Week 11: "Fig"

[Bebito], just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Bebito's hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under his/her gums, and some of his/her bones are beginning to harden. [Bebito] is already busy kicking and stretching, and his/her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as his/her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. [I] won't feel [my] baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will [I] notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that his/her diaphragm is forming. (http://www.babycenter.com/)

My parents, Josie, and her boyfriend all came down for a visit this past weekend. I was worried how I would feel, but I seemed to do okay Friday and Saturday. I was glad because we went to a Brewers game on Friday night and then Jeff, Amy, Mikayla, and Tia came Saturday for dinner and I was able to join them. But then I think it caught up with me on Sunday because I was pretty sick all day Sunday, Monday, and today. Teirney and I did manage to take a walk last night, which was nice. I'm hoping I'll be feeling well enough tonight to get out for another walk.

Not to gross anyone out, but the past two days I've been most sick after eating lunch. Teirney comes home for lunch everyday, so he has had the unpleasant experience of eating lunch with me and then watching me lose it. It has been really very frustrating. But as long as everything is okay with the baby, I can survive this no problem.

My appointment with the new midwife got moved up to September 2. Assuming all goes well, I'll be 12 weeks at my next appointment and done with the first trimester. Woohoo! I also have an appointment with an endocrinologist on September 22. I wish it could be a little sooner, but that was earliest they could get me in. I'll keep you posted on how things are going.
