Week 11

Week 11 already! One more week and I'll be in the 2nd trimester. My next OB appointment is April 10th and I look forward to hearing the heartbeat again and getting to hear how many bpms it is!

No new symptoms to report. Just a ton of indigestion (no heartburn but honestly are either very fun?), peeing like there's no tomorrow, fatigue... The nausea is ebbing away but it wasn't unbearable to begin with. Honestly I don't really feel pregnant except when I accidently hurt myself from moving or bending wrong.

When pregnant with my girls I'd have a hard time getting through breakfast because I'd feel so sick. I'm able to snarf down my bowl of cereal with the tiniest bit of queasiness that goes away quickly.

Maybe it is a boy! I go back and forth. When I dream or think of baby I sometimes thinks "he" or "him". But it's just so foreign to me. I've only had girls and "girl parts" to deal with. We plan to circumsize if we do have a boy and so then I start worrying about all of that. But I'm not as sick and they say you're not as sick with boys usually.

Everyone else has started saying that is their opinion, that little one will be a boy, but I'm going to stick with my prediction. I've had a good guessing streak the past couple of days checking out pregnancy blogs! But I'll probably be wrong. I thought Bumble Bee was a boy. I can't remember if I had an opinion on what Butterfly would be; I do know I was terrified she'd be born a boy and I had cleaned all the pink clothes!

Not much else to report. Hoping to get some more spring cleaning in.

Oh, and the girls planted sunflower seeds in pots for Bumble Bee's birthday as party favors. Can I just say these things grow SUPER fast?! I watered them last night and this morning they had grown almost a full inch! These are "mammoth" sunflowers (the ones that grow like 10 feet tall) so I guess it is no surprise! I'll post pictures of the little [big] seedlings tomorrow when there's enough natural light to take pics.

:) I wish I could say that my morning sickness was better this time, than it was when I was pregnant with my daughter. However, I had the same, if not worse morning sickness during my first trimester and we are having a boy. I am excited to hear what you are having when you do eventually find out. The waiting seems likes forever doesn't it? :)

I feel I am just now starting to feel sick - comes and goes during the day. Something I didn't expect for sure...being in the second trimester.

I have two boys and one girl. Boys are easier during diaper changes because you don't have to worry about wiping down. And as for being sick, each pregnancy for me was worst then the one before it.

I hope you feel better soon. :D

I still don't have a "feeling" about whether you're having a boy or a girl! It'll come to me though. :-)

Sunflowers are so cool! That was a neat idea for Bumble Bee's party! When my kids are old enough I'm definitely going to be asking you to help plan their parties. :-)

I love the sunflower idea. I think I may have to use that for party favors sometime. :-D

I am glad you are not feeling as sick this time around. I hope we can plant our sunflowers this week. Ours have really taken off too.

I was more sick with my middle child than the other 2 and he was a boy. Also, the only thing you have to remember about the "boy parts" is to point that little guy down and you'll be okay!=)
