11 Weeks

11 Weeks - How my baby is growing:
Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.
She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

How far along? 11 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Scary that I don't know this, but I would guess 5 pounds Weighed myself this morning and I've gained 3.5 :)
Maternity clothes? 1 pair of maternity jeans - but I haven't worn them much yet.  The belly part isn't very comfortable.  I'm still fitting in most of my pants.  
Stretch marks? No, but need to invest in some good cream before it's too late.
Sleep: In the late afternoon I get pretty tired, and I toss and turn a lot at night.  Also, getting up 2-3 each night for a potty break.
Best moment this week: Making nachos last night, they were everything I've been craving on one plate. Also, buying a new cabinet/storage for our tiny, tiny bathroom.  It makes the bathroom look so much better.  Thank you Bed Bath and Beyond for your 20% off coupons!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Tuna! I NEVER craved tuna before and maybe ate it once or twice per year. Also miss Coke Zero.
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Watermelon, I hate a huge bowl of watermelon on Sunday and it was glorious.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat in general and red onions.  We had Subway last night and I want to gag thinking about the red onions.
Have you started to show yet: A little bump so far - basically looks like I ate a few too many cupcakes.
Gender prediction: Girl.  On Sunday Derek told me he is now team pink!!?? We are so indecisive.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Weekly Wisdom: Keep active even when you are tired.  I feel so amazing after a sweaty gym session.
Looking forward to: Getting a bigger bump & finding out the gender! :)

Our bathroom! One of the joys of owning an old house is having the smallest bathroom known to man.  Gotta work with what you got. :)
