Weekly Pregnancy Update: Week 12 Big News!

Posted by: Maggie

Okay so we didn’t get around to taking a photo this week. We had a busy weekend and this week the baby is the size of a plum, and plums are not in season, and we didn’t have any other food in the house that is plum sized. I know, excuses, excuses. But I do have something even better than photos of me! Photos of the Baby!

The Week in Pregnant
We had a 12 week ultrasound on Tuesday. The doctor said that everything is looking great. It is a real baby in there, not some sort of alien creature. So that was good news. And we found out that we are having a BOY! Which is just crazy and a little unexpected. Neither of us have any idea what to do with a boy! So that will be all new and exciting and and we’ll have no use for most of Eleanor’s clothes and things that we saved.

Aside from that I’ve been feeling mostly okay. I had a migraine that lasted two days and I was up sick and throwing up all night both of those days, so that was super fun. And then just as that ended I had two bad nights of sciatic pain that kept me from sleeping again. So, I’m exhausted as usual, but feeling better again. Hopefully this week will be better.

Cravings of the Week

None actually, I was feeling so bad that food has just not sounded very appetizing.

Tears of the Week

I was actually having a surprisingly, unemotional week. Maybe I was just feeling too sick to feel weepy too.

Baby Brain Moments of the Week

I sat and stared at the computer for like 5 minutes the other day, trying to remember what I needed to do. Not a good work day.

If you missed them:


  1. yay for boys!! I wouldn’t have the slightest idea what to do with a girl :)
    Can’t wait to hear name choices :)

  2. Thanks!

    We’re pretty sure we only know how to raise a hugely nerdy boy. But we’ll see!

    Boys names are the hardest! We already had girl names picked out and now we are struggling over boy names! They are all either obnoxious, trendy, or way too common. We are having a super hard time finding names to add to our list of possibilities!

  4. Thanks Nate!

    Congrats! Boys are great! Here are some boy names we considered with our second but then found we were having a girl.

    Oliver, Flynn, Williem, Parker, etc

  6. Oooh! Thanks for the suggestions Kristin! Those are some good ones!

  7. Kristy 

    What?! Already?! How exciting! I know how you feel about raising a boy and boy names…I am terrified of raising a boy. We shall see! I like the names your friend posted. Unfortunately, Oliver is getting popular, which is why we scratched it!

  8. I know it! It seems like a lot of the good boy names are already really popular!

    Maybe you guys will have a boy, and you’ll at least be a few months ahead to warn us about boy stuff!

    YAY!! I’m so happy for you.

    I would be absolutely zero help in the name category. This is because “Keegan” has always been my dream little boy name :)

  10. Christina 

    A boy!!! Awesome. Can’t wait to see Eleanor be a big sister to the little Keegan Gross man. Thanks for sharing and hope all these crappy preggo symptoms disappear soon.

  11. Hahahaha! Keegan Keegan Gross! I like it!

  12. Thanks! I have my fingers crossed that the second trimester will be way better!

  13. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This article posted at this site is actually nice.
