11 Weeks and OB appointment!

How Far Along: 11 weeks

How Big is The Baby: About the size of a lime. Weighing in around .25 ounces.

Total Weight Gain: Went to the OB this week and got weighed in. About 7lbs.

Maternity Clothes: BE band.... it is sooooo annoying. Time to get some maternity pants because I am SICK AND TIRED of pulling it down every time I move.

Sleep: Not sleeping well at all.

GENDER: Dying to know!!!

Movement: We got to see more movement on the ultrasound at exactly 11 weeks. It is SO neat to see.

Food Cravings: Still craving sweets, and ice cream which I normally dont even like. Sour patch blue raspberries and cherries are god's gift to my pregnancy.

What I Miss: Deli meat, seafood, sleep, not peeing every 2 seconds...... and maybe sangria ;)

What I'm looking forward to: My NT scan on wednesday!!!! Also have a visit with my nurse practitioner at the OBs office that day so I am excited to meet her.

Milestones: Seeing our first 3D ultrasound pictures of our baby. We are so in love.

Symptoms: Still extreme exhaustion, craving sweets, not sleeping well, moody as heck, indigestion.

Recap of our OB appointment:
First we had an ultrasound and got to see our first 3D images of our baby. Then we got to meet our OB. Let me tell you, I really really liked her. She was young and friendly and I was really happy that I was referred to her. We went through the family history and our ttc history. Everything seemed to be going really well.

The only thing that she did mention was that the ultrasound tech took a quick measurement of the nuchal fold (which they test in the NT scan) and she said that it appeared to be thicker than they like to see which can indicate an issue. She said not to worry yet and to wait and see what happens at the NT scan.

Without further ado here is our baby:


  1. AWESOME pics!!! AAHHHH!! You look so cute, btw. And I hear ya on the BeBand. It is my arch nemesis.

  2. I'm glad things are going well. Can I make a reccomendation on the band? I had a cheapie one that wouldn't ever stay put, but I bought one from Mother.hood Mat.ernity, and it stayed in place until I was 20+ weeks. Maybe it would work for you!

  3. Very glad things are going well!
