BABY STATS: Eleven Weeks !
How Far Along?
11 weeks 0 days
How Big Is The Little One?
The baby is the size of a fig and is twice the size it was two weeks ago.
Total Weight Gain / Loss?
I have not gained nor lost any pounds this week. Holding steady.
I can still wear my normal clothing. My maternity jeans are a bit big since my stomach is not big enough to hold them up yet.
I am experiencing middle of the night insomnia again, but not every night.
Best Moment of the Week?
I started planning my NYC baby shower this week. I am getting quotes from venues and have decided on a menu and theme so I am getting quotes in from caterers as well. My vision is an all white tea party (all white decor, food and clothing) and the theme is going to be Diamonds & Diapers. I am awaiting quotes from World Yacht, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Brooklyn Winery and a few restaurants. I checked with a tea room but their pricing is utterly ridiculous for what they are offering. The per person price should be 1/2 what they are asking plus they make you pay to reserve a room where your party is being held on top of the per person costs and a 20% gratuity. I am not paying out what a wedding would cost for a baby shower for 50-75 people ! I already have confirmation that Sprinkles NYC can host my event in the party room. I am having Make My Cake bake my all white cake with a blinged out ribbon around the cake and I am thinking of putting Swavroski crystal booties on the top of the cake. My guests will be eating cupcakes with a buttercream icing. I am having a small cake baked as decor and more or less for ME ! I LOVE cake lol.
Speaking of cakes, when I got back today from a day trip to a local island with my mom today, my friend who owns a bakery in Washington DC, had a Drunken Spiced Rum German Chocolate Cake. It was absolutely delicious ! Tastes just like my recipe and can you believe, I did not get sick ! 🙂 #winning
In lieu of having ALL day morning sickness and queasiness, now EVERYTHING tastes weird and the very THOUGHT of putting anything in my mouth, I start gagging and am on the verge of vomiting. Even taking my pills I gag…
None… my taste buds are all jacked up so I have to force myself to eat. Right now, grits, eggs, and sausage patties with toast or a cheeseburger that I make are the only things that taste remotely normal.
All food, period !
I am STILL waiting on the MaterniT21 results. Hopefully I will have them early next week so that I can plan a small gender reveal party with my family while they are here for Easter.
What I Miss?
What I Am Looking Forward To?
Feeling the baby move.
No change… still a little pouch.
My car seat and stroller are here. I bought items for my baby bag and have started putting together items I will need in mine. Because I am going back to NYC, I have to take everything with me that I may need. The baby has a gorgeous Kate Spade baby bag I bought over a year ago and I am getting a Kate Spade Lyla Weekender bag for myself.
This week, I bought hooded towels, more Burts Bees clothing, and ordered a pair of Pink Converse Chucks and a pair of pink Puma crib shoes. (I hope this baby is a girl !!)
