11 Weeks

I am 11 weeks today! That means 6 days till the NT scan and just two more weeks three days till the end of the first trimester. I am hoping some of this time will fly by. After all Sandra and Steve, R’s very good friends, are visiting this weekend. After much discussion about what Sunday is, R and I have decided to ignore the day completely. This will be great since S&S don’t have children and they won’t mind us ignoring the day.

This week has been busy preparing the house for S&S arrival and taking care of my niece and nephew. My mom and I were sole caregivers to the two of them for the week. Thankfully the family is all reunited back in CA now.

Baby this week is the size of a large lime, or about 1.75 inches. “This is a rapid growth stage, and your baby's length and weight will likely double in the next three weeks. At this point, the head is almost half the size of the body, but that will change in the weeks to come. Your baby's head also begins to "uncurl" as the chin lifts and the head rolls backwards towards the spine, allowing the neck to better develop and grow. Now there are fingernails! The genitalia are also developing during this time frame, though the sex of your baby is still a secret.” (from babyfit.com)

oops, disregard my last comment about celebrating with your hubby. i freaked out because my bloglines, for some reason, hadn't given me a notification of you updating for a long time, then last night i thought, "hmm, she never goes this long without blogging," and sure enough, it was just bloglines being messed up. so i had to catch up on a lot of posts today, i hope you'll forgive the last comment. enjoy the weekend with friends!

Yeah for getting close to end of first Trimester. I hope your weekend goes good with the friends in town. Great idea to ignore the day, it'll just be Sunday, like any other week.
