Diary Of A Pregnant Gal || Week 11

8.20.2014
Baby is the size of a Brussel Sprout!
 
All of a sudden, Baby Mills has made a slight appearance and I couldn't be loving it more! Although it's a tiny bump and hardly noticed by strangers, it's precious to me. Knowing my sweet babe is growing day by day and is turning into the special baby God designed for Jon and I is heart warming.

I knew there were going to be specific changes that happened throughout my pregnancy between having pregnant friends, reading books and blogs. But I never anticipated the changes would happen so abruptly! I almost don't know it's happened 

Feeling | My energy is back in full swing and I'm loving it. I heard this only lasts for the second trimester so I need to take advantage while I have it. The nausea has really disappeared, but I've noticed something has taken it's place. Hormones. Lord have mercy, they are killer. So far I have cried about a set of sheets in my guest room and dog hair being on everything. Also I get impatient and short with Jon for absolutely no reason. I know I'm being crazy when these hormones wave over me, but I can't help it! Looney bins can't get a grip.

Sleep | Ohhh how my sleep has changed. I'm actually getting a full night's sleep now, minus the bathroom breaks thanks to my Bumpnest! This pillow has seriously changed my sleep into something wonderful. Hubby keeps threatening to steal it, but he knows I might cry if he does, literally.

Body Changes | The bump is sticking out now just a tad and I LOVE looking down at it. I think the first few weeks of pregnancy, especially when you find out as early as we did (5 weeks), is really hard because you are experiencing a world of symptoms, but there is no physical reminder you are pregnant.

Appetite | I'm always hungry. Always. The cravings are pretty consistent and I've learned if I don't give into them, the desire will only get stronger. I was dreaming about Dippin' Dots for days, but I was determined I could go without eating them. Well that was a mistake. Every night I was whining to Jon about how they were all I could think about. They are only sold at the mall here which is completely out of the way. So Sunday I decided I couldn't do it anymore. I had to get them off my mind. And just like that, with one small, satisfactory bowl of Dippin' Dots my fix was fulfilled and I haven't thought about them since. So pregnant ladies, give into your cravings. You have 9 months and that seems far too long to battle.

Fun Fact | Baby is growing fingernails & toenails and distinct facial features are set such as ears, nose, eyes, lips! And if it's a girl, she is growing ovaries already!

Reading | What To Expect When You're Expecting & Belly Laughs. Both great reads!

  12. These updates make me so happy! I love reading how you and your sweet babe are doing. It also makes me reminisce about when I was pregnant with Joshua.

    Haha, those hormones are the worst. Yikes. I thought I was bad when I was pregnant, but I was 10x more hormonal and ridiculous for those first few months postpartum. I feel like Dustin kind of deserves an award for putting up with me. You'll probably feel the same way about Jon when you're done. :)
