Ok so yesterday was our ultrasound appointment! At 8:30 am!!!! I barely got there in time because my kids don’t know what hurry means. Ha. J and K were both able to come for a super fast day trip to see their baby. It was such an exciting time. The dr had everyone close there eyes and just listen to the sound of the heartbeat. Baby B had a great little heart 127 bpm. He also asked before the ultrasound now how many are we looking for. I said oh just one we only put one in. Twins would have came as quite a shock to us all, but it does happen and embryos can split! We just saw one wooohoooo. As of yesterday the baby seemed to measure 6 weeks and 6 days he said though yesterday was 7 weeks. We had a great visit with lots of laughter. As far as me and symptoms I still feel great. I’m definitely still tired all day and now recently I’ve been VERY emotional. Those of you that know me well know I’m not a emotional person I do my best to never cry. Well it’s not working well with this pregnancy! Baby B has my emotions all crazy.
Last Saturday Ricky took me to a pet store I love to go to so I can snuggle puppies. Well when we were there I ended up holding a baby RAT!!!! ewwww I know. Actually he was super super sweet and soft and just sat on me. The lady told all about them and how they are great pets and they are so smart and you can teach them tricks and potty train them etc etc. well obviously I decided I loved this little guy but it was time to put him up. Ricky said don’t worry we can research them more and decide what to do. The lady then says oh yes don’t worry we get them in ALL the time. I said wow I had no idea rats were such popular pets. She then looked at me and says oh well most people buy them as feeders for their reptiles! I literally lost it and ugly cried in the middle of a crowded store. Like hard to talk crazy cried. I had to explain to this poor girl that I was newly pregnant and I guess a bit emotional. She felt so bad. I mean I knew people had snakes and stuff but I honestly thought they just ate mice! I still feel absolutely awful for that poor guy. I cried for a good two days about him. I know it’s silly to cry over a rat but I totally did. Lol.
My butt is really really sore. These shots are definitely getting less and less fun. I’m hoping I can be done with them closer to the 10 week mark but I have a feeling this RE (reproductive Endocrinologist) will make me do the full 12 weeks. Now we just wait for information from the clinic on what they want us to do next.
Now for what baby is doing!
Your baby at 7 weeks
The big news this week: Your baby’s hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs – although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny baby fingers and toes you’re daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that’s the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry.
If you could see inside your womb, you’d spot eyelid folds partially covering her peepers, which already have some color, as well as the tip of her nose and tiny veins beneath parchment-thin skin. Both hemispheres of your baby’s brain are growing, and her liver is churning out red blood cells until her bone marrow forms and takes over this role. She also has an appendix and a pancreas, which will eventually produce the hormone insulin to aid in digestion. A loop in your baby’s growing intestines is bulging into her umbilical cord, which now has distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to and from her tiny body
