Pregnancy Update – Week 11

(Another entry from my ‘hidden’ pregnancy diary…) How far along? 11 weeks 3 days How big is baby? Farewell berries, hello citrus fruit! This week we have ourselves a little lime. week11 How I’m feeling? This has been a rather strange week, as I have been back at work and had more time to focus on how I am feeling (rather than being distracted by my overseas travels). Each day this week I have developed a lingering headache by the end of the day, which I attributed to my lack of afternoon nap? Speaking of which, my fatigue is still hitting hard, and I am generally in bed by 8.30pm each evening. Crazy right!   IMG_2163  Weight? down 0.3kg from last week. Strange…. How I’m changing? This was a big week for me in terms of mental change. While I still have moments of disbelief, I can tell that my anxiety is slowly starting to lessen. I even felt comfortable heading back to the gym this week, and although it was only for short workouts, the positive effect it had on my mood was indescribable. After almost 2 months of little to no ‘gym’ workouts, this girl was in heaven. I’ll have to post about my approach to pregnancy exercise sometime soon. What I miss? Being able to do up my jeans comfortably lol.  I can get them done up….just…..but are far from comfortable when done up. I see an investment in a belly band sometime soon 😉   IMG_2165 Symptoms? Fatigue, headaches and hunger. Insatiable hunger. More of the same really 😉 Cravings? I don’t know whether it was due to the cooler temperatures that greeted me on my return to Australia, or whether it was a pregnancy craving per se, but this week I was craving rich, comfort meals – loaded with carbs and vegetables. Hence the re-appearance of risottos, soups and stews on the blog. IMG_2079 But hey, given that some of my previous cravings have included fried chicken, I am taking this latest craving which at least includes some vegetables, as being a positive one! Food Aversions? Nothing springs to mind. Highlights this week? Oh my goodness this was a wonderful week. Mr BBB and I met with our Obstetrician and saw our little jelly bean lime measuring spot on for 11 weeks with a good strong heartbeat.  The relief and happiness we felt was indescribable! And, clearly not one to sit around, baby BBB put on quite a show for us during the scan, doing flips and somersaults for our viewing pleasure. It was seriously one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Sadly we didn’t get any pictures, but I have another scan next week at 12 weeks so hopefully we get one then!
