11 Weeks Down, 29 To Go...

Again, I am really slacking with this whole blogging thing. Sue me. I just haven't had the drive to do it lately, even though I know I should. I'll really try to get back on track this week. I still need to post our BFP story, our ER adventure and hand out some blog awards from MONTHS ago. I'll get around to it...eventually.

How far along?
11 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: No clue at the moment. I haven't been weighed in a while.
Maternity clothes? Nope, still rocking the Bella
Sleep: I love it. I managed 2 2hour naps on Sunday, which was awesome and am getting better at falling asleep and staying asleep all night. W00T for sleep!
Best moment this week: We got to see Baby on Friday! I had some spotting and passed a few clots on Friday and his coworker was nice enough to scan me that evening. It was by far the worst moment this week, but it lead to the BEST moment. Baby looks like a baby now and was spinning and bumping around all over the place. I love seeing Ben's face when Baby pops up on the screen, melts my heart every time.
Movement: None yet. I keep getting these weird vibrating feelings really far down in my ute when I lay really, really still. Some say it's the beginning of feeling movement, others say its gas. Time will tell.
Food cravings: Still rare. I like really bland things right now and am doing pretty well at keeping them down. The nausea is starting to let up (sometimes), so that is helping me a little.
Gender: EVERYONE is saying Girl. Ben is holding firm to Boy. I am somewhere in the middle.
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, hot dogs and Diet Coke
What I am looking forward to: Our NT Scan, which is a week from today! I still remember when this appt was a month away! It seemed like it would never get here, now it's just around the corner!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep when you want/need to. The dishes and laundry can wait.
Milestones: Right now, every day is a milestone. I am more pregnant than I have ever been, so everyday is a huge deal. Our goal is 40 weeks, 37 at the earliest, so every day is one day closer to our goal. (Same as last week, but still how I feel)

What is Baby up to?

Baby currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.

Grow Baby, Grow! Can't wait to see you next Wednesday!



I will take another Belly Pic today and (hopefully) upload it this week!

11 weeks is still pretty early to feel movement. I was aware of Chris moving at about 16 weeks. I went to a really AWFUL movie with your dad (it was called Heavy Metal-horrible!). I was so bored that I quit paying attention to the plotless, dull, stupid movie and started to veg. All of a sudden, I felt a little flutter, like a light tickle. Hello baby!
I know you will be as excited as I was and you'll never forget it.
Luv ya, mean it!
