11 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

2 September 2013

How far along? 11 weeks / 10 weeks...I'm not sure anymore since our last ultrasound.  I forgot to clarify this with my doctor last week but he did say that my due date was probably a bit off because of the fact that I only had two periods after having Emilia and was still breastfeeding at the time when I got pregnant.  So he mentioned that he would check to see what the computer estimated I was going by the measurements of the baby.  I noticed on the printed picture of the ultrasound that it had put me at 9 weeks (1 week behind) and my E.D.D. was April 1st.  My doctor didn't actually say anything about changing the due date though, so I will ask him again at my next appointment whether or not it'll stay the same!  
Total weight gain: 1lb up from last week making my total weight gain 3lbs and putting me at 118.  
Maternity clothes? Yes, I'm actually wearing both maternity jeans and a maternity t-shirt in these pictures!  The bump has become visible now when I'm wearing clothes and I think I look a lot more pregnant than last time at 11 weeks!
Stretch marks? No new ones!  Been using Mama Mio Tummy Butter every night.
Sleep: Absolutely fine, thank god!
Best moment this week: My cousin gave birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday!  I am so excited and happy for her :) <3
Miss anything? Not really - my symptoms were not so bad this week!
Movement: No.
Food cravings: Again, I'm not a big fan of sweets lately (that's not to say that I haven't stopped eating them though!) I seem to be craving more savoury/salty things.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I've been drinking decaf coffee this week so I'd say that I'm over my coffee intolerance!
Gender: Still no idea!  I've had two people who know me say they feel it's a boy, but then a lot of people online are saying it looks like a girl...who knows really?!
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: The morning sickness thankfully seems to be gone - woo hoo!  But I don't have all of my energy back yet...at a certain point in the day I need a nap!  I also need to eat every few hours otherwise I get cranky (I think I mentioned this last week).  Some weird things I've noticed compared to the last pregnancy...my nails keep splitting whereas last time they grew extremely fast & strong!  Also my skin is not breaking out half as much as it was last time.  My leg hair has not stopped growing (this was a HUGE perk of my first pregnancy...unfortunately I didn't get that lucky this time around!).
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Depends on the time of day and whether there's food in my belly!  Ha ha ha!
Looking forward to: Emilia's 1st birthday :)  And our 12 week ultrasound next week.
