11 Weeks


How far along? 11 weeks

How big is Baby? about one and a half inch and the size of a fig
Total weight gain/loss: 4 pounds (still the same as last week)
Maternity clothes? very comfy!
Stretch marks? No, let's pray it stays that way!
Sleep: about the same, nothing new to report.
Best moment this week: Seeing Baby Ledford for the third time!! He/she is VERY active and very cute!!!!
Movement: LOTS! Rebecca (the OB's nurse) had to chase him/her all around just to get a picture, but too soon to feel it.
Food cravings: For some crazy reason I could eat Mexican or cheeseburgers every meal, but everything else still makes me sick.
Gender: Too soon to know, but I could care less! Anyone have any ideas, I would love to hear them?
Labor Signs: none, thank goodness!
Belly Button in or out? In and I pray it stays that way. Ha!
What I am looking forward to: starting to work on nursery ideas after Christmas!!!!!
Milestones: hitting 11 weeks and seeing a perfect baby!
I want to say Merry Christmas to all of my friends still trying for a baby out there. I know how hard this time of the year is, I've been there, and honestly, there are times I feel cheated and sad this year. Please do NOT give up hope. I'm always praying for you!
I have a post coming in a couple of days that will share exactly how I feel being pregnant after infertility and I think it will surprise you. It's hard to get excited, have excited people around you, and I still feel hurt and disappointed when I hear about someone who got pregnant easily or an early, carefree announcement. Ok, more on that this weekend!

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but for me, I could eat cheeseburgers like no one's business and I was blessed with a baby boy! I have heard cravings for meat and cheese *could* mean boy...but thats all Old Wive's Tales :) Merry Christmas...I am so happy for you and your little family!
