11 Weeks

I am 11 weeks now. The "morning" (24 hour) sickness is still lingering around, however not quite so severe. To this point I've actually managed to lose a couple of pounds because I haven't been able to keep much down. However, I'm sure I will pack on the pounds soon- and I can guarantee it whenever I have an appetite again :). I'm still tired all the time and have been trying to take it easy as to avoid any more problems.

I go back to the doctor this Thursday and I am hoping and praying that I/and the baby get a good report.

This was our little one at the last ultrasound.

And of course, an 11 week belly shot that many of you requested.

Below is a little information about the size of the baby and what he/she is doing now.

Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional.

Last, you know I have to share a picture of my cutie patootie with you too!

Don't you wish those websites would call "he/she" a baby instead of a fetus?? We love you and we are praying for you and your precious cargo!
