Hey guys! I’m here with another weekly pregnancy update. I love writing these posts because they make me reflect on how my body is changing and how I’m doing in general. I hope you enjoy these posts too!
Here’s a picture I took today and I think I’m starting to see a little bump, what do you think?
Week 11 details
How far along: 11 weeks and 4 days
Baby’s size: The size of a fig, over 1 and a 1/2 inches from head to bottom.
Weight gained: None since last week. I think my body is finally getting into the groove of things and my appetite has gone down a bit. I have an appointment on Tuesday so I’ll be sharing my “official” weight gain next week.
Stretch marks: None. I’ve been rubbing body butter on my belly once a day.
Symptoms: I’ve been feeling a little better since I’m nearing the end of the 1st trimester, but I’m still tired, bloated and feel a little nausea if I don’t eat regularly. Frequent bathroom trips are still going strong!
Food cravings: Ice cream and bread with olive oil and salt, can’t get enough!! I had real ice cream on Friday with my sister and it tasted SO good.
Food aversions: Nothing really, but food at night doesn’t sound too good right now. I’m mostly having eggs and toast or other breakfast-y items for dinner.
Movement: Not yet!
Maternity clothes: Same as last week. A couple of pants and the rest are all jon maternity. I’m ordering a couple new pants from gap maternity since mine are still too big.
Belly button: Still in, but I think it wants to come out soon. My belly button never went totally in after my first pregnancy.
Wedding rings: On
Next Prenatal appointment: Tuesday!
Last week I’ve felt like my energy is making a come back! I had a great running week last week, totalling 29 miles! The farthest I ran was 6.5 miles and I averaged about 5 miles a day. So happy!
This week I’m also doing pretty well on the fitness front and here’s what I’ve been doing:
Monday- 5 miles in 44 min and some light arm weights
Tuesday- 5 miles in 42 min
(I had to use the bathroom so the run was done in two parts.)
Wed: 2 slow miles and 20 min on the stationary bike, abs
There’s a race coming up on October 13 and I’m thinking of participating with Rob. There’s a 10k and 1/2 marathon, but I’ll be doing the 10k. I’ll be 14 weeks pregnant by then and don’t want to push myself into running 13.1 miles.
Well, there you have it, another pregnancy update! I can’t believe I have another week under my belt. Time really flies!
Hope you have a great week!
