well, as you know from the previous post, there was no ultrasound today. 🙁 i still had my regular checkup, which was totally boring. i am still a lb below from my first appt. so i’m still 170. bp was normal. BUT i got to hear the heartbeat! for the FIRST TIME. yeah, the other two times bean was moving too much for dr to find it. this time s/he was still avoiding the dopplar, and dr said he thought bean was face down and moving a lot. the hb was in the 150s.
How your baby’s growing: Head to bottom, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a large sweet potato) and she weighs almost 7 ounces. She’s busy flexing her arms and legs â€” movements that you’ll likely start noticing more and more. Her blood vessels are visible through her thin skin and her ears are now in position and stand out from her head. Myelin (a protective covering) is beginning to form around her nerves, a process that will continue for a year after she’s born. If you’re having a girl, her uterus and Fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If your baby is a boy, his genitals are noticeable, though he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
well that’s it for now. i have a lot to say about jeremiah but will post tomorrow or next about it. he is just so smart and precious it’s unbelievable.
