The Weekly Run-Down: 11

How Far Along: We're getting through week 11. This trimester is the longest one ever.

Size of baby: This week, baby is a lime. That seems quite big, especially compared to the blueberry/raspberry.

Random & Interesting Developmental Stuff:  Here's this week's run-down:

Did you know your baby can breathe underwater? She's doing it right now. At weeks 10 and 11, the foetus will start to inhale and exhale small amounts of amniotic fluid, which helps your baby's lungs to grow and develop. Also this week, your baby's ears are scooting up to the sides of his head. Sure, your baby's head is still disproportionally large compared to the rest of his body, but this will even out as he continues to grow and develop in the womb.
Total Weight Gain: I'm up 300g from last week, but still lower on my scales than the OB. Yay?

Sleep: Good news - my pregnancy body pillow is on the way. Until then? Still pretty average.

Symptoms: I'm really bloated this week. Tired, a few headaches, and lots and lots of cramping. That still worries me, of course, but I'm praying it's just my internal bits shifting around to make room for baby.

Cravings: I'm funny with food this week. I've wanted frozen drinks (ice crushes, slurpees) but that's it. Everything else, well, who knows. I decide I want something, make it/get it, eat three bites & decide I don't want it any more. I'm a fussy eater at the best of times, but never like this.

Gender: I'm still feeling boy.. hubby thinks so too.

Movement: Way too early yet.

Maternity Clothes: More stretchy clothes. Huzzah!

Milestones: Another week has gone by, so that's a positive in my eyes.

What I'm looking forward to: The magical 12-week mark.. and our NT scan. It's just a few days away, and I am so ridiculously anxious/excited to see if Baby Jag is growing the way he should be.

The belly: No real change this week. More bloat, not much baby!

You do look beautiful :) about the cramping, I recorded that I cramped all the time, especially around where you are. Honestly, I don't think the cramping has stopped, it's just kind of changed what it feels like. Now it's more like muscle-y sharp pains. Try not to let it worry you too much :)

I giggle every time I see the growth charts for pregnancy and they compare the baby to some kind of food!
