our parents and grandparents (the baby's great grandparents!) know we're pregnant. Our baby book says the baby's bone marrow is starting to produce white blood cells to fight off infection, and the pituitary gland is producing hormones.
Craving: Apples, granola
Symptoms: Round ligament pain, acid reflux (coughing plus acid reflux means vomiting)
Weight gain: 4 pounds
