12 Week Baby Bump Print Recipe Print Recipe


I’m a little behind. This is what I looked like at 12 weeks. Hot, uncomfortable, and finally starting to show.

I’m now 14 weeks I believe my belly is almost starting to catch up with my gigantic boobs. I’ll be happy once that day comes.

This whole pregnancy thing is quite the experience. To be honest, from everything I do to how I think, it’s just about the complete opposite of how I use to be. I’m hardly on my computer, I’m present when watching movies, and I eat the foods my body is asking for, which are foods I would never have eaten. All that, I feel more at peace that I ever have. It seems this baby is already changing my life.



What am I eating?

  • Chicken nuggets. Organic, gluten-free, & white meat. Thank you Whole Foods.
  • GF Bagels and [laughing cow] cream cheese
  • Quesadillas. Nothing fancy.
  • Greek yogurt + fresh peaches
  • Peanut or almond butter
  • and drinking iced tea, but has to be iced. It’s my new coffee.



  • Gummi Bears
  • So Delicious <dairy-free> Ice cream and froyo, still.
  • Chocolate chip cookies


note: all my cravings seem to change weekly.


Energy level

It’s getting there. Finally able to go for walks without losing all the color in my face. Major progress.


Struggling with

  • Morning sickness, still.
  • To a stranger, I look more fat vs. pregnant.
  • I got a breast reduction when I was 21 so having them back is mentally challenging.
  • Not sleeping through the night.


Kinda diggin’

  • Daily naps
  • My husband being so awesome and making me waffles on the weekend.
  • Watching my belly grow. It’s so fascinating.
  • Eating food I would never eat. We’re talking NEVER.

    Not sleeping thru the night is nature’s way of getting you ready. Such a curse, I remember it.  Ugh.

    But you are glowing and look fabulous!!

    Aw! I’m 13 weeks and craving froyo ALL the time, which I NEVER cared about before. I’ve been eating cheese like crazy and can barely look at vegetables or coffee, which used to be my absolute staples. Pregnancy is fascinating indeed.
    Love your blog!
