11 weeks

How Far Along: 11 weeks
How Big are the Babies? The size of a small lime.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down about 7 pounds. It looks like I've gained a pound this week. Maybe because I've been off the metformin or maybe it was all that yummy Superbowl food :)
Maternity Clothes: When I wear pants other than sweats, they are almost always maternity jeans. My regular jeans still work on occasion, but they get pretty uncomfortable if I eat much. 
Gender: I cannot wait to find out!
Movement: I'm so excited to feel them!
Sleep: I'm still tired, but the exhaustion seems to be letting up a little. I'm also starting to sleep better at night.
Belly button in or out? In.
What I miss: Nothing! I'm in awe of my body everyday!
Milestones: First freak out. There was just a little spotting at 10w3d, but nothing since. 
Food Cravings:  I can't think of anything specific, but I'd do just about anything for a REALLY good doughnut!
Aversions: Still just eggs.
Symptoms: Still the same... nausea if I let myself get too hungry, fatigue, dizziness, constipation, sore nipples and a healthy dose of heartburn after eating pretty much anything.
Best Moment this week: My first OB appointment and getting a quick blurry look at the babes.
Funny Moment: I can't think of anything this week!
Tip of the Week: Don't forget to eat and drink A LOT of water!
What I'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward watching and feeling these babies grow more and more. And, I'm counting down the days until our next ultrasound... FOUR.MORE.WEEKS.

Yes, always keep your belly full and that should help with the nausea. Glad you are able to get better sleep at night too.

Congrats on 11 weeks! :) I can't believe you have 4 more weeks until you get to see them again, that's crazy! Glad the spotting has stopped, hope it stays that way.

Yay for reaching 11 weeks! You are strong for waiting 5 weeks between ultrasounds. I think my OB realized I would be a spaze if I waited that long.
I originally thought that I would be ready to tell people at 12 weeks but, with that being tomorrow I’m still not ready. My husband too is ready to announce it from the roof top but I’m not there yet! Every day I feel a little more confident so hopefully in the next few weeks I will be ready.

Isn't it crazy how long we have to wait between appts now?! My next appt is at the end of Feb, no ultrasound, next ultrasound for me is at 18 weeks March 15!!!
