Belly One: Week Eleven

While we were taking the haircut pictures on Monday we got the first belly picture too.

(just a little bulge!)

I'm 11 weeks pregnant today.

Baby is about two inches long; approximately the size (if not the weight!) of my thumb!
I am solidly into maternity clothing because my regular clothing won't fit, but I do have to stick with the adjustable ones that can be snugged down a bit, because the non-adjustable things fall down! This is probably the most frustrating part of pregnancy: I look bigger, but not obviously pregnant, so unless I wave a sign most folks probably just think I've gained weight. I am starting to feel better (which is nice) but I can't feel movement yet, so I don't have any kind of ongoing assurance that all is well.
Meanwhile, here's a little more from baby-gaga about what the littlest wild thing is up to right now:
The little one is already starting to explore their body, focusing most intently on touching their head, and especially their face and mouth. Their mouth in particular will provide them with hours of entertainment. This happens not only because your baby is gaining coordination, and is therefore able to move a hand on command, but also because their palms have gained sensation and can actually “feel” what it touches.They're also developing their swallow reflex this week. And lastly, your baby's smelling and other olfactory senses will begin developing this week, which when combined with the maturing taste buds, will provide your baby with their first experiences of taste and smell.

So cute! And that baby development info is cool to learn. We continue to pray for your pregnancy and that your husband will find the right job in the right place--soon. Keep us posted!

I HATE that point in pregnancy! I don't look pregnant forever except after I eat if I relax all my muscles. And then I just look all bloated/fat ;)

I love belly pictures. That first part, though, where you just look fat and not pregnant is the worst. I hope everything continues to go well for you.

That baby gaga info is fascinating! So it's about week 11 that something went wrong for me and I never developed smell...well, better that than be a thalidimide baby with no arms...

Congrats!

Congratulations! It's always nice to start feeling better after the first weeks of yucky.

Hugs,

Yay! How exciting! You're adorable. :)

That whole is-she-pregnant-or-just-hitting-the-Twinkies-too-hard phase isn't my favorite... :) It's all for a good cause, though. I'm glad you're starting to feel better, too.

I'm at the same stage as well. You might not remember but I found your blog right after i miscarried in January and left a comment and got pregnant right after that. It's good to know I'm not the only one going through all this. You're a very cute pregnant mommy :)
Best wishes.
