11 weeks

Sorry I'm late posting this again! Written Tuesday night the 25th.

Due date:  According to my ovulation day my due date is April 16, 2013.

How far along?: 11 weeks

Total weight loss/gain: The day before the IUI I was 206. This morning I was 202.8. Still losing, but I know my babies are getting what they need because they are growing on track YAY!

What's going on with the babies?: We saw Roo and Squirt last night and it was amazing! For the first time we saw them move and boy were they moving! Especially Roo! They were flipping and wiggling so much that Dr Monty couldn't get any measurements or their heart rates. He was having trouble even keeping them on the screen. Chasing them around with 'ol wandy was interesting LOL! So, we don't know exactly how big they are, but they grew a lot from the last U/s at 9 weeks. Which by the way I finally added to the Squirt and Roo page along with what he could get last night! Sorry it took so long. They actually look more like little humans now! So cool! We saw their longer arms and legs wiggling around and could definitely see their heads and bodies. Seeing them move was the first time I was brought to tears at an U/s. At 11 weeks they should be about 1.6 inches (41mm) from crown to rump. I like the sound of head to tushy better, rump is just strange. Their diaphragms are forming so they could start hiccuping and doing swallowing movements now.

What's going on with my body?: At the beginning of this week I had a sinus infection so I went to the Dr and he gave me some safe antibiotics. They definitely helped because I feel so much better, but like antibiotics do, they killed all the bacteria including the good kind and I ended up with a yeast infection. Dr Monty wasn't surprised since everything down there is more sensitive now, but he was glad we caught it early. I'm using all those lovely creams now. Hopefully it will go away soon.
The antibiotics made me a little sick to my stomach, but now that I'm done with them I'm feeling better. Other than some pulling and pinching I don't feel much of anything.

What does the belly look like?: Hubby says I look a little bigger below my belly button. I can see a difference when I'm naked, but clothed I don't see it yet. I put up another belly pic, you decide.

Maternity clothes: Still nothing. My jeans are still pretty comfy so I will probably get at least another week out of them. I do need bras badly. I am down to 1 that fits! I will probably just go out and get some regular bras without underwire this week and then wait till the end to get nursing bras.

Movement: They are moving a lot, but I can't feel them yet!

Sleep: I have been sleeping great! Basically through the night, but get up to pee once or twice.

Cravings/aversions: Still have an aversion to sweets except for early this week I had a craving for a dairy queen blizzard with chocolate crunchies and peanut butter sauce. I got a small one and it was so good! I also made and ate some egg salad without feeling grossed out! I call that a big step! I think I turned a corner this past weekend. All of a sudden my appetite came back. I can eat so much more now and I get hungry more often. YAY!

Sex of the babies: They Hubby and I talked about it this week and I think we came to the agreement that we will not be finding out the sexes.

Names: We have been talking more about names, but haven't written any down yet. I really need to start before I forget some of the ones we have been thinking about.

What I miss: I can't think of  anything I miss this week!

What I am looking forward to: I am looking forward to telling everyone! We had originally planned that we would wait till 12 weeks, but after seeing them wiggling around so much I don't know if I can wait any longer! I will let you know.

Mood: Been feeling great! So overly happy to have these babies growing inside me!

Milestones: We saw Roo and Squirt wiggle around today for the first time!!

Medical concerns: Like I said above, I am almost over a sinus infection, but unfortunately now I have a yeast infection. Praying the meds help and it goes away without any complications.

Sex?: Between the sinus infection and now the yeast infection, it's nonexistent and will be for at least another week. I wanted to so bad, but I couldn't breathe out of my nose and a runny nose isn't very sexy.

Best moment of the week: Seeing our babies wiggle around for the first time!! Most amazing thing I have seen yet!

Hows Daddy?: Daddy still isn't feeling well. Still congested. He seemed pretty disconnected from the pregnancy this week, but seems a bit more right after we saw them on the U/s again. Hopefully that will keep up this week and the rest of the pregnancy. Anyone have any ideas of how to include Hubby more? Help him connect? We read a pregnancy day by day every night and I talk to them around him. I also tell him things like they miss him. He seems to like that so I hope it's helping.

Nursery: We got everything set up just in time for FIL to come on Saturday. He will be staying till Thursday. Here is a pic of what the room looks like right now. Please pardon the messy bed. FIL is still here.


  1. Oh my gosh! 11 weeks? Girl I could not be happier for you! On my way to check out pics now...

  2. Yay for 11 weeks. Glad everything is going good and Roo and Squirt are doing good.

  3. My hubby was the same way. He wasn't as connected in the 1st trimester, but once my belly started to grow in the 2nd tri he started to get more excited and now he's loving on my belly every day. Don't worry, it'll come.

  4. Yes, don't buy nursing bras until the end, one cup size bigger, or even wait until after your milk comes in.
    I found that what was comfortable during pregnancy, in terms of around my chest, is now a smaller size after birth, but still bigger than before pregnancy. Should have bought a smaller bra with bigger cup size.
    None of this helped me with my dislike of bras. :)

  5. Yay 11 weeks!!

    My husband was super involved in the first trimester because I was making him buy me nausea-relief things constantly, and he had to do all the cooking and cleaning and back-rubbing because I was SOOOOOOoooooooo nauseous! But I guess that is a case-by-case thing, and I'm glad you aren't having that experience!

    Once I started to show, my husband I think felt way more involved. He was able to see my belly growing and talk to the babies and feel connected to them once he could feel them kicking.

  6. Honestly, I don't thin my husband was that connected until the baby was born. He knew there was a baby in there and he was excited, but it didn't really click at all until we found out the gender and even then he didn't seem as attached as I was until after he saw her on the outside. I've been told that's pretty normal. He's a great father now, so I guess everything worked out fine.

  7. I'm catching up on my blog reading / commenting from last week when I was out of commission for my FET but just wanted to say congrats on 11 weeks! I can't wait for you to start telling people and I can't wait to read about it. :)


It is always exciting finding new comments! I really love knowing you were here!
