12 weeks-under 200 days to go!

The most dramatic development this week: Reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over two inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
How Far Along: 12 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss: gain 1.0 lbs overall (+.6 this week)

Weekly Wisdom:
The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you - Numbers 6:25

"Food Craving: ...Outback Blooming Onion
Food aversions: fried food"

Craving something fried yet that is your food aversion too, it's classic and so cute. :) You can have your sweet tea too, just in moderation. If you look up the actual amount of caffine you can safely have, it's surprisingly high. I would have 1 glass of tea a day and that's it. And definitely keep up with the seafood in small portions because the omega 3 fatty acids are so good for the baby's brain development.

Maternity pants are great! I miss mine (but still wear my maternity undies at night to sleep, they are too comfy to pack away, lol).

Word of Wisdom: Just say NO to the blooming onion!! lol I was craving one too and had one the other night...first time I'd thrown up since week 12...so I'd say it's not worth it, especially with your aversion to fried foods. But I know how it is once a craving settles in too! Good luck. :)
