Peanuts Update - Week Eleven

Today is - Saturday, January 26, 2013

How far along - 11 weeks

Baby is the size of - A fig

Total Weight Gain - 10lb already!

What's going on with baby - This week blood begins circulating through Peanuts body and the Placenta starts to work! Little tooth buds are forming under the gums and his/her bones are beginning to harden.

What's going on with Mummy - One of my pregnant apps on my phone says that I may start feeling warmer now due to all the extra blood flow.. The last few nights I have been so hot and kicking the covers off even though its -5 degrees outside.

Maternity clothing - None of my pre- pregnancy jeans fit anymore. Yesterday morning I squeezed into a pair and it looked like I had been poured into them and left to set.. I lasted about 10 minutes before I was so uncomfortable. I wearing a lot of Cargo pants and my maternity jeans. Normal tops just in a bigger size.

Sleep - I literally cannot get enough. It's weird for me because I've always been a morning person but now I could sleep all morning.. If I didn't have a three year old pulling me out of bed off course.

Movement - A few times this week I've stopped and thought.. "What's that?" I doubt it's anything baby related though.. It's probably me just wishing it was the baby!

Food cravings/Aversions - I have craved sweet stuff this week.. Cookies, chocolate.. You name it.. If its bad for you then I want it.

Symptoms - My morning sickness had been on and off this week.. Tuesday and Thursday I didn't take any anti nausea medication!! I still feel nauseous everyday but it hasn't been all day long.. I've probably jinxed myself now!

My heartburn seems to have calmed down too although the tiredness has stepped up a notch.. Swings and roundabout :)

Oh and I cannot make it through it the night without having to pee!

How is this pregnancy different from the first - With James I had no hint of a bump until I was 20 weeks and even then it wasn't obvious that I was pregnant. Not once did I have someone stop me and ask me how far along I was etc.. This time I am starting to show already :)

Best moments of this week - James has been so loving this week, wanting to snuggle lots! He's also so funny! I am loving this age :)
