Better late than never (12 weeks)

How far along? 12 weeks 3 days

Due Date: August 2nd

Total weight gain/loss: -1 pound

Maternity clothes? Just bought my first maternity clothes this week.  Picked up a GREAT pair of Gap maternity jeans 40% off and they are my heaven.  I had a few gift cards to Motherhood, as well, so I bought some shirts and a dress too even though I really don't need those yet.

Stretch Marks? Nope and I'm hoping to avoid these.

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good minus the 3-5 bathroom trips and really vivid dreams at night.  I was asleep last night at 6:30 pm and slept til 8:30 am.  YIKES!

Best moment this week: My nausea is almost completely GONE!

Movement: Still too early for this yet.

Food cravings: Food in general now that I'm not as nauseated.

Food aversions: Still chicken, although I was able to eat some in some stir-fry my mom made the other night and I had no problems.
Gender: We won't know for about 6 more weeks.

Labor Signs: None, and let's keep it that way for a long while.

Belly Button in or out? Still in, of course.

What I miss: Feeling like I have a bunch of energy on my days off to get lots of things done.

What I am looking forward to: My 2nd's right around the corner!!!!!
Milestones: 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.  Meanwhile, 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. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
