11 Weeks

(This is one of a series of scheduled posts that I've written since I found out that Jacob and I were expecting our first child.  The original composition date is included below).

Sept 27:

Size of baby: According to, our little one is about the size of a walnut!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: About 7 pounds =(

Maternity Clothes: Not yet… but it’s making my winter wear planning difficult.  I need some new clothes, but I hate to buy anything that I won’t’ fit into in a few months… but at the same time, I don’t want to buy maternity stuff before I actually need to! lol

Gender: 50% chance of either! =)

Movement: I read somewhere that women at my stage MAY feel their baby move but assume that it’s indigestion.  So, maybe? =)

What I miss: Being a “regular” person.  I am not a fan of having a lot of attention on me, and ever since I started telling friends/family/coworkers that I’m expecting there’s been a LOT of attention.  I just want to be “Brittney” for right now.

Sleep:  Still sleeping quite well, with the exception of the nightly bathroom break.

Symptoms: Not a whole lot… I’m feeling pretty good actually.

Cravings: No real cravings… sometimes I wonder if I’m actually pregnant.  It seems to be going a lot “easier” so far than I anticipated! lol

Best Moment this week: Back fence was finished this weekend!  That, in combination with going on a walk/”happy hour” with a friend (I drank a Coke) and having some “girl time”, were the highlights of my week.  Oh!  Jacob’s 30th birthday party at Bullwinkle’s Family Fun Center was pretty awesome, too! =)

What I am looking forward to: I just booked Jacob and I a weekend getaway in November at Crescent Lake Resort… I’m looking forward to THAT! =)

I don't think cravings are a 'must' for being pregnant. I never did any late night food runs or wanted weird things.
