11 weeks

How far along?  11w2d

Total weight gain?  I finally ended up weighing myself on my mom's Fitbit scale and I was at 114, I'm guessing I have maybe only gained a couple pounds if even that because that's been about my weight for the last several years.  I am planning to weigh myself weekly on that scale so I can keep track of what I'm gaining, I'd like to gain about 25 pounds.

Maternity Clothes?  None yet

Stretch Marks?  Nope

Sleep?  Sleep is getting better, energy is getting better, constant hunger is subsiding.

Best Moment this Week?  I didn't get to see the babe this week since our appointment was cancelled which was a total bummer.  However, my friend Jessica and I went and bought all the stuff for the gender reveal in just a few weeks and it was so fun.  It's going to turn out so cute!  Joe has been practicing with the bow & arrow to hit the paint filled balloon.  I filled yesterday's balloon with pink to test his reaction if it is a girl, we still have some work to do on that! :)

Have you told your friends?  Yes of course!  

Miss Anything?  I am slowly introducing caffeine back into my life.  I had my first cup of half & half this weekend and it was glorious.  I ended up doing 8oz of caffeinated and 8oz of decaffeinated just to see how my body would react and it helped with a headache I was having & also helped in the digestive department.

Movement?  Nothing yet.

Food Cravings?  Still craving carbs, but also finally feeling like I can control some of those urges and sticking to some healthier options now that I'm nearing the second trimester.

Anything make you queasy or sick?  Not a thing!  

Have you started to show?  Nothing yet, but I think it's coming in the next few eeks

Gender prediction?  Still going with boy!

Labor Signs?  No

Belly button in or Out?  In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or moody?  Moodiness is decreasing, finally!  I think everyone will be happy to see this symptom finally go away.

Looking forward to?  3D ultrasound & NxGen testing Monday!  I cannot wait to see the baby again. It will be the last time for 11 more weeks unless we have any issues.  And less than 3 weeks away from our gender reveal!  Lots of exciting things happening.  I have a lot of nursery ideas, but I'll feel like I can start making some solid plans once we know the gender.  I can't wait! 


  1. You look great girl! Glad to hear everything is going so great too! Yay for getting everything for the gender reveal party. The balloon idea is so fun! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. I can't wait to see all your gender reveal party details! So fun!

  3. I'm so jealous you're getting your energy back!!! I'm 20 weeks and 2 days and still so exhausted. We have our anatomy scan today and I can't wait. I already know we are having a girl but to hear them say it again will just be so much more reassuring and I really want to hear what they have to say about her growth and if they think she has Spina Bifida. Can't wait until your gender reveal!!!

  4. Can't wait to hear how the appointment went! You look great!

  5. a balloon filled with paint, how fun! can't wait to see, and see what you do with the nursery. so fun! good to hear the caffeine is helping and the moodiness is decreasing.

  6. Can't wait to hear about the 3D. Why are so many women pregnant and weigh way less than me. Haha, crazy!

  7. I didn't start to show with my first until I was 16 weeks. When I told people at work I was pregnant at 5 months they assumed I was 3. Lol!

  8. Congratulations! I didn't start showing until late in my second trimester then my babies took off in length. Sounds like a fun gender reveal!

  9. I cannot believe you will know the gender in 3 weeks! Eek, exciting times!

  10. You look gorgeous. Cant wait for the gender reveal!!

  11. Love seeing these pics and updates!!! I can't wait for your gender reveal!! Do you guys know the gender or are you going to be surprised as well?! Glad your feeling better! The second trimester is definitely the best. lol.

  12. I LOVE these updates SO SO SO MUCH!!! SO happy for you, Elena!

  13. The balloon idea sounds adorable. Caffeine is delicious, isn't it? I needed it, both for the digestive and sleep issues. I'm glad you're feeling better. You look great!
