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