Pregnancy Week 11

Morning, and happy Labor Day to you all! Hopefully most of you get to enjoy an extra day off getting to relax, but if not…hey, only 4 more days until Friday. :-)

Let’s get right into the Marvelous juicy details of today…

Week 11fix

How far along: 11 weeks. Still not much sign of a baby bump. But I’ll be glad to be out of the 1st trimester. I’m ready to start eating some old foods again!

Baby’s size: Size of a lime.

Symptoms: The nausea is slowly getting better, usually it stays away majority of the day but likes to come back with a vengeance right before bedtime. Still breaking out more, and just a littleeeeee extra emotional. :-) A hormonal pregnant woman, who is also a golden retriever owner, watching the last 15 minutes of Homeward Bound is just a recipe for disaster.

Workouts: Light jogging, yoga, and some prenatal videos on FitFusion. Any women out there have any prenatal workout dvds you’d recommend??

Rings on or off: Still on.

Food aversions: Still the same as the previous weeks, nuttin’ really new to add. But I’m so ready for my banana + PB to make a comeback!

  • Chicken
  • Yogurt
  • Bananas & mostly all fruit
  • Vegetables
  • peanut butter

Food cravings:

  • Popcorn
  • Any carb + cheese
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Burritos
  • Raviloi
  • Stuffed crust pizza. digiorno to be exact. That stuff is addicting.
  • Still chocolate, but I’m trying to not give in too too much to this one :-)

Gender: Still no idea, I don’t know how some women are like “oh I totally feel it’s a ______!” All I know, is I feel nauseous. ;-) But, Adam and I have discussed that we do know how to decorate the nursery if it’ll be a girl, and how to decorate it if it’ll be a boy. I’m totally fine with either, they’re both so cute!

Sleep: Much better than last week. But I’ll probably need to invest in a pregnancy pillow soon since they say after the 1st trimester you need to stay off your back.

Baby items purchased: Nothing we’ve bought yet, but we have received some super cute gifts already from family members!

Missing: Raw cookie dough, UGH I made cookies the other day and it was just torture that I couldn’t eat any of the dough. In my opinion, it tastes SO much better as the dough than the finished cookie. Who else is with me?!

Looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat next week!

And that’s a wrap. Catch you guys next week!

Any prenatal workout dvd recommendations?
Raw cookie dough, or the finished cookie? Raw dough all the way!

Blogger Fail

Hi there! Just popping in for a quick second to say I know my posts have been slackin’ for the past couple weeks. Truthfully, I’ve been having a really rough 1st trimester getting sick every day, and the last thing on my mind has been writing posts. But thanks for being patient, and only a few more weeks until hopefully I’m feeling more up for it. So until then, I’ll just plan on posting once a week for a weekly preggo update! Thanks for understanding, y’all are the best. :-)

Pregnancy – Week 10

Good morning all! First, I’d like to give a very special birthday shout out to my one & only! His birthday was yesterday, but let the celebrations continue! I love you honey bear!

Birthday

Next, let’s get moving right along to another Marvelous (thanks for the link up, Katie!) pregnancy update!

Week 10fix

Yes, this picture was taken just before bedtime, and just ignore Max. :-)

How far along: 10 weeks. Double digits!

Baby’s size: Size of a prune.

Symptoms: Breaking out a bit, and LOTS of nausea, and it’s just horrible.

Workouts: I’ve finally added back in some light jogging, and it feels so A-mazing! Still keeping up yoga and pilates when I can…that is, when nausea isn’t ruling my life.

Rings on or off: On.

Food aversions: Basically the same as last week:

  • chicken
  • yogurt
  • bananas, actually most fruit (with exception of nectarines and strawberries)
  • peanut butter
  • avocados
  • vegetables

Food cravings: Still not craving much, with exception of chocolate. This past Saturday out of no where I just needed a brownie. I asked Adam to take me to the store, and he was surprised to see me come out with already made brownies. “You don’t expect me to make ‘em and wait a whole hour before they’re ready, do you?!” ;-)

  • Chocolate, in the form of brownies
  • Mac & cheese
  • Soft pretzels with cheese
  • Steak
  • Tacos & burritos
  • Ravioli
  • Popcorn

Gender: No idea! Craving chocolate is an old wives tale saying that you’re having a girl, but I’m not sure…I’ve sure been craving more savory over sweet overall.

Maternity clothes: Welp, this weekend got a bit chilly, so I busted out my jeans that I haven’t worn in 3 months since it’s been so hot…surprise, they don’t fit. So I just bought a size bigger of regular jeans to hold me over for the next month or so. Thank you Old Navy for $15 jeans!

Sleep: Still not the best. Either waking up to pee, or to go get some food. So when I can’t sleep I’ll go downstairs on the couch and watch some good ‘ole episodes of Full House until I fall back asleep.

Baby items purchased: Still nada, but I have started doing research on some cribs!

Missing: Same as last week and still wishing I could have a Smirnoff every so often. Oh, and missing feeling normal and not nauseous. :-)

Looking forward to: Hearing the baby’s heart beat in 2.5 weeks at our next appointment!

Annnnd I’m off. I’ll catch you later gators!

What did you do this weekend?
What do you do when you can’t sleep?
