11 weeks pregnant {Lime, Plum, Fig}

Okay, the things have picked up a little at 11 weeks pregnant . I’ve noticed that the days have been dragging on (mostly work days). I guess they’ll do that when you feel gross and tired, counting down the minutes until I can clock out and go home! I’ve also been anxiously awaiting our second doctor’s appointment, which is coming up in a few days on Tuesday. I can’t wait to see how different this little Tater-Tot looks on the sonogram, and hopefully I’ll hear great news, that everything is moving along like Mother Nature planned :)

This week, I’m still nauseous everyday, but some days are easier than others. Still haven’t thrown up at all (thank you, little baby!!!). I don’t think I’ve gained any weight yet, if I have, it’s probably only a pound…but…I feel heavier! I feel bulky and sluggish and BLOATED all of the time. Food is very slowly starting to become more appealing, not by much though. I did have an amazing Chicken Pot Pie from Trader Joe’s the other night, which I had been craving for about 3 days…oh it hit the spot, like mmm mmm goood.

My BabyBump phone app says that:
The baby is the size of a lime. This week your baby is officially developed enough to be called a fetus. The good news is that the most critical part of your baby’s organ system development is over. Your baby will grow very rapidly and will double in size by next week. On your baby’s head, the ears are moving to the side of the head. Reproductive organs are becoming more distinguished. More than 75% of all pregnant women experience some degree of morning sickness. The good news is that as you approach your second trimester this often subsides and you’ll find yourself less fatigued during the day. Inside your body, your uterus is starting to get to be too big to fit in your pelvic area and will begin to rise up into your abdomen over the next few weeks.

Baby Center says:

The baby is the size of a fig. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden. She’s already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements ill become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won’t feel your baby’s acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

Okay, Tater-tot…here’s to another week of healthy growth, can’t wait to see you on Tuesday!
xo, Mommy
