+ 11 weeks + Not much to add. We're doing okay, even if my pants are too tight and my back hurts. :-) I still feel great for the most part, and want you to be happy in there. A friend gave me a nice book today, so this weekend I can rest, relax, and read about happy fuzzy feelings and daydream about holding you in my arms. That sounds beautiful right now!

+ Snickers + Okay, will you stop making me crave Snickers bars already? It's not the chocolate, or the nuts, or the caramel - it's the whole thing all rolled up together. You wanted tomato soup last night, so we did that and now that's the other thing on my stomach's mind. I think I could eat tomato soup (with lots of pepper) for 3 meals a day. With Snickers bars in between. I guess the soup's okay, but I really can't justify living on Snickers bars.
The books say you're developing quickly now, with pigmented eyes, real fingers and toes, growing body hair follicles and taste buds! You're about 1.25 inch long, which still seems so tiny, but you're growing all the time. My tummy's still growing too, with my uterus about the size of a grapefruit. I think my tipped uterus is irritating my bladder, which isn't fun, and I think I should talk to the Dr. about that next month. I can't wait for that appointment, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about you. Hang tough in there. We've got 2 weeks and 2 days until the first trimester is over. Then we can just enjoy the ride together!

+ Dreaming + Wow, I'm having some of the most vivid, complicated dreams I've ever had. People told me that would happen, and that I'd dream about people from my past. I am, and it's weird. All of these people from my childhood, high school, online, and the present are sometimes in the same dream. When the dreams first started coming, they were almost nightmares, or at least intensely thriller-type dreams. Now they're just strange dramatic plays, like renewing my vows with your daddy and a million things going wrong. Anyway, I'm still sleeping plenty (read: tons), and my energy is still mostly down. I have flashes of energy for a few hours, and then crash. But I'm feeling generally great. This weekend, you'll get to go to your Grandma and Grandpa's cabin for the first time. We're borrowing it for a much-needed mid-Summer getaway. It's just so hot in Phoenix, and it drains what tiny bit of energy I have left. Maybe the mountain air will refresh us all!
