You can’t see it, but she’s moving fluidly and gracefully in there. Her skin is see-through, but she’s on her way to looking more like a baby. Her fingers and toes aren’t webbed anymore. Tooth buds, hair follicles and nail beds are forming.
How Far Along: 11
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: I honestly don’t know anymore, I keep calling this baby “she” but I think I’m just saying she because my last baby was a girl. I often called Elena “he” in utero even though I had a very strong feeling she was girl.
Currently craving: Salads! I went to Martin’s a couple of days ago and got a large salad I’ve been splitting it and eating it a little at a time, so yummy! It’s got baby corn in it, green olives, cheese, carrots, sunflower seeds and even a little bit of lettuce 😉
Currently Avoiding: Not really avoiding anything just having a hard time figuring out what I do want to eat.
Weight: Haven’t checked!
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: Still can’t get enough of it! When I sleep, I sleep hard.
Recent Crazy Dream: I had two this week. One was that when I went to my next scan there was no heartbeat (thanks PgAL brain) and the other was that when we went to the NT scan the techs told us that the baby was most likely a girl.
Evidence of pregnancy brain: My evidence is that I had the PERFECT example to share with you but, I forgot what it was.
Symptoms?: Are getting better, I still get M/S but haven’t thrown up again yet. But while eating a Stromboli the other day I thought for sure I was going to lose it but I collected myself and didn’t. Sore breasts are in full force as is crying at the drop of a hat. I lost it while watching The Hunger Games, although reading the book I also lost it and I wasn’t pregnant then!
Health: Still good! My cervix looked good at my last appointment!
Any appointments?: No appointments but I did stop by my midwife’s office to see if she could get the heartbeat on the doppler thanks to the dream I had. She did. We couldn’t get the heart rate though because Mason wouldn’t stop talking. I barely got to here the heartbeat!
Any baby related purchases? No purchases but I did get the Baby Peek Plus monitor to review from Summer Infant, and B.D.A pants from Belly Bandit . So far I LOVE both! And I’m excited to share my review with you guys!
Best thing to happen in the past week/ Worst: Best: Hearing the baby’s heart beat on the Doppler.
Worst: I can’t think of anything. Maybe not getting enough sleep but that’s my fault!
And here’s my FLUMP. Since this is two weeks in a row that I’m wearing this yellow tank looks like this should be the shirt I wear in my bump pictures!
