11 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 11 weeks

Total Weight Gain: minus 13lbs

Baby Size: Lime

Maternity Clothes: I wore some of my old jeans, they still fit but were a little uncomfortable.

Gender: I think boy this week

Movement: Not yet!

Sleep: Sleeping ok still.  I keep getting headaches in the evening so I go to bed early and end up waking up around 4am and just laying in bed until Neil wakes up.

What I miss: I daydream about crafting or painting or sewing, but I don't have any energy to work on crafts, not even my quilt!

Cravings: I haven't been craving (or eating) a whole lot this week.  I think about ice cream a lot, but I don't actually want to eat it :)

Other crazy symptoms: This week I took one step forward and two steps back.  I went to work for two hours each day on Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday I woke up throwing up and had such a rough go of it that day and the next that Neil had to take me to urgent care again :(

Best Moments this week: Getting to hear the heartbeat!  The nurse at urgent care kindly offered to let us listen to it!  My mom and I got to hear the strong, fast beat (155) but poor Neil had just left for an ordination meeting at church.  That's ok, we go to the Dr on Wednesday and he can hear it then.  I can't wait!
I also had visits from my awesome friends this week, Amanda and Nicole :)  They showered me with goodies and treats.  I got several sweet cards in the mail and facebook comments and countless prayers sent up for me.  I am so blessed!

Oh Julie! I'm enjoying reading all your bumpdates!

I'm so sorry you are feeling so sick. I know that is NOT fun, I wish there was something I could do for you. I love you so much and you are doing such a good job growing this little baby!!

I can't wait for our little cousins to be friends :)
