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…
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!
- Bananas & mostly all fruit
- peanut butter
- Any carb + cheese
- Mashed potatoes
- 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!
