Bumpdate | 11 Weeks

Bumpdate | 11 Weeks

This post may be a sensitive subject for some readers and contains graphic details.

How Far Along?: 11 Weeks! Getting closer and closer to that second trimester mark already.

Weight Gain: 10 lbs. I know I know, it sounds like a lot and even I cringe when I see that number. But to be fair, I think it's been all the stress eating and the lack of exercise....or movement really.

Gender?: Not sure but we find out in just two weeks. Two very very looooong weeks.

How Big is Baby?: Baby is as big as a lime! Measuring 1.6 inches long and 0.25 oz. Baby is starting to kick already (not that I can feel it yet).

Symptoms: This last week has been rough. Mentally and physically. I started bleeding very heavily and having bad cramps. Hurt to pee, couldn't walk. Top that with exhaustion and some severe back pain and my week has been just dandy. I've been on and off bleeding for the last week, but the bizarre thing is I only bleed in the middle of the night (bright red) and then throughout the day it's just the blood from the night before. After spending 6 hours in the ER and going to an OB, we finally found out I have a subchorionic hemorrhage which is causing the bleeding and the pain. They put me on bedrest until the bleeding stops, so it's definitely been taxing.

Any Food Cravings?: Anything and everything in sight right now.

Sleep: I haven't really been getting the best sleep. Not sure if it's because of the stress, or because every time I do get up I have a small panic attack.

Stretch Marks?: No new ones thankfully.

Maternity Clothes?: Not yet!

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On.

What Do You Miss the Most?: At this point I would take the morning sickness and all the other horrible symptoms of pregnancy over what I'm going through right now. I miss having a "normal" pregnancy. It really makes you sit back and think about how blessed you are to even have a baby at all.

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: I'm really looking forward to catching up on sleep and just relaxing. Hoping and praying that this bleeding stops and that baby is ok.

Labor Signs?: Nope!

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: Honestly not much to go off last week. It was just a bad week over all. It was nice to see my mama though, she's always been there for me.

I could really use the prayers and positive thoughts y'all, it's been so hard on Wes and I.
