Tuesday, September 11

11 weeks.

I woke up today feeling very thankful.
Humbled that I am home safe and sound with my sweet baby growing strong and so grateful for the men and women that are making it possible. I also found it a little ironic that today marks 11 weeks on Sept 11 2012.
I still remember exactly what I was doing 11 years ago, and I don't think I'll ever forget.

Today is: Sept 11 2012

How far along:
11 weeks
Total weight gain:  I am a little unsure. With all the puking I believe I dropped again. 
Baby is the size of:  About the size of a fig, over 1 inch now!

What's going on with the babe: 
Besides still making momma really sick, baby is almost completely formed. Her sweet hands can almost open and close into fists and some of her bones are starting to harden.

What's going on with the mama:
Still exhausted, still sick most days, but thankfully no new pregnancy symptoms have appeared.
Baby is a: Boy or a girl. About 9 more weeks till we know!
Maternity clothing: Only a few. Most shirts fit me ok, but my jeans are pretty uncomfortable. I love leggings and the one pair of maternity jeans I have!
Sleep: Is still just okay. This week has been better, only getting up once a night to pee.
Movement: It's happening, but it's too soon to feel it, yet.

Not really. It just depends on how my tummy feels. Meat is still one of my least favorite items and any type of bread is usually what I crave. 

The best moment(s) of this past week:

Having a few good days and actually being able to cook dinner without gagging!

Our first OB appointment was last week and though it was nice to meet everyone and get it out of the way, we were unable to hear the heartbeat and most of the appointment was a little overwhelming for me. My midwife explained we have nothing to worry about as she said I my uterus is tilted backwards and that can make it hard to hear the heartbeat. She said everything else looks really good but just to double check I see her next week at 12 weeks to try again. If we don't hear it at that point she would like to schedule an ultrasound just to make sure everything is peachy!
We were sent home with so MUCH information and I have been to many of my friends OB appointments so it was weird, but fun to be the Momma this time!
It's been nice being at home, it gives me time to rest and sleep when I get hit really hard with the sickness and it gives me more time to really get excited. I've been thinking about baby a lot these last couple of days and we have a long ways to go but I'm already excited to see his or her face!

Hoping this is an even better week than last and I feel better everyday. Till then we keep the zofran and bed close and keep on praying!
