Pregnancy Update: Week 11
How far along? 11 Weeks
Total weight gain: 3 lbs (Pre-pregnancy weight: 115 lbs) Holy cow! How did that happen?? In just 7 days people!!
Babies are the size of: About the size of a Brussels sprout!
Babies' development: From now until week 20, the twins' are going to triple in length and their weight will increase triple fold.
Estimated length of babies': About 1.61 in
Estimated weight of babies': Less than 0.25 oz. That's double from last week!
Maternity clothes: I went shopping. Picked up a few things. Because I'm starting to get a little tummy.
Stretch marks: None :)
Sleep: I'm tired 24/7. But I just can't sleep. I feel sick all the time. Make at least 5 potty breaks a night. But at work, in a chair, I take 5 minute naps. All day long!!
Best moment this week: Browsing the maternity and baby departments, at Target. Just dreaming up our future. Oh, I can't wait!!
Miss anything: Sleep. I'm talking good sleep. And eating a hotdog at Target. Crazy! I know. :)
Movement: Nothing so far.
Food cravings: Dry Cheerios, Target hotdogs, anything from Chico's, banana pancakes, and cucumbers. Out of all these things, I just eat Cheerios. Day and night. And for the last 2 days, I've finished off, an entire bag of English cucumbers. You know the bags. From Costco!!
Gender prediction: James is predicting 2 girls. I'm leaning towards 1 girl, 1 boy. 99.9% of the people we work with, say 2 boys....
Anything making you queasy or sick: Lots of movement, the normal "morning sickness," bending over, strong smelling foods. But can we talk about "morning sickness?" Did a man come up with that term? Because my dears, I'm sick all day long!!
Labor signs: None
Symptoms: Tired, nauseous, and I have 0 energy. I also have 0 desire to cook or clean. Which is a very new thing around here.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm that happy, tired, always throwing up "pregnant nurse." Bodily fluids don't make me sick. But breakfast trays, oh ya they do!! But I'm keeping my spirits up. Telling the kiddos silly jokes. :)
Looking forward to: Being able to wear my new clothes. I just can't imagine myself, with a big 'ol belly. Even though, my "belly" is already showing. Someone asked me today, if in my 2nd trimester. Not yet. And I've only gained 3 lbs. So how am I already showing??
