11 Week Bump-date!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

This week has been a crazy one, but I've been able to get a lot of rest in. We had an ultrasound on Monday, the 13th and got to see our little nugget in action! Baby was so wiggly that the doctor could not get a good picture! Kind of a bummer, but happy to see a little active, growing baby! Heart rate was a strong 162 bpm, and my due date moved from the 7th to the 4th of August! Yay! My money is on a late July baby though...I just have a feeling we won't make it to August! 

In other news, Brian being the kind, sweet, amazing hubby that he is bought me the body pillow of my dreams AND a baby name book! He so totally rocks! It's the coolest baby name book I have ever seen! Each name has spelling variations, meaning, spiritual connotation, and a scripture from the Bible! Be still my heart! I'm having fun flipping through and can't wait to really dive in and start picking the ones I love the most. We decided that we are going to have a girl's and boy's name picked before we find out the gender, just to be fair. :) 

And now, the 11 week bump-date!

How far along: 11 weeks
Gender Prediction: Ok, I think I officially switched over to Team Blue...I'd put money on it being a boy now!
Weight gain: Lost a pound this week...I have no idea how with all the frosting I've been eating by the spoon-full, but I'm trying to eat more.
Maternity clothes: None, but we are going on a Target trek tomorrow, so I think I might get a couple of things for work.
Stretch marks: Nope
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: MUCH better with my new body pillow...it's seriously a preggo's BFF!
Best moment this week: Seeing our little peanut dancing around the screen! Love good appointments!
Worst moment this week: Stressing about going back to work on Monday...not to sure how this will pan out, but I have to try!
Miss anything: Even though meat mostly sounds so gross to me, I could totally go for a Quizno's turkey ranch melt! This whole "no deli meat" thing is getting to me. :(
Movement: Felt the tiniest little butterfly wing in my abdomen a couple of days ago while doing my pregnancy yoga! It stopped me in my tracks! I can't wait to feel stronger movement as baby grows!
Cravings: Still fruit...smoothies are my fav!
Anything make you queasy or sick: Still can't eat meat, but its getting a little easier to smell it now.
Looking forward to: Second trimester is just around the corner! Glory! Hallelujah! 
Weekly Wisdom: Yoga DVDs for pregnancy are amazing! It's kinda strange at first, but I feel so much better after I do it and it helps with sleeping and headaches!


  1. I love that you are blogging this experience. My money is going to be on Team Pink, simply because of your sweet cravings and aversion to meat. When the twins were growing in my belly I craved cereal and any food that contained meat. Morning sickness is the worst! I wore the sea sickness bracelets that you can buy at Walgreens or CVS. Enjoy this special journey!

    1. Thank you so much! Pregnancy so far has been the most interesting ride of my life, so I had to document it! It's been a lot of fun. You could be right about Team Pink! :)
