Bump Attack: 11 WEEKS


Weight gain: None

Symptoms: The nausea and food aversions continue. Slightly better from last week, but still definitely there. Husband keeps insisting on grilling out, but that to me, by far, sounds like the worst possible idea on earth. Peeing like crazy. 

Appointment this week: On Monday saw the doctor...heartbeat was 171. Everything looked beautiful!

This week has been an okay week. One of those weeks where I have my good days, and then I have my bad days. For the most part though, the days start out good... and then at some point get bad. Its the food that really bothers me. It's like, I can't stand the thought of eating it... but then when I dont, my belly starts to hurt bad. And then the only food that I can even think about putting down is fast food {so strange}. Which doesn't really make me feel much better. So I'm spending lots of money and wasting precious calories on terrible food. 
We celebrated Father's day on Sunday so that was fun. Elli got papa a sweet little album full of papa and daughter pictures. He really enjoyed that. 

We also went to a "splash pad" park and although Elli fully enjoyed watching all the kiddos and running around, she would NOT partake in the "splashing" part of the pad. You know, all the sprinklers. Water splashing in your face. No way. Girlfriend does NOT like things splashing in her face. Strange, seeing as how she LOVES to splash water at the pool. But regardless, she enjoyed herself.

We also went to grandma and grandpa's house on Saturday, she made mama and Elli baby some delicious chicken noodle soup, which we ALWAYS enjoy, and we had lots of fun swimming at the pool. During this time, papa got to enjoy golfing with his guy friends who drove a couple hours to see him. He LOVES to golf and enjoy time with the guys. We love how happy it makes him too.

Gender predictions: Still jumping back and forth from boy to girl. Initially, I had thought boy. But lately, I've been thinking we will have another mini-Elli. Just because for some reason, I cannot imagine a boy in a our family right now. Would LOVE to have a boy. But would also LOVE to have a girl. So we shall see....

What's coming up: Appointment in less than 4 weeks. Trip to Cleveland to see some of Andrew's family. Trip to Cincinnati to see his grandmother. And mama's birthday in a month!

  7. BEAUTIFUL!!!

    When I was pregnant I was sick 24/7 and my sister told me about these suckers {pre-natial pops} or something like that. They have them at drug stores and you might even be able to get your doctor to write a prescription.

  10. You have such a cute baby bump!
    I'm gonna guess your having another GIRL!

  11. I really hope you start feeling better soon and can eat normally again. I remember that feeling and it is the worst! Either way, you are looking fabulous mama! It's funny that you say that you can't imagine a boy in your family because that is something I think about a lot with baby #2. I'd love to have a boy but it's so hard imagining it after having a girl, you know?

  26. You look beautiful, and have such a cute baby bump!

  27. Poor thing : ( I'm sorry you are so nauseated! That stinks! Maybe it will pass SOON! And don't feel bad, I had the same exact problem with only eating fast food! I think there is just some so unappetizing about food preparation when pregnant. At least for me. Anyway, you look fabulous as always : ) hope you get to feeling better this week!
