11 weeks!

I just wanted to say thank you for all of the love and support yesterday!! I just love the blog community :)

Since the big news is out, I thought I would start recapping each week of my pregnancy like I see on some other blogs. I am hoping to keep pregnancy related stuff to 1 or 2 posts a week, since I know I have a lot of readers who are probably not so interested :).

Anyway, it won't take long to get caught up because I didn't start recording my pregnancy in any way until week 11!!

How far along?:  11 weeks, 1 day

Total weight gain/loss:  -3 pounds, must be from the all day sickness because I am not in any way shape or form eating healthy.

The Bump:   No one but those closest to me can really tell, but there's definitely the beginnings of something there!!

What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  Mostly I am just looking forward to the 2nd trimester so I can hopefully stop feeling so terrible.

Symptoms:  All day sickness, fatigue, mild headaches, and this annoying stretchy feeling. It feels like I've done an intense ab workout every day. My midwife says it's normal!

Belly Button in or out?:   Definitely in.

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Can't stand even the thought of an uncooked vegetable. I'm trying to increase my veggie intake by hiding them in my food. My mom made an amazing chicken soup full of veggies, and that seems good. She also made me lasagne with spinach and tomatoes. I don't really have any cravings though, not yet!

What I miss:  Feeling like a normal human being.

Milestones: We heard the heartbeat at our appointment today!! We had seen it via ultrasound at 8 weeks, but we finally got to hear the sound and it was so sweet :). My husband says he could listen to it all day long!

Congrats on the big news, and I'm so excited to start hearing all about it as your bump gets cuter and cuter...though for your sake I really hope your morning sickness stops soon :( That really would put a damper on what I'm sure is a very happy, exciting time in your life!!

Congrats! I had a veggie aversion early in my pregnancy and I drank Green Monster smoothies every day for nearly 2 months in order to get more veggies in my diet.

Luckily that aversion started to taper off around week 20 and hasn't come back (I'm almost 34 weeks).
