So, I meant to blog yesterday but I doubt you were sitting on pins and needles waiting for my blog post. :) Yesterday marked my 11th week of pregnancy. Here's what is happening this week:
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.
It's simply amazing at the little "things" Snootfruiter starts to grow or begin new each week. I wish I could have a 24 hour little sonogram attached to me so I could watch this most amazing time. Next week will mark that I'm entering into my 2nd trimester and during that time, until the half way mark of 20 weeks, Sugar Booger will increase it's weight by 30%!
I am still feeling really well. Normally I'm "done" by 8 or 9 and I fall asleep on the couch but I wake up by 11 to go potty. I don't really notice the urge to go to the bathroom a lot during the day but at night it is very annoying. I wake up between 3 and 5 to go to the bathroom again. I used to be able to sleep all night and on weekends I could sleep in until 9 or 10 and be perfectly fine. NO WAY nowadays! I can't sleep in any more because I have to pee. Haha. Pretty funny stuff. But, I know I'll be sacraficing MUCH more sleep once Sugar Booger is here so complaining about having to wake up twice a night to potty I should not!!
So, we are also two weeks away from our next doctor's appointment as well. Can't wait for that either! The last two weeks have gone by so slowly. It seems like forever ago we went to our last appointment! But, it'll be here soon enough.
Until next time,
