[week eleven]

Ta-da! I have returned to the bump-picture world. Thanks to your lovely comments about just being happy with my body the way it is and relishing in each stage of my pregnancy I have been inspired to take bump-photos. So here I am... week 11. Sans bump, just pudge...but happy!

Symptoms with my fig-sized spud....
  • I am feeling less nauseated- yay!! Man, that was exhausting being sick 24-7.
  • I am still fatigued but looking forward to when I get that energy back.
  • Peeing all the time, even waking up to pee- that's unusual for me because I sleep o-so very hard.
  • And now I have some intermittent low back pain- sacrum pain. I hear it's the ligaments stretching. So if it enables me to push out a babe in 7 months- then great. Stretch on.
  • I stepped on the scale yesterday...I haven't gained a pound. Ha. I beg to differ. The weight must have re-distributed my face, chest, and abdomen.
  • Eat more protein. This one is hard for me- meat does not sound appetizing and I am normally not a huge fan of meat. Matt drew me a cute picture from spud-in-utero pleading with me- "mom"- to please eat more protein so he/she doesn't grow up to be a wuss. Ha! Breaks my heart. I need more protein.
  • Start up yoga at 2nd trimester (which is 3 weeks away!!) and continue with aqua fit weekly.
  • Focus on eating healthfully and at home now that I can adventure outside of my bland-carb diet.
  • No stress...I've been doing great with this one, perhaps it's all the sleeping and not worrying about getting pregnant.


  1. eeeeep! You look so happy and lovely!

  2. you really are glowing! I am glad you decided to take these photos. xo

  3. Rock it. You will look back on that picture and marvel at how skinny you look. Promise.

  4. love!! I'm happy that i took weekly bump pictures - it's amazing what our bodies are capable of doing!!!

  5. You look so cute! I am glad you decided to take and post pictures, you will be so thankful in the end. I am bummed I didn't get a picture of my belly from delivery, it was a quick decision and not really time for pictures. I am guessing girl if you have been feeling sick. Are you going to find out what you are having or are you going to keep it a surprise? Keep the bump pictures coming :)


Thank you so much for your comments!! I love hearing what you have to say...
