What an exciting week for meeee!
WELL WELL WELL WELL... I am now in week 9. I've had a pretty exciting week, I had my doctors appointment on the 20th and got to see my little baby for the first time. She/he was so wiggly and I could see it's little heart beat flickering away at a proud 169bpm. It was really exciting and shocking... I can't wait to see it again... that'll be in another 4 weeks, though. :( Then they're going to do a first trimester screening, looking for birth defects and what not. It was an optional thing, but I'd rather know now to be prepared rather than it get sprung on me later... ya know?
Anyways, yesterday (the 23rd) I had an actual visit with my doctor and they had to do an awfully awkward papsmear, (haha, and I made Jack stay in the room to hold my hand) and had to get my blood drawn... I also had to drink this disgusting sugary drink, yuck. :/ It wasn't a bad trip, it was actually kinda fun and pretty informative. :)
Okies, here's a peak of what's happenin' with the peanut in my uterus:
"Congratulations! Your amazing growing baby has been accepted into to the fetus-club, a very exclusive and exiting new stage in their prenatal development. Basically, this means the little sweet pea has graduated from swimming embryo creature to a recognizable human being! This week in particular, the irises of their little eyes can function, but (frustratingly for them?) their eyelids remain fused shut for a while yet. Their external ears are formed and their inner ears are now filled with fluid—so your little one is already developing their sense of balance. Your baby's little swimmer legs are still relatively, although other bodily developments are going forward at a nice pace: their kidney is actually functioning now, which means they’ve started urinating (this might seem charming now but wait till you have to start buying diapers!)."
Ew... my baby is peeing in meee :( What's even grosser is that they swallow it and it's just a vicious cycle of drinkin the pee, then peein' the pee. haha.
Oh, and I'd like to thank everyone who has been following my blog. It means a lot to me when you tell me you like it. :) Thank you! You all are the best! -hugs-
Til' next week....Mamabear out!
