Bump Update- 11 Weeks!

How far along? 11 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain/loss:  As of Friday, I had lost 3.5 lbs in the past 4 weeks
Maternity clothes? I have a couple pairs of maternity slacks that I wear to work.  They are still a little too big but they are much more comfortable than my regular work pants.  Made my first maternity bra purchase yesterday and so glad I old bras were just about cutting off my circulation.  This one is much better.
Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: Waking up alot throughout the night but usually can go back to sleep easily.  Still having to go to the bathroom 2-4 times a night.
Best moment this week: Hearing baby's heartbeat at our doctor appt. on Friday :)  It was a strong 168!
Miss Anything? Nothing really.  Would LOVE to have more energy though!
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Cold fruit...especially strawberries!  And all kinds of pasta...mac & cheese, spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Most red meat and mint gum.  I used to chew gum all day, every day, now I can't stand it.
Have you started to show yet: It is not big but I definitely have a little bump.  2 ladies I work with noticed it last Thursday. :) 
Gender prediction: Started out thinking it was a boy but now I feel like it is a girl.  Even our doctor said she thinks it is a girl!  Thanks to living in Houston and some options we have, we will actually be able to find out in a little over a week!!  More on that later...
Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!  In the evenings when I am really tired I tend to be a little irritable but MOST of the time I catch myself before I snap.  Wooosahhhhh...

Symptoms:  Still dealing with heartburn almost every day, exhausted and I burp all the time. Ha! I have not thrown up in over a week though!  Hooray!
Looking forward to:  Finding out if we are having a boy or girl within the next week and a half and the 2nd trimester!! 
Funny moment of the week:  Sunday night hubby and I were just looking around on You Tube and we came across a video of the Top 10 Best Baby Videos.  I cried thru the whole thing.  There was absolutely nothing sad about it.  It was just a bunch of cute babies laughing uncontrollably.  Then, we came across a video of a live birth and I convinced my husband we should watch it.  HA! It was amazing but very intense.  And of course I cried thru the whole thing, but was also laughing so hard because of the look on my husband's face.  Poor guy... 
2nd Doctor Appt Notes:  
-Appt Date- 10/19/12-  10 wks 3 days 
- We heard the heartbeat of a baby in the next room to us and of course I cried.  Then when she finally found our baby's heartbeat I cried again, then started laughing, for no reason ( I am a bit of an emotional basket case these days).  She lost the heartbeat because I was laughing, then had trouble finding it again.  Way to go, Leslie.
-I had to give a whole bunch of blood, give a urine sample and we talked about all our options as far as genetic testing goes.  That conversation and our decision deserves a whole post so check back tomorrow for that. 
-Next appt is on Friday, 11/16/12
