How Far Along: 11 weeks 3 days
Size of the Baby: Fig, just over 1.5 inches.
Maternity Clothes: Nope, however I did buy a belly band at Target. I tried it on like a week ago but I felt like it was super tight although it was my size. I wear my normal jeans and haven't really gotten bigger but tight things on my stomach are just a little bothersome. I would wear leggings and jeggings every day if I could! I need more outfits to go with them :) But hopefully when I do get bigger the belly band will be comfortable?
Stretch marks: Nope! Haven't put any of that stretch mark cream stuff on either...should I?
Weight gain/loss: I honestly have no clue what I weigh. If anything, I've gained 0-3 lbs so far and that would be fine if I did. I weigh myself at different times of the day so it varies haha.
Sleep: Not very good. I've been going to physical therapy for my back pain and it still hurts when I lay down and sleep. I've been doing lots of exercises too! When I am up during the day my back is sore but at least not as painful...I have no clue why it kills at night...it's been like this since April or May of 2011...
Best Moment of the Week: The week isn't over...when do you do these things? After 11 weeks is up? Haha.
Movement: I can't feel a thing but apparently our baby can stretch, do somersaults, forward rolls...according to the What to Expect.com iPhone app.
Symptoms: Tiredness! If I don't eat in the morning I feel weird. I wish I could have said I did not throw up once this whole pregnancy but yesterday morning (after I hadn't eaten all night) I smelled our dirty dishes and yeah...that sucked. So I got sick for the first time yesterday. I think I need to have snacks next to me in bed and I should be fine! Sometimes I get a bad taste in my mouth and more annoying than that is the heightened sense of smell. Everything STINKS! Oh, and last week I started getting bloated :( It freaked Kevin out because I showed him my large and in charge belly...so I went to bed haha. But I was like "Woah, I am 10 weeks. I look like I'm 20. I'm HUGE!!!" Then it went down while I was sleeping...thank goodness. Kevin being freaked out freaked me out so I googled it and figured out I was bloated lol.
Food Cravings: Cafe Mexicali (basically Cafe Rio)...umm is that it? Sadly, we have not eaten there yet! I would say I've had more. A few weeks ago I was into plain bagels with strawberry cream cheese then it was French Toast Eggo waffles (the 4 square ones that you had in high school)...for breakfast. Chinese food the week before...
Gender: Not sure but if you were wondering the private parts are growing this week lol.
Belly Button in or out: Definitely in.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My prenatal VitaFusion gummies!!! Ugh they stink. Maybe I should switch to a pill again.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Wedding ring on or off: On.
What I miss: ENERGY! Energy to workout, do anything. I go to bed at 8-10ish and used to stay up until midnight!
What I am looking forward to: Actually getting a belly so I don't just look like I have a food baby and finding out the gender! And shopping for new clothes! Even if it is pregnancy clothes I LOVE TO SHOP! Any recommendations on where? I love Nordstrom fyi.
Nursery: Filled with our stuff...
Emotions: Good I think!
Stupid things I have done: I feel a little more forgetful but maybe it is because I'm just looking at my planner less...
There you have it. I hope to do these weekly.
THANKS SO MUCH for all of your congratulations and excitement for us!
We are so excited to be parents come August! :D
