Week 13!

I called Dr. S yesterday and requested an ultrasound for my appointment for tomorrow.  I am just nervous (again).  I had to call because I have to have some dental work done (I am grinding my teeth again...I have TMJ).  I have cracked two fillings in the back and now I have to have crowns.  UGH.

Anyway, the nurse said the dental work would be OK as long as they used a local anesthesia.  She mentioned that I would need to discuss my ultrasound request with Dr. S tomorrow.  I know he is letting me come every other week to check the heartbeat etc, but I haven't seen the baby yet when it looks like a baby.  I am worried about the amniotic fluid levels (just because of last time).  I just want reassurance and hopefully he will oblige.  My appointment is at 3:50 tomorrow.

I love getting the email updates every week from the babycenter.com and thebump.com and pregnancycenter.com.  This week is just amazing at all the details that are happening with him/her.  Here is info from babycenter.com:

How your baby's growing:

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

FINGERPRINTS?  already?  And, if she is a Malia Grace?  She already has 2 million eggs in her ovaries!!!???  Well, if Malia is Malia then I am praying she is fertile and she has good eggs and that her ovaries are perfect and her uterus is normal and all of her reproductive organs have NO trouble having babies!!!!  He/she is THREE inches long!  Wow, three inches.  One website said he/she was the size of a peach!  How peachy is that!!!?
