11 week Update

I am officially 11 weeks today! This was baby's first picture taken at 9 weeks!!

How far along: 11 weeks

Total weight gain:0 pounds! Although I have gone up a cup size and I'm starting to get a little pooch in the belly

Size and growth of the baby: at 11 weeks your baby is almost fully formed. At just over 1 1/2 inches long, he or she is about the size of a fig. Your baby's hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under the gums and some of the bones are beginning to harden.

He or she is already busy kicking and stretching, and these tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. Movements will become more frequent but you won't feel these acrobatics for a few months.( All information taken off

Sex: Too soon to tell

Maternity clothes: None yet although my mom and I went to Pea in a Pod and Gap Maternity yesterday and I bought some new bras which I desperately needed and also bought some jeans and shirts

Sleep: I get exhausted throughout the day and am usually asleep by 9 or 10 at night. However I am now getting up about every 3 hours to use the bathroom

Best moment(s) of the week: Hearing the heartbeat and going maternity clothes shopping. It made it seem even more real

Movement: To soon to feel anything yet

Food cravings/aversions: Mushrooms make me sick. No cravings yet, in fact I don't have much of an appetite

Morning sickness: This has gotten worse within the last week or two. I have the dry heaves all day and then about every 2 days I will be sick all day throwing up

Symptoms: Morning sickness, or in my case all day sickness. Headaches, tender and sore breasts, a back that hurts all the time. Next week I schedule myself a prenatal massage so hopefully that helps. Dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dry heaves

Labor signs: None yet thankfully! It would be very scary if I was having any

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: Nothing

What I'm looking forward to: Being out of the first trimester in a week. My prenatal massage and hopefully positive results on my 24 hour urine test that I just started today


  1. Yay .. hope the sickness goes away soon!! Happy for you!

  2. Hope you start feeling better soon!

  3. Hope you start to feel better soon! The 24 hour is LOADS of fun (note the sarcasm!). I just finished mine this morning. Hope you have good results.

    As for the massage...I am jealous and still need to schedule myself one!

  4. How awesome! Maternity clothes shopping always made it seem more real to me, If you continue being sick after the 1st trimester ask for zofran, its a wonder drug (safe) that will keep you from throwing up and being nauseous.

  5. This is so exciting! I hope your morning sickness tones down.. and I'm sure that massage is gonna be amazing! :)

  6. Hope you get over the morning sickness soon! All in all sounds like you are doing great!

  7. So exciting! Hope the sickness and nausea go away soon!! Are you gonna find out the sex when it's time?

  8. Well wow this is so crazy to me to read updates at 11 weeks since I am about to be 37 weeks. I am so happy for you.. I cant wait to see more updated on this wonderful adventure!! :)

    God Bless!

  10. So exciting! Hi baby! Hope you start feeling better soon!
