11 Weeks

How Far Along: 11 Weeks

Size of Baby: Baby #3 is the size of a Fig....luckily this week I know what a fig is :) Our baby measures just over 1 1/2 inches long and is almost fully formed!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Didn't weigh myself at all this week, but everything seems about the same. +2

Maternity Clothes: Not wearing any maternity clothes yet, but I am starting to prepare. I get very overwhelmed thinking about being 8 months pregnant in the month of July!!!! Can we say HOT and HUGE! I was shopping at Target this week and I picked up some long and lean tank tops. Even though the words I would use to describe myself this summer will not be long and lean, I thought these tanks would be comfy for the summer time.

Gender: Not finding out until Birthday!....but we are totally feeling (and wanting) GIRL!

Movement: None yet

Sleep: Horrible week of sleep. Pulled out an extra pillow to see if it would help position me comfortably...didn't work! And I feel like our bed is getting smaller and smaller! Luckily, I only had to get up once the entire week to use the bathroom and Zoe has been sleeping in until almost 8!

What I miss: Well, I was missing caffeine last I gave in this week. I had to work late one night (3am late!) and I got a Chai Tea Latte. Let's just say, I no longer miss hurt my stomach so bad I thought I was going to puke the whole night. I miss my general. One more week!

Cravings: It is not necessarily that I am craving anything, but when something sounds good to me....I have to have it! Example....Pancakes this morning! Japanese on Friday! Why can't I crave things I have at home!

Symptoms: I got my first real waves of nausea this week. Nothing I ate seemed to settle. I am definitely starting to feel the weight of my tummy. At work, I am on my feet the whole time and I can feel my stomach weighing me down the longer I stand.

Best Moments this Week: Realizing I am almost to 12 weeks...I am almost to increased energy and almost to a "safe zone" in the pregnancy! I scheduled my next appointment for Wednesday!

I was the same way with the cravings. I never craved anything at home, and I finally realized it was because I knew I was too tired to crave something at home to cook, so it was easier to go out to eat for it! Ha!!! I ended up craving Mother's Circus Cookies at the end though. Man, I think I might have to get me some of those today!

Try a fruit in the morning right when you wake up if you feel sick in the morning.
I hope you have all good news on Wednesday!
