11 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 11 weeks today. Our baby is finally starting to look like a little human being, rather than an alien, LOL.

Size of baby: The baby weighs about .25 ounces this week, and is about 1.61 inches long (crown to rump)... about the size of a walnut or fig.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not really sure, I haven't weighed recently.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. But I have a feeling they're coming soon.

Gender: We should be able to find out in about 7 weeks. Sometime in mid May. I can't wait. :-)

Movement: Not yet, its still a little too early.

Food Cravings: None yet. Just whatever sounds good at the time.

What I miss: Feeling "normal" (not sick).

Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well. However, I have to get up at least once during the night to go to the bathroom.  Still very tired in the afternoon and evening.

Symptoms: I'm still feeling nauseous off an on, all day long, but its mostly in the evening now.  I do think the nauseous feeling is starting to subside to some degree. I feel very tired in the afternoon and evening. I am having to go to the bathroom a lot more these days.

Best Moment this week: Visiting some friends of ours in the hospital as they welcomed their twin baby girls (fraternal) into the world. I got to hold each of them and they are sooooo cute!! It really got me excited to meet our little peanut in October.

What I am looking forward to: The second trimester, when everyone says I'll start to feel better. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. Appt. on Apr. 12th (my 30th birthday), when we'll get to hear the heartbeat.
