11 weeks

10 weeks: This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature. Vital organs ā€” including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver are in place and starting to function….tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin. Your baby’s limbs can bend now.

11 weeks: Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long, is now almost fully formed. She’s already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet.

It also says I’m supposed to be feeling more energetic and that the nausea should be starting to wane, but I think that is all lies. I have been taking less naps tho (0-1/day rather than 1-2/day). But as for the nausea, I threw up Fri night even tho I’d already taken the promethazine pill. So far just that one instance, tho. At my doc appt today, Dr Webb gave me a prescription for zofran instead since it is stronger and doesn’t make you so sleepy, but my insurance is refusing to fill it *sigh*.

Also at the doctor today, he couldn’t hear the heart beat on the doppler machine, which isn’t totally abnormal at 11 weeks, but he offered me a free ultrasound to make sure! yay for ultrasounds!

In Lucas news, on Friday (21st) he said his name (wucas), for the first time. altho if you ask him what his name is, he says “Name.”
Today he started crawling out of the crib, so we had to empty the nursery of its entire contents and paul converted the crib to a toddler bed. That way even tho he can crawl out, he can’t get into anything and he can’t get out of the room. So he can run circles in the empty room, jump on the bed, i don’t care what, but he will stay in his room from 2-4pm regardless of if he sleeps or not. he is definitely at the age these past few weeks where he repeats everything he hears, so we really hafta start watching what we say around him.
