Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 11 Weeks, very excited to wrap up the first trimester this week!

Size of baby: Baby Thompson is the size of a lime

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down about 10 pounds from first appointment, they told me I could only gain 15 pounds, does this mean I now get 10 flex pounds? I hope so!

Maternity Clothes: I have started scouting out clothes for down the road that will keep growing with me.

Gender: Still deciding if we are going to find out, but I think I'm going to want to know. We think doing a gender reveal with our parents when we are home for holidays would be fun.

Movement: I didn't know that little baby was already moving and groovin in there. We got a big surprise with a bonus sonogram at our OB appointment yesterday, and that little baby was waving it's arms and moving all around, it was super cool!

Sleep: R and R are my main priorities these days. It's so nice to get a good nights sleep and take a nap whenever I like. I'm sooo lucky for that!

What I miss: Energy and not feeling sick!

Cravings: Still in survival mode. Making and eating healthy food, just not keeping anything substantial down.

Symptoms: Do my best to get through the morning sickness, hoping the second trimester brings all the good things I've been holding out for!

Best Moment: seeing that little girl or guy wave it's arms at us during our bonus ultrasound. Getting a prescription for Zofran, although it hasn't really worked for me yet.

So nice that you're blogging more now. I guess that thing called work had something to do with that.
Down 10-pounds!! woohoo! I think that would probably happen with me because I would have to do without wine and cheese!

Girl, I tried every anti-nausea medication when I was pregnant with Bella! I took Zofran during the day and Phenergan at night (to help me sleep). The 2nd trimester is absoute bliss, so be sure to enjoy every moment! =)

I think a gender reveal around the holidays is such a cute idea! That's crazy that you're almost in the 2nd trimester...so exciting! I'm glad you're able to rest when you need to. That is so important.

I feel you! I was sick all 40 weeks and even got sick during labor....aauugghh. Zofran didnt work for me but Zantac over the counter was a godsend. Apples seemed to help too fpr some reason. Hope you feel better!
