Things I've been experiencing this week: A little more sleepy than usual and headaches
Showing? Just bloating still. My bloat bump always looks the same!
Size of baby: Large plum
12 weeks today!!! We woke up this morning and got the doppler out and sure enough there was Baby O with a fast heartrate 162-170. According to our baby go-to website, the baby is about the size of a large plum today. I am a little confused by this because last week it said baby was the size of a lime and isn't a lime bigger than a plum?? Oh well :) It also said baby is opening and closing his/her fist, curling toes, sucking, and can hiccup. All the major organs are developed, just needing now to grow.
In other parts of our lives, we have officially started our 4 day weekend. YAY. I think we are going to see The Vow tonight, family party tomorrow, then just relaxing. We have been dying to get the dogs out of the house to run around but our dog park has been closed since January. It's supposed to open back up March 2nd so we are really looking forward to that.
Also, I found these brownies last week on Pinterest and ever since Tony has been drooling over this picture. So I will be attempting to make these this weekend. We don't have mini muffin pans so hopefully our regular pans will work. You can find the recipe here http://www.bakedperfection.com/2009/07/peanut-butter-cup-brownies.html
