Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 11 weeks

Size of baby: just over 1 and 1/2 inches long - the size of a fig

Weight Gained:  3 .5 pounds

Sleep: I'm waking up abnormally early (for me), but seem to be resting well overall.  I've been told to sleep as much as I can right now.

Cravings: Nothing specific.

Symptoms: So far the only 'issue' I'm having is just feeling nauseated of an evening or whenever I don't eat.  Evenings are definitely worse on me so.  My appetite seems to be not quite as intense now - thankfully.  Still no morning (or anytime) sickness.  Saturday's are a little rough...I'm more active trying to get things done around the house and end up very sore.  Clothes are starting to get tight or just overall not fit right.  Thankfully I have some cute things to transition me into winter yet.

Movement:  BabyCenter tells me the baby is kicking and stretching, but of course I don't feel anything at this point.  So hard to believe so much is going on in there!

Maternity Clothes:  only for comfort at this point.  Not quite a necessity.

Best moment this week:  We had our 2nd doctor's appointment this past week.  Nathan was able to go with me again and we met our actual doctor this time.  She was very sweet!  We were able to hear the heartbeat again and doc said everything sounded great.  It took a minute to hear it so this was relief to my ears!

Three more days until I am 12 weeks along.
