Pregnancy Highlights

(FYI: I have decided to do a weekly update on my pregnancy. (As you will see below) The only thing you won’t see is baby bump pictures. I decided before I got pregnant, that this wasn’t something I really wanted to do. I am not against these picture updates and know many friends that choose to do them. I also know that there will be plenty of preggo pictures of me from various important upcoming events and those will be blog worthy. So truly, I feel that no one will be missing out on anything.  Despite the fact that I am choosing not to do baby bump updates, I still wanted to document this big event in our lives. I got the template idea for this from Sarah over at Adventures of the Christensens. I don’t always comment on her blog, but love reading updates on her sweet family.)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 11 weeks!

Size of baby: your baby's the size of a lime!

Your fetus is about 1.6 inches long, and she's got about a 1:1 head to body ratio. She now weighs in at about .25 ounces.

Baby Development This Week: 
·         You can't see it, but she's moving fluidly and gracefully in there.
·         Her skin is see-through, but she's on her way to looking more like a baby.
·         Her fingers and toes aren't webbed anymore.
·         Tooth buds, hair follicles and nail beds are forming.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, I do enjoy wearing leggings and pj bottoms even more than usual. 

Gender: Unknown

Movement: Our baby is moving, but I’m not able to feel it yet.

Sleep: Sleep has become one of my favorite things. J

What I miss: I miss being able to eat whenever I want. Now to avoid feeling absolutely horrible, I have to eat every couple of hours.

Cravings: I had the strongest craving for a BLT an hour ago.

Symptoms: minor back pain, heartburn, and leg cramps at night.

Best Moment this week: My doctor’s appointment yesterday, we got tons of information on the pregnancy and lots of goodies. I got a pregnancy/body pillow and I think John and Sophie are jealous, it’s so awesome! J


  1. :) I need to come and see you this summer and take some uber cute photos of baby to be even you would like.

  2. :)You're gonna be so cute with a baby bump!

  3. Thanks for the offer, Victoria. I wouldn't ask you to do that. It's waaaay too far! I got a discount with a local photographer here, if we have the money I may do that. I just have a lot of reasons that I don't want the typical baby bump pictures. I don't wish to go into a big explanation here. I don't want to unintentionally offend anyone.

    Thank you Stephanie, that's sweet of you to say that. :)

  4. ha..I ate BLT's witb my first husband would have to bring them to me for lunch!!
    good luck with everything!

  5. BLT...yum!

    How much longer until you'll know the gender??

  6. The body pillow was my absolute favorite and it stuck around even after the baby!! I tagged you in a post


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
