The One With the 11th Week

I am 11 weeks today! So exciting!

Symptoms: I am feeling a little more energy which is great. My anxiety is a little less the past few days but I probably just am getting more and more use to it! Still having consistent spotting, yuck! It has increased the last three days which has been annoying, I keep hoping that means the subchlorionic hemorrhage must be going away, but it might be wishful thinking. I am absolutely tired of this part. It is so old by now. I mean who wants to have cramps, spotting and the occasional bleed out while pregnant? Nobody. I thought this was going to be my moment to soak in not having a period! Man, that would of been great! My sister-in-law was talking about it with me the other day and she informed me that if I do indeed bleed the whole pregnancy I will have pretty much had a year long period, because I will be bleeding 1 1/2 months after the birth too. Let's pray that won't happen for my sanity people. I keep praying it'll go away, and get smaller, it is such a worry and just causes unneeded stress. 

Cravings: Not too many cravings yet, but I did eat Sweet Tomatoes for lunch and was majorly wanting that for lunch! Mexican food is the one thing that sounds good to me almost all the time. When in doubt, Mexican food is my choice. 

Currently Planning: Gender Reveal Party! We are hoping to know the gender by August 1st, but that's if it is seen on that ultrasound, if not it'll be postponed three weeks later. We are sitting on the edge of our seats to find out the gender!

Pregnancy Questionare

How far along? 11 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I was 124, then the first few weeks or so with all the subchlorionic hemorrhage drama I dropped to 116, now back up to 122!
Maternity clothes? 2 pairs of HUE leggings from Nordstrom. Not even maternity! Going to buy them whether pregnant or not, most comfortable pants ever! No buttons or zippers and look just like jeans!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Get sleepy about 3:30 but end up getting a second wind about 6 o'clock. Fall asleep quick and sleep pretty good during the night, unless I have gas pains, bug bites, or people building homes next door at 5:45 am. // All of these happened this week, ugh! \\ 
Best moment this week: Taking our second set of bump photos!
Have you told family and friends: Yes, we have told the whole world!
Miss Anything? Working out. Days without bleeding/spotting and last but certainly not least, having sex with my husband...who wouldn't miss that?!?
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Mexican food, salads, and fruit!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Veggie patties from Costco that Andrew eats, onions, and broccoli. 
Have you started to show yet: Yes! Probably because I was so small before it had no where to go.
Gender prediction: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I am definitely all over the board. Happy, emotional, stressed, tired, sad, snappy and sarcastic. Most of these are pretty common though just on steroids // hormones \\ now! 

Weekly Wisdom: Listen to your body constantly. If your tired, rest. If you want to get up and do something, go do it! Same goes with food! Also, my dad doing osteopathic manipulation on me has been wonderful for my back pain I have been having!
Looking forward to: My bump getting bigger and finding out the gender!

To our little lime:

We love you so very much already! Although you are only two inches, you had our hearts before you were conceived! Daddy and I can't stop talking about you, it's like your the only thing in our world now. Funny thing is, that will probably never change from this point on! When your a teenager, and I finally let you watch Friends, I know your going to instantly love it. You will have probably heard all the episodes before you are born. All the stress and tears are so worth it. We know it is already even though we can't actually hold you yet //well I kind of am but not in my arms! \\ We cannot wait to see you and to know if you are a boy or a girl. Daddy thinks boy, I think girl. Either way, we will be so ecstatic! I hope you have a nice home in there. I am trying to make it as comfy as possible! Our puppy Eko can't wait for you to join the family either. Sometimes he comes and sniffs my belly. He will even lay his head on my lap as I am sitting on the chair just to get close to you! You have about a million people who love you whole heartedly already, just remember, Daddy and I will always love you more! //When your old enough to argue with us about that, just remember we loved you more before you even had thoughts! \\

P.S. My lovely husband sanded and then painted this chalkboard wall for me. Man, I am so thankful for him! A post about it will be coming soon!
