11 weeks

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Hi. Here I am. Baby bless is the size of a lime. Yeah, I know. A lime. That's crazy. Like almost something of substantial size. Supposedly my uterus will begin to protrude from above my pelvic bone this week.

On the job front, I have my 6 month review next week which I am quite anxious about. I will be waiting to announce until after the review and the anticipation is killing us.

My Grandma made me more egg salad, we agreed though that an attempt should be made to healthify it a bit, since I'm downing it like I drink water! My Grandma was sweet enough to remove some of the yolks for my health. :)

Less than 2 weeks until the follow up ultrasound!

Disclaimer: I discussed with AJ before posting this last night, and she believes that it is understood I'm not trying to get you all to ooh and ahh over me . . . but I like beating a point until it's dead in the ground, so here I go.

I know that I do not look what I would think to be a normal 11 weeks pg. I also struggle with anyone thinking that I am attention whore. I also know that I've picked up quite a few pg or ttc readers and I do not want anyone to be comparing themselves to me, because pregnancy is a beautiful thing and completely relative to one's individual experience.

So, I decided to post my weekly belly pic regardless of the nonexistance of baby bump, as opposed to lumping together all of my belly pics again as I did for w6-10, because well, this is my blog and this is how I want to look back on this experience.

No I probably didn't have to explain this or justify it, but well, that's just who I am. :)

I LOVE staying up to date on your bump! It's too cute! And it's your blog, do whatever you want! You could make a post on how you feel beautiful as a new mommy, and I still wouldn't think you were an attention whore! You deserve it and congratulations!!

Katie said...

girl - you worry too much! I don't think anybody thinks you are an attention whore or whatever. I love seeing the progress (even if I can't tell yet)...and it let's me celebrate with you on the development of your new lime :)

Don't worry about hurting or offending anyone. I mean, it is a good thing you're so conscientous, but this IS your blog and I think readers from all walks of life enjoy seeing the pregnancy progression. I certainly do!

Jeannie said...

I think you look absolutely adorable!!

Good luck on the review and don't worry about the bump, no matter what size it is! God does everything a little different with everyone and there is nothing wrong with that!

Abby said...

YOu are too cute Leah!! I can't wait for a little baby bump to start showing!

AJ said...

You still make me want to do some crunches. But Rain wouldn't like that. He'll probably pull one of my muscles if I even attempt it. Thanks for the numerous shameless plugs of my blog :)

RLH said...

You are not an AW... that is uncalled for ! You can show your bump whenever and as often as you like !

Kelsey said...

"Baby Bless" is such a cute little name for baby! We haven't had any nicknames that have stuck... it's just "Baby" in our house!

You should post those belly pics with pride and joy--pregnancy is not about worrying what other people think. But in case you're curious--you look phenomenal!

Joi said...

Show it off, girl! It's your blog and your world. You look adorable and boo on all the meanies in blog world!

Keep showing us your progress : )

Vintage Gal said...

you are so adorable it should be illegal! may you have a blessed and joyful pregnancy!

Emily said...

You look darling, so excited for you!

Mary said...

You have every right to show your belly pics like everyone else does-that doesn't make you an AW. Besides, if you didn't track your weekly progress, you would find one day that you popped seemingly overnight. It's these pictures that show the subtle changes your body is undergoing during pregnancy. You look great:)

Sarah Danielle said...

Just found your blog! Must say congrats on your first child and an adorable bump - no matter what size! :)

Freckles Chick said...

Beautiful and glowing! I love "Baby Bless".
And yep, my stomach after all you can eat sushi night looks more preggers than yours. Lucky girl! *slumping away sadly to digest my sushi*
