How far along? 11 weeks today (Crap, missed week 10’s update)
Total weight gain? About 1.5 kgs so far
Maternity Clothes? Nothing yet
Stretch Marks? Still no new ones yet
Sleep: Sleep is on and off. I struggle to get comfortable on either side and sleeping on my back hurts my neck. I feel like I need to start using a pillow under my belly already but I don’t want to start too early. 😦
Best moment this week: This would have to be seeing our blob in 24 Jan 🙂
Worst moment this week: Our car was rammed from behind, then it refused to ride properly and it’s taken 2 weeks and countless Rands to finally get it running today. We must still get the damage fixed 😦
Miss Anything? My stable moods
Movement: Nada. I don’t want to sound like a crazy person every time I think I feel something and then it’s just gas or my bowels moving or whatever. So for now, no definite movements felt yet.
Food cravings: Granny Smith apples cut up with salt over, koeksisters for breakfast, litchies
Anything making you queasy or sick: I can finally manage some coffee again and there’s nothing specific that makes me queasy. Just a whole bunch of everything lol
Gender: I think I’m going to struggle with this one. I want to keep the sex a surprise but I also want to know as I am really hoping for a little sister for Matthew. Let’s see how long I last with not knowing
Labor Signs: Nope, not yet
Symptoms: Slight tummy cramps, saw neck and back muscles, sore boobs, and still this sharp pain in my groin when I move too fast
Belly Button in or out? Still in for now but I have this insanely deep navel, and it seems to have come out quite a bit
Wedding rings on or off? Still on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
What I’m looking forward to: My next appointment (28 Feb) and having the detailed scan (Down Syndrome scan)
What I’m nervous about: Another gallstone attack. I had one on Saturday (which actually started on Friday as bad back pain) and it seems that even though I’ve cut out my red meat consumption, my elevated stress levels can also trigger an attack.
Thoughts: I just want to enjoy this pregnancy as much as possible with as little complaining as I can manage. This might be our last baby and I don’t want to miss out or bitch about anything. So the uncomfortable sleep, the back and neck pain, the nausea, whatever else I am feeling with relation to this pregnancy, is not worth complaining about.
