Pregnancy Update: 11 Weeks

Click HERE to enter my GIVEAWAY! If you've already entered, that's okay too! Enter again to increase your chances of winning :D Keep entering until July 31, 2011.

I am almost at the 12 week mark! How time flies! When I tell a lot of people how huge I'm getting, they think I'm overreacting. Really, I'm not. I don't remember showing as quick as I am right now. I feel 5 months pregnant LMAO! My stomach is pretty big for almost 3 months, atleast IMO. I've grown since the last time I took a belly shot which was around 8 weeks.

Can you guys see the difference?

So let's see what I've been up to the past few weeks of pregnancy. Cravings? Nothing in particular. In the beginning it was Spinach & Colby Jack Cheese Omelettes. I haven't had those in a while though. I know I've been craving noodles a lot, but what's new? I crave those regardless if I'm pregnant or not LOL. Well maybe I crave Nectarines a little more than I usually do. I don't like them soft though. They need to have that 'crunch' to them or I won't eat them. Nobody said that pregnant women were easy to please haha.

As for my symptoms, well, I've been soooooooo exhausted! Every morning when I eat breakfast, I feel the need to fall asleep right away. I try not to because that's how you gain HELLA weight. I honestly can't stay up. I'm just lazy & tired. That sucks because it interferes with my ability to workout. I try my best to go walking when I can but the laziness makes everything 10x harder. It's said that fatigueness tends to die down during the second trimester. I hope so. If so, I'll be incorporating more exercise into my daily schedule. Work is also getting a little harder even though I'm still in my first trimester. The backaches are starting to take a toll on me. If there's 2 things I absolutely despise about being pregnant, they are: BACKACHES & the 1 million bathroom breaks you take in a day. I promise you though, the payoff is rewarding!

As for weight gain, I've gained 6 pounds so far -- or atleast that's what our bathroom scale tells me every morning ;P I can tell that I've gained some weight. It shows on my face LOL. My clothes has also gotten tighter. DUH! It's really snug around my belly area. I don't plan on buying any maternity clothing. I'm just gonna wear loose, flowy dresses/clothing :)

I have another check up coming up on Friday. I can't wait. I will update you guys with more photos & info soon! And if any of you are expecting Mothers, download the Baby Bump app if you have a droid or iPhone. I love that app. I'm on it daily :) See you guys in my next post.

Hey, you're only 3 weeks ahead of me! I'm coming up in 8 weeks right now haha. Thankfully I'm not showing at all - but my waist line has totally dissappeared which is annoying. My sides are just straight up and down now!

I have actually LOST 3lbs but that is because I have been sick as a dog and hardly able to eat anything besides cucumbers, plain noodles with salt and corn on the cob. SUPER NUTRITIONAL lol.

I would gladly take your 6lbs for a few days without throwing up. Trade?
