Eleven weeks! My weekly update email said baby is about the size of a small peach this week and I just happened to have a peach in my fridge to see for myself. And while it may only be 2 inches long, little sprout is fully formed, opening and closing his/her little fists, hiccuping, and doing somersaults in its water home. I have to wait another month or so to start feeling those bubbles and kicks and I cannot wait.
I seem to have escaped the morning sickness aspect of pregnancy again, but I'm still finding myself so tired in the middle of the day. I take a nap with Cruz almost every afternoon and find myself lacking the motivation and energy to do a whole lot around the house. I'm starting to think the whole nesting thing is part of God's plan for pregnant women to make up for the first trimester!
I very definitely have a baby bump, much more prominent than I was with Cruz at 11 weeks. Depending on the outfit, I think it's getting a little hard to disclose! My appointment is in two weeks and we have plans to spill our baby secret after that.
