We are 12 weeks today!! I remember when I first found out I was pregnant, I could not wait until I hit 12 weeks. According to the doctor I am in my 2nd trimester. According to everything else I've read, I will be in my 2nd trimester at the end of the 12th week. Either way, WOW, I can't believe I am already in or near the 2nd tri. I still am having morning sickness. I think it's getting a little less intense, but on the days I have it it is horrible. Even though I still have morning sickness, I am able to eat some normal food again. I even ate mexican and pizza this week. The only other thing that is bothering me right now are my hips. They hurt bad sometimes and I am sure they are getting wider. I think I am going to need to invest in a body pillow soon. Speaking of investing, I did some investing in some very cute spring/summer maternity clothes. My favorite are all of my under the belly capris (see picture), but I also bought some with a panel because I am sure I will need them sooner or later. I'm not into maternity shirts just yet. I have found that the maternity looking tops at stores seem to fit great instead of looking funny.
