Eleven Weeks

I think I am going to start recording my pregnancy progress on Thursday's using these little surveys that I have seen floating around blogland. If you aren't interested in this, that's fine, feel free to skip but I want to record this info for my own sake ... because I know that I will likely forget everything that went on with this pregnancy when/if the time comes for me to be pregnant again.

How far along? 11 weeks

Total weight gain: According to my best estimate, I believe I have lost about 5 pounds since my first appointment at 6 weeks due to the morning sickness. I will discuss this with my Dr. at my next appt, but so far, it doesn't seem like it should be a concern so as long as I make up for it in the 2nd and 3rd trimester.

Maternity clothes? Nope. Although, despite the weight loss, I can already see a change in the way my tummy looks and feels. At first I thought I was imagining it, but last weekend the FD told me that my belly was starting to look chubby. I think this is the only time in the history of the world that a man is allowed to say that to his wife. My skinny jeans are too tight to wear unless I do them up with an elastic band, but my other jeans are still a-okay.

Sleep: Good for the most part. I went through a stage of waking to pee every night at 3 am. Lately, that has been happening around midnight. I also usually wake up early early early in the morning to pee, as well.

Best moment this week: Finding out my baby is now the size of a fig and not a kumqat.

Movement: Not yet.

Gender: No idea. I think boy, E thinks girl. Sometimes we switch. One incredibly accurate source, however, told me right away that I will be having a boy.

Labor Signs: I would hope not.

Belly Button in or out? In ... hopefully for a long time yet.

What I miss: My appetite and my desire to cook/bake.

Weekly Wisdom: Baby likes peanut butter lindor truffles. A lot.

Milestones: None really. Except that perhaps my nausea/morning sickness is starting to ease up (knock on wood).

What a fun way to remeber details, because believe me when I say that mommy-brain will evetually kick in and details will be a distant memory. ;)

Figs are much better than kumquats:)

Oh I am still so excited for you. Your going to look SO cute pregnant! :)

Please do belly pics too.. those are memorable, even if you don't post on the blog.

Go here... http://www.webwomb.com/chinesechart.htm I did this with mine and it was right for the both of them.... although I had to look at my age at the time my baby was due, not at the time I got pregnant. But, heck, you have 50/50 chance with it... have some fun! HA!

Can't wait to read more...

Emily said...

.. wait I totally read the instructions wrong on that and redid it on that website... still right! I think you can probably predict accurate what the sex will be.

Cute cute Cute. You will be happy you recorded this because at the time you think you will remember everything but after a few crazy years it slowly slips away. Don't worry I lost a few in the first trimester also.
