11 Weeks

I am feeling SO much better these days! I am still really tired, but the nausea has subsided I do believe! I am craving good, healthy foods---like desperately need Thursday to get here so I can stock up on fruits/veggies from our CSA/Farmer's market.  I am dying to juice!! I need lemons, ginger, greens, beets, apples--in ma belly!

Tuesday we had a checkup to hear the heartbeat--so I took some photos to document.

I then went back and found the photo of myself I took on the first day we heard Brooke's little heartbeat.  I wore the same skirt for good luck ;)

I think I'm already carrying a little differently, but I also know that I weighed almost 10 pounds less when I got pregnant this time than I did with Brooke. Since I was #stmartinbikinibody and all that jazz.

I don't think my rump is growing with my bump, so that's interesting!!!
On the way to the Dr, I was looking for a donation box for our clothes that have been riding around forever.  I had NO idea one of these bad boys opened up right around the corner from my Dr's.

So. Good!  I hadn't had one since college. I only got one and it was totally worth it.

I got a little frustrated because we waited a half an hour for the Dr…and trying to entertain a 17 month old who hates sitting still, was rather tricky.  We played peek-a-boo, I changed her diaper, she watched MMC, and ate snacks.

All for a 2 min checkup to hear the most amazing little sound of a new heartbeat.  It was 155 and totally made me tear up.

I actually worked out yesterday too which is amazing because I have felt so terrible these last few weeks.  I can totally feel it today!  My thighs are burning, my arms and back are sore and I am ready to just rest, since we just spent the day at the Museum of Play. 

I'm excited to get into the second trimester and continue to watch the bump grow!  I definitely show earlier than others, but this time I definitely feel like I have a baby belly now.  How fun!  Do you find that most people show early or most show late? I always compare my bump to others...

Here's a vlog I made on Sunday updating my pregnancy.
