11ish week update

11 weeks - it kinda feels crazy to be 11 1/2 weeks already. I have really started feeling better lately. As nausea subsides in rolls food aversions. I really struggle to eat meat and vegetables right now. Fruit and carbs are my goto. Im not starving yet but do have to eat regularly or I get nauseous.

Symptom Check:

  • Very emotional - everything makes me cry (songs, shows new and old, conversations, misunderstandings)
  • Bits of nausea but significantly better the past couple weeks
  • Constipation - the worst I've ever experienced - causing a hard protruding stomach
  • Acne - terrible horrible acne - could be because of what I'm eating
  • Sore nipples
  • Tender breasts
  • Pee all the time - seriously more then I remember at the end of pregnancy with the boys
Im glad to be feeling better. I am looking pregnant - way further than I should look. I think it has a lot to do with being bloated form the carbs (all I can stomach) and constipation. I haven't taken a belly pic yet and feel like I should. 

Leiland really interested in the baby. He loved when I read to him and tell him whats changing for the baby right now. I like showing him how big the baby is. This week its a lime. He's going to be so excited. He talks about how I eat and drink to help the baby grow. He seems to understand so much. Owen loved to kiss and hug my belly. He's been so clingy lately and just wants to be on top of me.

This week I experienced some slight bleeding/ spotting. It was first thing in the morning when I first went to the bathroom. It was in the mucus when I wiped. I went again a short bit later and there was a little more but not as much and nothing since. Ive been cramping but I just kind of attribute it to the constipation and belly aches. 

I love laying in bed holding my tummy. I can feel my uterus growing and I can feel a hard lump where I assume the baby sits. I'm still a little in shock that I am pregnant. I am blown away that this happened on its own. I'm so incredibly excited about this baby and how life is going to change in just 6 1/2 months. Its going to fly by.
