How far along: 11w0d
Baby’s size: 2.13 inches, 0.49 oz., about the size of a plum.
Total weight gain: Up 1.1 lbs. from egg retrieval, which is actually down 1.3 lbs. from last week. Thank you morning sickness!
Maternity clothes: Some of the time. Since I lost over a pound this week some of my regular clothes seem to fit again.
Stretch marks: I pray never, and so far I’m still good!
Sleep: Awful, although maybe part of it is my fault. I’ve felt very tired during the day lately, and while I’ve been avoiding caffeine since we started the stim meds for this cycle, I decided one Peppermint Mocha wasn’t going to hurt. Well, silly me had it at 4pm Saturday, so you can guess how well I slept Saturday night. Pretty much not at all, tossed and turned the entire night. So then of course I was an awful mess of exhausted most of yesterday (Sunday). I was in bed by 8:30pm last night, but again, tossed and turned. I seem to get the best sleep when it’s time to get up for work!
Symptoms/Feeling: I definitely felt much more sick the past week, and while I’m still taking the Unisom and B6, I don’t think they are doing much good. Perhaps my sickness is just too much for them to handle right now. My handy pregnancy app tells me this week and next are the worst,and then hopefully I’ll be much better. I’m praying!
Best moment of this week: Um, only puking once so far? That counts, right?
Miss anything: I miss feeling normal, this almost constant sickness is really wearing on me. And I miss really good sleep, you know, the kind where you wake up in the morning and wonder where the hours went? I haven’t had that in months.
Movement: Still too early, but maybe in a few more weeks!
Food cravings: The past week, and especially the past couple days nothing has sounded good, hence the weight loss. I made myself eat a cranberry orange muffin for breakfast, forced it down. Probably not the healthiest, but got some calories in me.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything lately…
Have you started to show yet: No, still a little bloated, but even that seems to be subsiding a little.
Gender: Blood test this Thursday and then should have the results within a week or so!
Labor signs: Good God no!
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I’m gonna say moody lately, mostly because this constant sickness is just putting me in a bad mood. I so wanted to call in sick to work today, but no, the show must go on!
Looking forward to: Along with our blood test Thursday we’ll also have an ultrasound and get to see baby! Very excited!!!
Purchases for baby: I may have ordered three onesies from Gymboree. In my defense, there were on sale.
Eric’s reactions: Eric has seemed a little stressed lately, but I suppose for good reason. All the residents have a big test next Saturday, so every free minute at home he’s been studying. Hopefully after the test he’s a bit more relaxed.
