The 11 Week Rundown
Baby Size: A little fig!
Feeling: Still a little nauseous/bloated and tired. Some days are better than others. And I'm an "evening sickness" person instead of a "morning sickness" person. Which is kind of better since I have Q around to help with Aurora so I can rest. Sleep is okay, but I am peeing at least 3 times a night, which is frustrating. I've also had a cold, which has made all of the symptoms worse.
Weight gain: I've lost 3 or 4 pounds since my first dr. appointment, but it's all okay. I'm trying to only gain 20 pounds with this pregnancy (since I still have some Aurora baby weight). .
Cravings/Aversions: Craving: Mostly salty and sour things: pickles and olives, fries with vinegar, cucumbers...with vinegar, cheese, sour patch candies/jellybeans, and smoothies. I have been eating mostly vegetarian, but not vegan. I don't feel guilty about this, and I won't defend it: it is what it is. As I move into the second trimester and have no nausea to speak of, I plan on trying to eat as vegan as possible...and definitely eat a lot more veggies (lettuce texture, etc. makes me queasy! I have been trying to sneak veggies in other things like soups, etc.) Aversions: I had my first (half) cup of coffee yesterday. I woke up a day or two after I found out I was pregnant, and was totally uninterested in coffee (my love!). It's probably better b/c I don't have to watch my caffeine intake!
Preparations: I got a bunch of baby things out from under our stairs to see what we have and start thinking about what we might need. I started a little "registry" list, even though we most likely won't have a shower or anything. It's more for me to remember things.
Thanks for reading and sending us healthy, happy thoughts! :)
