11 Weeks

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.  Psalm 139: 13-15


This little one is about the size of a large lime.  Although, if you saw my belly, you'd say a cantaloupe.  The baby swallows and urinates amniotic fluid, and the fluid is continually replaced.  Tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under the gums.  Baby is busy kicking and stretching....and I can't wait to feel it!


I am so glad to be nearing the end of the first trimester.  I am still dealing with all day nausea, but I'm still so thankful it's not as severe as all my previous pregnancies.  I'm praying that perhaps I'll begin to feel better around 12 or 13 weeks, as opposed to my usual 16-20 weeks.  It could happen!

I haven't been all that tired in the first trimester.  I've had some tired moments, of course, but overall, I feel fairly normal energy wise.  I am still nursing my sweet Amelia pretty often, so technically, I'm eating for three.  I have to really make sure I keep up with good nutrition so that everyone gets what they need.  I must be doing a good job of it since I am not experiencing fatigue.  Speaking of eating, I usually gain 10 pounds in the first trimester.  But so far, I've only gained 5.  And since I don't plan on gaining 5 more pounds in one week (though, for me it's quite possible), I should escape the first trimester with no more than a 5 to 6 pound gain.  Woohoo!

It's your turn!  Please share your pregnancy stats, or anything else that sounds good!

  1. Wow! You are doing great! Most of my weight gain is later in the pregnancy....and towards the end, it feels out of control....But I do gain a lot of water weight. It's crazy how it melts away within days of 25 pounds for me. Then I'm stuck with all the weight from shoving too many brownies into my mouth.... :)

    1. LOL! I hear you, Brandy! I don't usually gain much in the second trimester, but gain most of it in the third. Brownies, cookies...all things naughty, but sooo good! :)

      Then after baby arrives...I've got LOTS of running to do! ; )

  2. Thanks so much for linking up!

    Praise God for the nausea not being so bad this time! Hopefully it will also end a little sooner this time too!

    What's your secret to not be so tired? I'm beat this time around!!

    I've enjoyed checking out your blog! Your family is just beautiful!

  3. It's been a quiet week for you! Hope all is well.

    In the final countdown for our little guy... just 5 weeks left! Crazy how quickly it's all gone. Made a big change in our care, so it looks like this one will be a hospital delivery. :/ Pray that it will be a good experience, even though it's not my first choice!

    Don't think I'm gaining any weight right now... in fact, last I checked I had lost a pound or two. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I can NOT eat cookies and brownies! (I sure would love to!! I have a long list of things I plan on eating postpartum. LOL I'll probably gain weight after delivery! ;)

    Hope you are beginning to feel a bit better!
