11 weeks

Well its 11 weeks this week and things are really starting to noticably change. My belly is sticking out all the time now and there is no denying something is going on.
I have alot of round ligament pain all day long, and alot of stretching which always worries me because of the way it feels.
Morning sickness is still kicking my butt day and night, heartburn has really kicked in and is there almost at some stage each and every day, and constipation! yuk!
Tomorrow we go in to have the bloodwork done for the first trimester screen (Nuchal ultrasoud), these are the other results that get looked at with the u/s to determine the chances of down syndrome and other abnormalities.I am so excited to see baby this week as i know that it will be completely different, it should be a side profle shot from now on, we should be able to see all the little features, arms and legs, nose and mouth etc.I cant wait!
there are only less than 2 weeks now until we are out of the 1st trimester. It has gone so quickly yet so slowly as well.

Here we are at 11w2d.
My mum is entirely too excited about my stomach and comments on it daily, showing it off to Iain and making an example of it whenever she gets the chance.lol.
We still both think it will be a boy :) The gender scan cannot come quicker. I need to know what this baby is, as so far i dont feel any kind of connection and i feel horrible for it.
Time will tell...Hurry up and wait.

Week 11
Nearly all structures and organs are formed and beginning to function.
Fingers and toes have separated - Take a glimpse at how incredibly precious your child's tiny feet are at this point.
Hair and nails begin to grow
The genitals begin to take on the proper gender characteristics - It will be just a few more weeks before your
ultrasound can show if you are having a boy or a girl! Have you been dreaming of pink or blue?
Amniotic fluid begins to accumulate as the kidneys begin to function - This fluid, consisting primarily of water, helps provide a cushion for your baby while she's nestled within your womb.
The muscles in the intestinal walls begin to practice contractions that digest food.
Your baby is about 1.61 inches (4.1 cm) long and weighs 0.25 ounce (7gm).
