11 weeks, 2 days: Pregnancy update

I'm going to dish on my pregnancy and in return I want the dirt on yours. And if you are trying to conceive, then I want that news too. Like, how many times you took a test this week....or the "symptoms" you think you have.
I'm feeling almost human again. I want to have twins but since I'm feeling almost normal now I'm thinking I'm not having twins. Don't twins sound fun? Double your fun for half the work? Or do I have that backwards? Double the work for half the fun? No, I liked it better the other way.
I'm still pretty tired a lot of the time. But now I can do a load of laundry without sitting down for two hours. Yes, I was that exhausted. Now I just take a nap and go to bed at 10 and I'm fine. Of course, Asa is sleeping most of the night, even all night sometimes, and that helps me to not feel so tired.
Food is still not on my list of favorite things to do. Most food just doesn't appeal...but I am getting my appetite back a little. I'm not as nauseous and that helps A LOT. Mostly now it's at night...which is much more doable. (A wonderful company sent me some morning sickness remedy so I'm giving it a try and will have a giveaway in the next week.) But every day a little something else appeals to me. Today I threw up for the first time...SMELLS. They get me every time. Anyone else get attacked by some strange leftover scent in the kitchen and hurl everything. (While you are it, who wets their pants when they throw up? I can honestly say I did not this morning. YEA ME! I had just emptied my bladder, thankfully.)
What have you bought for the baby lately? I bought two onsie shirts. One is a collared shirt and the other was a onsie that had a blue "boy" sign on it. Yep, I'm expecting a boy. No, I haven't had a sonogram...I won't get one. But I want a boy and so far I've gotten what I've wanted every single pregnancy. Don't you think that trend should continue? Then last week I bought a cute little duckie robe and a duckie pajama outfit. Why do perfectly educated women go from calling ducks duckies when they are pregnant or have new babies? How about stomach to belly or tummy? What happens to us?
Still haven't felt the baby move...but is it just me or does every little twitch make you sit real still and pay attention? Because, this could be it. Is that it? No, what about now? Nope. Soon though, right? That's what makes pregnancy so amazing. Feeling a real live human being moving around in your tummy. (SEE???) But at the same time, think about it, it's WEIRD! A real live human being is MOVING AROUND in your tummy. WEIRD! Who thought up this idea???? (It's a joke...I know it was God.)
And that's my update. Can't wait to hear yours. If I haven't seen a picture lately, don't you think it's about time? You've got me on a rant now. You are lovely when you are pregnant. You aren't fat. You need a picture EVERY SINGLE month when you are pregnant. And at least one of just the belly with no shirt on it. I save that for the end. Because by then your stomach is GINORMOUS and you don't care about the stretch marks. You just want to show off how GIGANTIC your belly is and how there was no possible way you could grow anymore. Those pictures are priceless to your kids, your husband and some day to you. Remember, you are beautiful. NOW, GO TAKE A PICTURE.
