Right now, experts say my baby is about 11 weeks (technically 11 on Tuesday, but I like starting weeks on Sunday and since no one can know for 100% certain when implantation occurred, I'm going to say Sunday works). Baby is about 1.5 inches long (apparently the size of a fig), tooth buds are appearing, some major bones are beginning to harden (don't worry, I've been drinking whole milk), and is moving all over the place. Now, I thought I was feeling those movements earlier, but after seeing baby move on the ultrasound it was pretty clear that I was just feeling gas bubbles - Baby couldn't even reach the sides of my uterus well enough for me to feel it yet.
Dahmon and I have been tossing names around, and if we have a boy then the baby will be named Drexel. Not sure on a girl's name yet...but this one I'm going to be far less straightforward about as we decided on Drexel a loooooooooong time ago, so that one wasn't too hard. We had decided on a girl's name, but then realized one of Dahmon's relatives has the name we decided on. Oh well. =)
This past week I've felt physically awful, and decided to not run the marathon that I was training for. I just feel too goshdarn poopy/tired. Right now I'm spending the day in bed due to illness. Bleh. Constant stuffiness from allergies developed into an actual cold...not fair!
:) Off to homework...
