Ok, I know I'm a big FAT liar because I didn't post again this last week. My excuse? I was busy trying to finish Christmas cards, go to 3 family events, clean my house and prepare for my trip to NM in 3 days, and try not to go crazy. I hope you'll forgive me for writing about nothing but baby until the holidays are over!
Anyway, yay! I am officially out of my first trimester! Everybody take in a big breath and let it out in a big sigh of relief with me. To have reached this milestone gives me a tiny hint that everything just might turn out fine with this little one. Baby is now about 2.5 inches long and weighs about 14 grams. Baby's digestive system is now working and fingernails are beginning to grow. Baby is also starting to develop little tooth buds, how exciting!
We had our appointment this morning and got to hear the heartbeat on the doppler- 160 bpm, just as it should be. Although, we all had a good laugh while New Doctor chased a very active baby around my abdomen to get the heartbeat. Baby and I are healthy and things are looking great!
I can now feel the top of my uterus, which is interesting. I am feeling more like myself. I never really got very sick, but I was very tired. I am starting to get some of my energy back, which has been really nice. I'm looking forward to the so called "breeze" of the second trimester.
That's all for now. I'm leaving in 3 days to go home, I'll try to write while I'm there but no promises, so if I don't talk to you, Merry Christmas!
