Pregnancy at 11 Weeks

How's the baby growing:

I was reading the article from babycenter.com about Pregnancy week by week and here's what I found out what's going on with my 11th week pregnancy which began yesterday.

It said that mybaby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, 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. 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 her diaphragm is forming.

How's Life changing:

According to the article it said if I am like most women, I should be feeling a bit more energetic now and my nausea may be starting to wane. Unfortunately, I may also be suffering from constipation (caused by hormonal changes, which can slow digestion) and heartburn (hormones again, relaxing the valve between your stomach and esophagus). But all of this discomfort is for a good cause.

If nausea has made it impossible for me to eat a wide variety of healthy foods or if I haven't put on much weight yet (most women gain just 2 to 5 pounds during the first trimester). My appetite will likely return soon, and I will start to gain about a pound a week.

Well, so far my appetite is doing ok. Although I'm the usual kind of person who doesn't eat a lot but somehow I have been eating a little bit more and have gained a bit also. I weighed myself yesterday and I am now 94.4 lbs the heaviest I got so far in my entire life. Ha,ha,...

Below is a photo of how the baby should look like inside my tummy.
