How your baby's growing:Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
The baby is the size of an apple! I still am in awe. I was in Dallas all week last week for work and I couldn't pick up wireless at the hotel...pooey.
When I got home on Friday, I tried the doppler and I immediately found the heartbeat!!! It was awesome! I just sat there and listened! Matt was gone so I tried to find it again on Sunday and it took me a little longer. He got to briefly hear it before the baby moved around or something. lol. It was 2 inches over from where I found it last time. So, the little one is moving around like crazy!
I took my first belly picture this weekend...it is from my view...
It just really popped out last week...I LOVE it.
I am still nauseated every day. The actual throwing up has subsided somewhat...but I did throw up yesterday and once last week. I do gag and dry heave still. Sigh. I hope and pray it goes away.
