11 weeks, 3 days

Week and day: 11 weeks, 3 days

Belly Button in or out: in, but amazingly shallow!  My button didn't pop until I was around 30 weeks with the TWINS and I feel very close already this time!

Wedding rings on or off: on and I plan to keep it that way for as long as possible since I JUST PUT THEM back on after my pregnancy with the girls.

Food cravings: red meat, watermelon and orange soda.

Food aversions: I still can't even think about chicken casserole.  It was the last thing I ate before we had the "stomach bug", which turned into the beginning of my morning sickness.

Nausea: Oh yes!  Much more than I had with the girls.  Although, with the girls I would feel nauseous and then throw up and have some relief.  I haven't actually thrown up with this pregnancy (other than the day of the stomach bug).  So I never get a break!  Its all day sickness and gets really, really bad every 3-4 hours, a snack usually helps it.

Energy level: EXHAUSTED!  More so than with the girls.  Some days I take 2 naps!!

Weight gain: I don't think any.  At least not according to the docs scales.

Mood: Happy!  How can you not be happy when there is a miracle growing in your belly?!?

Maternity clothes: Shoo-wee, buddy!  I ditched normal clothes as fast as I could!  I'm fully embraced my comfy, cozy maternity wardrobe!

Size of baby: fig

Changes of baby:  My baby is "now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.  She's already busy kicking and stretching,"  From -- which is why they referred to the baby as "she".

Next appointment: May 7th.  Regular check-up with the doc and we'll hear the baby's heartbeat.

Other:  This pregnancy is such a miracle!  I praise God every day for his goodness!  I am loving every day of this pregnancy.  With the girls I was just so anxious to meet them I didn't take the time to truly enjoy every day of the pregnancy.  This time, I'm loving and savoring each and every day!  I can't wait to feel my little love move around, but I'm not rushing it!  Right now I'm FULLY enjoying the nausea!!  :)

I feel like I need to start embracing my pregnancy...I don't wanna be so worried the whole time I forget to enjoy the miracle God has created.

Hopefully the nausea will start to subside soon...this second trimester stuff is fabulous! :)
