11 weeks!

Baby we’ve made it to 11 weeks today! Ahhh, I’m so thrilled. I love hearing your beautiful little heartbeat on the doppler. You just seem so happy and content haha. I feel like these weeks are going by so slowly but then when I think about the fact that I’m nearly 3 months pregnant already and only have about 6 more months to go…well that puts it in a little bit of perspective. 🙂

This is what you look like from the outside this week.

It’s going to be getting a little more difficult to conceal you in a few weeks! But I guess by then we will be ready to officially “come out” woohoo!

Symptoms: Slight ickiness, food aversion, uternie stretching pains, very tender breasts, extreme fatigue, irritability and emotional/hormonal

This is what babycenter.com says about your development this week:

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

She’s already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won’t feel your baby’s acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

Happy 11 weeks monkey!!

About Em

After the loss of our first pregnancy, we took a much needed vacation to Costa Rica to enjoy each other and clear our minds. Well, as luck would have it, we brought home much more than great memories and great tans...our own little Costa Rican souvenir. Here is our journey!

    Another milestone Baby Em! I’m counting the days and the weeks of your development. Mommy is doing a great job. When I talked to her today she is already thinking about you and planning her journey as a brand new mom. You’ll love her!. She has been the sweetest daughter, so I’m sure she will make a very cool mom. You’ll see. You have a pretty cool Dad too; although you have not heard much about him yet…
    Well, here, at Grandma Em’s home all we do is talk about you and fantasize about the future having you around. It will be so much fun.
    Your Titi Ivsar is here today. She had not realized that she could also blog with and for you, so she stated she will check out the web and write with an inspiration for you.
    Sweet dreams for now….
    In another week, you’ll have another graduation…..

    Love,
    Grandma Em
