I said I was going to probably start baby bump pictures today, but I am sick and still in my pajamas. Sorry maybe next week. Don't worry there's no bump yet, so you're not missing anything.
how far along? 10 weeks, Wednesday 1/4/2012
how are you measuring? ????
size of baby? Lime
heartbeat?171 total weight gain/loss? + 1.2 lbs
maternity clothes? I noticed a pair of my jeans were feeling a bit uncomfortable when I sit down. The waste band is right where the bloat is right now. Agh!
stretch marks? Nope. Still using Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter. sleep? I've been sleeping pretty good. Now that I have a cold, I've been sleeping a lot! best moment this week? I was actually starting to feel good with energy and my appetite came back. movement? Nope nothing yet food cravings? Still loving fruit and the clementines
gender predictions? Still going to say girl. I read online that craving oranges means girl, so we will see.
what i miss: Not having the energy to fight a cold. This is my 2nd cold already. what i'm looking forward to: We have a doctor's appointment on Friday. She said hopefully we will be able to find the heart beat with the doppler. If she can't find it then, I will get an ultrasound. how are you feeling?This last week I was really feeling awesome. I woke up Monday morning with a sore throat. Yesterday with a little bit of a headache and today I just felt like I got hit by a bus. Man I feel miserable. I stayed home today, and I have been sleeping off and on all day.
Development this week: Today starts week 11 of development. The little one is just over 2 inches long and weighs about a third of an ounce. The body is straightening out and the torso is lengthening. Hair follicles are forming, and fingernail and toenail beds are beginning to develop. The nails are forming on individual fingers and toes, having separated recently from the webbed hands and feet of just a few weeks ago. And although you can't tell the baby's gender, ovaries are developing if it's a girl. The fetus has distinct human characteristics by now with hands and feet in the front of the body, ears nearly in their final shape, open nasal passages on the tip of the nose, a tongue and palate in the mouth, and visible nipples.
