11 Weeks


How far along: 11 weeks

How big is baby?: The size of a lime this week.
Total weight gain: I think I gained a pound this week. It's hard to tell because my weight fluctuates so much throughout the day (no joke I can weigh 5 pounds more at night than I did in the morning and then the next morning be down to my pre-pregnancy weight again... so weird) but it seems like I keep going back to 1 pound heavier than I was before.
Maternity clothes: Nopes, In fact I think I'm over that first bloat phase because all week my dress pants, which haven't fit for about 3 weeks, suddenly can zip and button- a major accomplishment. I still feel like my belly is bigger, but it's been really nice being able to wear my clothes again without modifying.
Best moment of the week: Starting to feel better, it felt like my morning sickness was never going to end, but now (knock on wood) it seems to be subsiding-I wrote this too early. I wrote this on Friday, but Saturday I felt awful again ::sigh::

Food cravings: The usual: carbs, mac and cheese... you know, all that unhealthy crap that the alien doesn't really need but that makes me feel oh-so-good :)

Food aversions: Still not loving meat. Chicken still sounds really gross to me. Some food smells will just really make me feel sick, but I'm not hating food as much as I was.

Symptoms: TIRED! All day every day. I sleep a lot more than I used to, but it just never feels like enough. I've also had some cervix pain which my research shows is probably due to overdoing it. Makes sense because the days I've had it our days that were really crazy and I was on my feet all day. I still have a little nausea, but it's no where near the level it was before. My only other symptom right now is that my stomach just hurts sometimes. It's not nausea and it's not when I'm hungry... it's kind of like when you have the flu and it just aches and feels crappy.
Movement: We're weeks away from that!

Gender: Can't know for awhile, but we're definitely going to find out.

What I'm looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat at the next appointment and entering the 2nd trimester.I'm already feeling so much better, hopefully as I get closer to 13 weeks I will feel even better.

What I miss: Being able to skip meals... I know that sounds weird, but sometimes I just don't feel like eating. In the past I would just wait and eat later, when I felt like it. If I go more than 2 hours without eating these days I start to feel really sick and nauseous

Next appointment: December 29th, Merry Christmas to me :)


  1. Wishing you and your growing family a very Merry Christmas!!

  2. Ahhh... all of this sounds SO familiar lol. The second trimester is the best part but a lot of those pesky symptoms come back at the end which is exactly where I'm at right now. Congrats on your pregnancy and remember to soak in every moment of it. :)
