12 Week Pregnancy Update


I had my first ultrasound yesterday so I got to see my baby for the first time. The baby looks healthy with a nice strong heart beat. We also discovered that Joshua's dream of having 2 baby brothers will not come true this pregnancy. Since the beginning he has been telling everyone that there are two brothers in Mommy's tummy. The ultrasound showed that my due date of September 24 was about right. Morning sickness has been a little tougher this time around but I finally figured out how to manage it. As long as I eat a small meal every 2-3 hours I am okay. I can't believe that I'm already at 12 weeks. So far instead of gaining weight I have lost 1 pound off my pre-pregnancy weight. So much for gaining 2 to 5 pounds during my first trimester. I also learned that I have to eat more iron and omega 3 in my diet. I've always known I was border line anemic but I've never been very good at getting iron in my diet. Now I also need to get omega 3s in my diet. If anyone as got any good ideas let me know!

If you add a little flax seed to your cereal or yogurt or pretty much anything, it adds some great Omega's to your diet. Plus, it has a nice nutty taste, so it's not totally disgusting! Good luck!
