How far along? 11 weeks pregnant today.
Due date? The 10th June 2016
How is baby doing? Baby is the size of a fig. It’s finger nails are beginning to form . At some point this week blood will begin circulating between the uterus and the foetus and the placenta will begin to function. The baby looks more human now with a visible neck, straighter back and thicker skin. Although the head is almost as big as the baby’s body.
Maternity clothes: No maternity clothes purchased or worn yet. Although I am living in leggings.
Stretch marks: No stretch marks.
Sleep: I feel like I have been having some very strange dreams this week, which probably means I am not sleeping as deeply.
Best moment this week: I made a new friend this week who is 9 weeks pregnant. I’m looking forward to going on this pregnancy journey together.
Miss anything? Not yet. I don’t think I have had to give up anything yet. Except food. Oh I did have to forgo my usual pate starter at the works Christmas do which was annoying.
Movement: No baby movement yet.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: I felt a little nauseous this morning before I ate my breakfast but I still have not felt that sick. Morning sickness wasn’t that bad with Rosalie though so I’m not too worried. Pregnancy spots have got a lot better this week. I hope they are on their way out! I’m still having serious temperature control issues. I feel hot all the time.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not particularly
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
How I feel? I feel good, tired but good. We have our scan. And then it will be Christmas. And then I’ll be firmly in my 2nd trimester.
Looking forward to: Next week’s 12 week scan and having our due date confirmed.
Update – I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks and 3 days based on the doctor’s original calculations, you can read about it here. Doctors advised my hormone levels at the time of miscarriage suggested I was only 6/7 weeks pregnant.
