11 weeks

Today I'm exactly 11 weeks pregnant. I've seen these little surveys on several people's blog, and I thought it would a good way to remember all the little fun details as we go. Being a second child myself, one of my big priorities for this pregnancy is to relish in an record as many little details as possible... not letting everything slip right by because I'm so busy and tired with a very active toddler. Matt surprised me with a second copy of the same little "belly book" I used with Kenna, which I loved for how fun & detailed it is. I really like the symmetry of having the same book for both pregnancies- I love looking back and comparing and seeing how many things there are that you notice right away with the second since you have a little better idea what to expect after having the first (ie: knowing what you're feeling when the baby first starts to move). Hopefully you're like me and like to hear the nitty gritty of other people's pregnancies... if not, we'll try not to get too baby-centric around here!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 11 weeks
Size of baby: the size of a fig- last week we called he/she "Baby Kumquat" and this week we've graduated to "Baby Fig!"
Total Weight Gain/Loss: no weight gain yet
Maternity Clothes: regular clothes, but going for my more flowy shirts
Gender: can't wait to find out!
Movement: none so far
What I miss: feta cheese
Sleep: lots of crazy dreams (I told Matt I should write them down & sell them as movie plots! They are that weird & crazy) & lots of getting up to pee already
Symptoms: tiredness is starting to wear off just a little!
Cravings: just hungry all the time
Best Moment this week: starting to move Kenna's stuff around to her big girl room- her room will stay the "nursery" for #2
What I am looking forward to: knowing boy/girl so we can start planning!

Can't wait to read more about your pregnancy! I, too, have tried very hard to record just as much in baby books, etc about Team 2 as I did with Team 1. It is harder, I'll admit, but worth it:)


congrats y'all....that is awesome news! God is great!

I'm totally going to have to do some surveys like this! It'll be fun tracking my pregnancy with yours!
