Week 7

Today I am officially 7 weeks. I went to the dr last Friday and everything went great. They don't have an ultrasound machine at this office so I have to go to another office next Friday, I'm so excited. But here's a little tidbit on my lil peanut or should I say blueberry :)

The big news this week: Hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs — although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities you're daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry.

Week 6

This was meant for last week:

6 weeks: Baby is the size of a lentil Your baby is as long as a lentil (about 1/4 inch). This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His or her emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and the arms and legs by protruding buds. Your baby's heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute – almost twice as fast as yours – and blood is beginning to course through his or her body. The intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to the lungs has appeared. The pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of your baby's brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil bean.

It's finally happening....

I wrote this a few days ago and was worried about saying something but screw it. So here goes: I'm officially pregnant!

I was hesitant to say anything but heck my whole family knows now so why not document this and share this with the world.

Today I am officially 6 weeks :) I went last week to say goodbye to my RE fertility specialist and they did an ultrasound and my little peanut looks so cute. Even though it was the size of a sesame seed haha.

I am so excited and happy and beside myself.

Drum Roll please...

These last two weeks have been crazy. I didn't realize I haven't posted since my IUI. School has been crazy insane, I'm in my last week of online classes and then this week I start my next 6 weeks of classes...can't wait!

Work has also been extremely crazy and this past week we went down to Motor City Casino for the night and had 2 days worth of meetings. The first day we had a meeting for a few hours then they treated us to a baseball game which was fun. The weather has been weird and of course while were at the game it was in the 90's and hot and humid.

I of course have been having symptoms and keep wandering what's going on. and since I was pregnant last month I keep comparing myself to last month. I know I shouldn't but that's how our brains work I guess. I have been cramping on my right side near my ovary, really tired and taking naps which is rare for me. I have been getting up and peeing throughout the night which I never do. I have been so bloated I look 6 mths pregnant and it hurts. My pants barely fit because I'm so bloated. I've been getting headaches, dizzy and eating so much food it's disgusting. So I kind of had a feeling something was up. Yesterday, Cinco de mayo I celebrated my 11th wedding anniversary and of course had a doctor's appt for my pregnancy test. I told the nurse don't call me unless it's good news haha. We started the day off by going to breakfast, we went for a motorcycle ride and ended the night with dinner at our favorite restaurant Maggiano's. It's italian and we go every year on our anniversary, it's a tradition now. But before we went to breakfast I got the call. I was very apprehensive to answer it but wanted to know what was going on. To be continued.....
