Week 11

I am linking up with My Joy-Filled Life today as I share my update about week 11.

My Joy-Filled Life

This week I have been told the baby is the size of a lime/lemon/plum. I use lemons all the time, so it has been fun to be able to hold one and know that is how big the baby is. My bump is currently at that stage where people think it is just a "mommy tummy" This week I even wore a shirt that said I love my bump and a guy asked me which one of my children (James and Jewel) was the bump. My sweet wonderful husband piped up and said "She is pregnant, so it is her bump from that baby!" I did not know if I wanted to cry of embarrassment or hurt him. I maintained my composure and just smiled.

Week 11
Food Aversions- Pink Lemonade, my husband offered me a sip and I almost lost my lunch.

Cravings- Chicken wings, Salad (big ones with lots of chicken, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, croutons, and dressing)

What made me cry- My son brought me a toy we got for him the day he had his circumcision, and asked what it was, as I start crying and trying to explain the story behind the little soft baseball rattle, I think he no longer knew what to do. When I finished the story he says "Mommy, you ok?" "I am ok," I said. To which his reply is "Umm, I go get daddy." Of course my husband just laughs, does anyone else have this problem? He seems to laugh about 75% of the time I cry over something :/

I am looking forward to the end of this first trimester! I know that in my second I will have more energy, and hopefully no morning sickness :)

Discussion Question: I am concerned about having a second c-section. I worry about my scar tissue, and the limits it will put on the number of children we will be able to have. I am fearful of the pain and healing, and the thought of not being able to pick up my other children. I Thess. 5:18 has always been a comforting verse for me it says: "In everything give thanks, for this is the will of Christ Jesus concerning you." I have to rest in the knowledge that God has a perfect plan for my life. It may not be easy, it may not be exactly what I want, but His ways are best! I have held onto this verse many times throughout my life, and it has been a comfort to me.


  1. Have you considered an VBAC or is that a possibility for you at all??? Praying for comfort!

    1. I have considered it, and my doctor and I discussed it, but due to some complications I had when I had my first, that is no longer an option for me. Thank you for your prayers! :)

  2. Thanks for linking up again!
    I will be praying for you and your c-section and recovery. The verse you referenced is a great one! Definitely keep that one in your mind and heart during this time! Hang onto that faith! You are so right; He does have a perfect plan for you and your family!
