How far along: 11 Weeks
Baby’s size: .25 oz and 1.61 inches long. It’s amazing that something this tiny has made my belly pop out like a champagne cork on New Years……er….maybe that’s all the limeades I’ve been drinking. Bed Bug is the size of a profiterole which is a pastry filled with cream or custard. According to an extremely reliable source it’s Italian and “Oh so delicious.” Considering I would eat a hawaiian roll stuffed with cream I’m pretty sure this is probably out of this world.
Sleep: This week was pretty good. I feel so tired Im pretty conked when my head hits the pillow. I’ve been waking up with neck pain so don’t know what that’s about or what on earth I’m doing in my sleep but hoping that stops soon. Otherwise, besides having to pee every hour sleep is pretty good.
Best moment this week: Got to hear the heartbeat yesterday. Nice and fast at 168 bpm and I am so relieved. It’s weird the amount of anxiety I’ve had this pregnancy….I have no idea why. So that was really nice to be able to lay all those pesky little thoughts to rest.
Worst moment this week: Too. Much. Work. That is all!
Movement: People will think I’m crazy but I swear I have felt Bed Bug a couple of times. Nothing really strong but there was definitely some fluttering. It’s the earliest I’ve ever felt any of my kids but I swear that’s what it was.
Cravings: I was able to have coffee yesterday for the first time in 7 weeks (without getting sick) and it was heaven. Now I just want to drink it all day to make up for lost time but have to watch my caffeine intake. Boo…. Otherwise still the usual tart things.
Missing Anything: Not missing anything in-particular at this point. I feel like I’m getting into the part where I feel a lot better so I’m really looking forward to that.
Queasy or sick: Nada, feeling pretty good all things considering.
Looking forward to: I have my ultrasound scheduled for November 3 first thing in the morning so that’s super exciting. I haven’t decided if we will throw a gender reveal party this time or not. We toyed with the idea with Gavin but it landed in December and we were so busy with a million things it just seemed to exhausting. So we shall see…..course let’s be real I seem to only live in a world of blue soooooo….
Happy 11 weeks!!
