11 weeks-wow

How have I been feeling?... Well, generally pretty good this past week except over the weekend I had a POUNDING headache. I did nothing because it was just horrible. I laid on the couch with a warm wash cloth on my forehead and a heating pad on my neck. My Dr. said I could take Tylenol but that they didn't recommend any medications until after 12 weeks. Also, Tylenol does NOTHING for me so I decided to just wait it out. I really hope I don't have one this weekend.

What am I looking forward to.... A good friend's wedding this Saturday. I really hope I feel good.

Any weight gain yet? Nope, I think I'm back to my prepregnancy weight. YAY! All this healthy food is paying off!

How big is baby?... The size of a lime. He or she currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future. Also, his or her hands will soon open and close into fists and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

Sleep?... Last night was horrible. I tossed and turned all night. I think I'm in need of a body pillow already. Is it too early? EH, I think not. Whatever it takes to sleep good, right? Maybe even a BIGGER bed, now that sounds like heavy!

Emotions... Still crying a lot! haha I just can't seem to help it.

Health... Very good, I've been eating healthy which in turn is keeping me healthy. Who needs a flu shot? NOT ME!!!!!

Cravings...Mac 'n' Cheese still. haha I haven't had it since last week though. And popsicles but I try to eat them a lot as I know...not very good.

Food Aversions...'s been making me gag and that's really sad for me. I LOVE chicken and could eat it every day. Actually, most foods make me want to throw up. The thought of Pei Wei makes me gag. haha And before getting pregnant, I LOVED Pei Wei.

New sensation.... Well, my boobs have definitely started growing. *sigh* Not looking forward to buying new bra's AT ALL!!

Next appointment... November 1st and my Mom will be here so she gets to go with me! That's very exciting for both of us AND I'll be 13 weeks. YAY! This will also mark the day that I will finally announce this on Facebook. It's been killing me and I'm sick of people asking me when it's going to happen. Luckily no one (that knows) has said anything, which I'm completely shocked about that.

And here are my pictures!
