Thanks, friends, for sticking with me and my recent lack of blogging. 

I feel like everyday is the same these days and not much eventful is happening. I am just trucking right along and am ready for this first trimester to pass. 

Today, I am 11 weeks!

I'll post pics soon, hopefully.

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 11 weeks
Size of baby:  Sweet baby is the size of a lime.
Total Weight Gain: I don't have a scale at our house. Hoping just a few pounds at this point!
Gender: Too early to tell. 
Movement: Too early to feel movement. 
Sleep:  I am sleeping OK. I can get restless legs during some nights and have to fight nausea which makes falling asleep hard. I do wake up 2 times a night to go to the bathroom. It is like clockwork! Practically the same times each night. 
What I miss: Feeling like myself. I haven't really been out of the house much and everything I do wears me out. It can be incredibly taxing. 
 Cravings: I have wanted macaroni and cheese, grape juice, and Raisin Bran this week.Weird, right?
Symptoms: Headaches, constant nausea, crazy mood swings,  fatigue, restless legs
Best Moment this week: I had 2 days where I was off of the couch most of the day which is huge for me!

This week I purchased a few pieces of maternity clothing from Old Navy and Wal-Mart. 

My regular clothes fit just fine and honestly I am sporting a first trimester wardrobe of yoga pants and t-shirts most days so it isn't an issue.

I borrowed most of my maternity clothes with M but now that we have moved I knew I would need some things. It will be much colder this time around in the fall and winter than it was in Orlando. I am well prepared for that, I believe! 

I am so thankful to be able to see the light at the end of this first trimester. My sister is due 4 weeks before me and has been way more sick than I can even imagine. I feel bad complaining about me being in bed or on the couch all day with nausea and headaches. My poor sista has had it rough! I haven't seen her in 10 months and get to in just a few short weeks. She lives 875 miles away from me and we are going to spend some time at the beach with our parents very soon. So excited!

I love and miss my beautiful sister!!

How are you spending your weekend??

  1. I'm glad that you were able to get off the couch! I've heard that you actually feel better/get less nauseous if you exercise, but I've never done it/been pregnant, so I don't know.
    Tell your sister that I hope she feels better! Does she have a blog?
    I love those clothes that you got; I also love that I am not the only one to shop at Old Navy! :)
