11 Weeks

Wow, after a little over a week off from blogging I'm ready to jump back in to the blogger world.  Needless to say I've been quite exhausted and extra nauseous this past week.  And to mention chasing a toddler around + working full time.   But, being I'm 11 weeks pregnant I think it's time to start the 'ol so fun pregnancy blog survey.  Plus there's a baby bump starting to make it's presence. 

As I look at that picture, I realize I may just "look fat" right now, but seriously my stomach was fairly flat to start with.  Not to mention this was at the end of the day after my makeup & hair had "had it". 

Pregnancy Highlights:

Size of baby: 1 1/2 inches long and weighs about .3 ounces. He or she is the size of a fig!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Oh my, honestly I am afraid to find out.  I'm thinking around 4 lbs.  Not to mention that before I even realized I was pregnant I went on 2 vacations where I put on around 2 lbs, my plan was to come home and lose that..... oh well!

Maternity Clothes: Not Yet however some things are started to get a bit snugger.

Gender: You guess!  (I'm going to place a poll in the sidebar so be sure and guess)  I'm thinking girl but we will see.  Go vote now!!!

Movement: Not yet (however sometimes I think I might, but nothing for sure yet), hopefully before too much longer.  I felt Maddox early, around 13 wks. And supposively you feel your 2nd sooner than your first.

Food Cravings: Hmm...I haven't had too many.  Mainly it just hits me and thats what I want... The other night I had my mind set on Chinese.  However, everytime something sounds good, the second I start eating it, it starts to make me feel nauseous.  Bummer!  Mainly fruit though. Nothing sweet (unlike the 1st pregnancy). 

What I miss: I miss having lots of energy.  I feel so exhausted.  Plus, I also miss "feeling good".
Sleep: Luckily I have started sleeping pretty good, minus the 2+ bathroom trips a night.  I was really starting to worry during those 1st couple of weeks because I was suffering from some insomnia.  I would wake up in the middle of the night and just lie there because I couldn't go back to sleep for at least an hour. 

Symptoms: Nausea (definitely more than with Maddox), exhaustion, food aversions (all of the wonderful early pregnancy symptoms).  Hoping that as the 2nd trimester nears that these ill go away. Zofran has definitely became my new best friend. 

Best Moment this week:  Hmmm, I guess the fact that the baby bump is starting to appear...a reminder that I'm pregnant.

What I am looking forward to:  Feeling movement & hearing Baby H's heartbeat again at my 12 week appt.
