I’m week 11 pregnant
How big is the baby?
Around 6 cm for 30 g
Something special this week?
Today is my last day for my hormone treatments. Goodbye progesterone and estrogens !
Most challenging moment?
I’m still suffering from dizziness.
We have been suffering from strong heat weaves since the beginning of the week ! That’s why, my nights are not good (and too short) and I feel so tired in the morning, hence headache and dizziness. I must confess, riding a bike in this heat is not a great idea for me. Today, I was resting again at the hospital while Little H was enjoying the small pool.
Most exciting moment?
This week was very interesting from a business point of view. I had customers appointments, a class council, new contact and some very exciting new projects ! I’ve begun to announce my pregnancy to my clients and their warm welcome was very comforting
I’ve also met a friend and former colleague who is expecting her second child, only with a month ahead of me. It was so fun to measure our rounded bellies and to announce our pregnancy to our former colleagues!
What’s new doctor?
We have almost reached the end of the first trimester! It means my IVF treatment can be stopped because now the baby is strong enough. So now, I’m supposed to be more myself and not suffer from adverse effects. I can’t wait to see the difference !

With the hotweaves, I can’t stop myself from looking for fresh salads ! Unfortunately, fruits are a bit late to arrive on the local market so I tend to choose sorbets for dessert…
For a few weeks now, French restaurants have reopened after Covid19 restriction. I was so happy to go and have lunch on Monday with my client ! It was so delicious and wonderful ! I enjoyed every bite of my Italian raviolis . Happiness relies on small things !
Biking, biking… a little too much.
Mr A was at our town lake with the daycare center on Wednesday so I went to pick him up with Little H on bike. 9km in the heat wasn’t not really a good idea…
The week was so full of appointments, and meetings I didn’t see it ending ! I had no time to feel sorry for myself !
Self Care ?
A SMART plan for the week (one single objective for my priorities) with a lot of rest when needed was efficient.
I even took some time to watch all the Hunger Games movies in the evening. It reminded me how much I loved the books. I can’t wait to read them again !
Little H psychiatrist told me it is important I make some room in my mind for my baby.
For now, all I think about are Little H & Mr A issues, my business… and all the pregnancy things I have to organize (announcement, administrative, finding a new maternity,how is going to take care of the kids while I’ll be giving birth…). But it’s true I don’t really think about the baby himself/herself. I don’t project myself or imagine who the baby will be (not even the sex).
It’s quite hard for me to fall into the emotional side of my pregnancy. I don’t know if it’s because it’s my 3d baby and if it’s normal because I’m much more busy with 2 kids but this is really a question I have to think about.
