Let me back up now that you know at this point I was actively lying to my husband. The first time I found out I was pregnant, I pulled my husband on to the porch of our neighbor's house and shoved a pee stick in his face with two double lines. Then the second time I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to make it a special experience for Josh, but he ruined it! He guessed almost immediately! So this time I was determined to completely shock him! Thus, the build-up of the there-is-no-way-she-is-pregnant nonsense. So fun! (It was NOT easy keeping this secret from him for only 2 weeks!)
Fast forward and January was almost over. Josh was pretty disappointed we didn't get to try for a baby in January. What he didn't know was I had already taken my IUD out myself (that is the PG 13 part and not so much G-rated) in late December! I sat Josh down with the boys the day Josh and I were leaving to go camping. He was confused as to why I needed to show him a family video right before taking Shep to school, but he quickly realized why! Needless to say, he was completely surprised and so excited!

How far along? 11 weeks
Baby is the size of a: lime
Total weight gain: My scale's batteries are dead and honestly I don't even want to know!
Waist Measurement: 31.5 inches (I thought I was huge, but that's only .5 inches bigger than last pregnancy at this week!)
Maternity clothes? I have moved up a pant size, but luckily I have a whole set of pants that are a size up. No maternity clothes yet.
Stretch marks? None so far.
Sleep: I haven't been sleeping at all. I've taken Melatonin a few times, with my care provider's approval, but I haven't seen much difference. Either I wake up to use the restroom or I wake up for no reason.
Best moment this week: This week has been hard with everyone run down, but the best moment this week has just been snuggling my boys and Josh. I've got a few extra naps, and that is always a bonus.
Movement: I haven't felt anything yet.
Food cravings: Spicy food is BACK! I didn't want spicy food at all last pregnancy, but all I wanted during my first pregnancy was sauteed jalepeños. I have a newfound love of Tabasco sauce on Chick Fil A's chicken minis. I've also had some serious aversions, but it just in the morning mainly. I almost can't eat at all first off, but having an empty stomach is what makes me so sick!
Miss Anything? I wish I would have gotten into shape before this pregnancy like I did with the last two. I am SO weak. This little strength I did have is gone.
Symptoms: Pretty severe morning sickness. I am over that. SO over it. I've occasionally felt sickness throughout the day too. Extreme fatigue and occasional muscle spasms.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood? Run down and tired. Very unmotivated to cook, clean, or do extracurricular activities. I go to bed around 8-9pm every night after putting the boys to bed!
Looking forward to: This weekend celebrating my sister-in-law, brother, and my NEPHEW!!! I love saying that. I am going to have a NEPHEW!
