9 Weeks 2 Days

To my disappointment they canceled my ultrasound yesterday, but it didn't surprise me since the first two I had were only off by two days from my LMP and the growth between them was perfect. I won't have another one until the anatomy scan between 18 and 20 weeks.  Nothing too exciting about yesterday's appointment.  Mostly lost of questions about diseases I've never heard of.  Then an exam and blood drawn.  The next one should be a little more exciting.

Weight: +5lbs, my lack of energy is really hurting me!
Next appt: Aug 17, review blood work and try to listen for a heartbeat!

The floating baby to the right is a pretty good representation of what baby looks like this week.

Here's what's going on with Bean, according to Baby.Center, this week:
Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.

In other news I think Lillian is getting her final baby teeth.  She started with a fever yesterday that won't go away with Tyle.nol or Mo.trin, but she is acting fairly normal besides sleeping more frequently.  She let me look in her mouth this morning though and I couldn't see any sign of teeth so who know.

Thanks to the reader who clicked the banner!  Can you do it again?  I like it!

  1. Awww, sweet little grape baby! Isn't it crazy to look at a 1-inch grape and think baby is that size or that we were ALL that size at some point? Crazy awesome!
