11 week update

12 Apr

Welp, it only took a couple of weeks to get behind. Go figure! I’m planning on starting belly pics soon, since I have a little bit of a roundness showing.

How far along: 11 weeks today!

The baby is as big as a: large plum

What’s happening to the baby: developing new body structures is nearing an end, as much of them are fully formed. They will continue to mature for the next 28 weeks and the organs will start practicing their jobs. The digestive system is starting to practice, as is the pituitary gland. Teeth, finger and toe nails, and hair follicles are forming.

Gender: 9 more weeks until we can find out.

Movement: none yet! Getting closer.

Food/Drink cravings: oranges, TexMex food, bean dip

Sleep: thankfully I found out a lot of the tiredness I’ve been having is due to a less than fully functional thyroid. At night, I am still having some wild and crazy dreams. I am only getting up twice a night now, and am looking forward to those trip going away in my second trimester!!!!

Symptoms: tired, bloody noses, and some heartburn. Other than that, this pregnancy has pretty much been a breeze.

Getting ready: we get to hear baby’s heartbeat at our appointment Monday! So excited.
