I’ll start with the good. So I entered my 11th week yesterday and I really can’t believe how fast this is going this time. Since I have a toddler to run around after I don’t have as much time as the first go around to obsess over the pregnancy. Last time it was so different. I actually prefer it to go as fast as possible this time because I’m getting very excited now. I have so much to look forward to this year. This summer my son and I are gonna spend 2 whole months with my parents. I am so happy about that. We leave as early as mid June, just in time for the summer solstice. It’ll be the first flight we take where he gets his own seat, so that’ll be interesting. And in the fall he starts his daycare/school type thing which is gonna be fun for him. And then December comes around and my due date will be there. It’s gonna be a good year ❤
I have some sad news too.. My parents had to put our family dog down yesterday. It wasn’t a shock but so very sad still. She was 16 years old. Which is CRAZY for a dog. So we were very lucky to have her that long. It’s gonna be very weird to go home this summer and not have here in the garden with us barking at people who walk by ;( But it was her time, sadly. She was barely moving for two days, didn’t eat or react to anything. I cried a lot yesterday but I know it was for her best.
Back to the update. What a rollercoaster post. Heh.
11 weeks pregnant ❤
Due date: December 7th 2019
Time left of pregnancy: 28 weeks, 6 days
Baby is the size of: A lime or a fig.
Cravings: I’m basically back to my normal eating habits now. Thankfully. I was eating so weird for many weeks there. This week though it’s mostly been cravings for chocolate, nacho cheese flavored Doritos and carrots. Odd combo when it’s written together like that, ew. Haha!
Movement/pains/aches: This week I thought I felt a little movement one night while lying down. Who knows what it was but there is no way it wasn’t baby related. It felt like a warm swish. I’m not sure how to describe it. I’ve also had a lot of back pain this week. I’m obviously on my feet a lot but that’s unavoidable so I try my best to relax as much as I can.
Purchases: None this week. I don’t think we’re gonna buy anything until after the summer. It just isn’t necessary and we have so much stuff already, a bunch of clothes obviously. Strollers, car seats. There will be purchases though (obviously) and I’ll update it once it happens but for now I’ll remove the “purchases” point of my updates.
Gender of baby: We don’t know.
Mood: This week I’ve been in a good mood. Having the nausea out of my life makes the BIGGEST difference. When it started fading I felt like a new person. I still feel a little dizzy every morning and gag sometimes but it’s noooothing like how it was. It’s totally manageable and last a minimum of 30 minutes, and it’s only right after I stand up out of bed.
Next ultrasound/doctors app.: June 5th. I’m SO excited.
