We have passed the embryonic stage and now have a little fetus! Doesn't that sound so advanced? I still have quite the little belly whose size directly correlates with how bloated I am. I have been using a belly band on my tighter jeans to relieve a little bit of constriction and a few of my shirts are getting uncomfortably tight. Maternity clothes might be in my very near future!
We saw the midwife today and she said everything looked good still. We were hoping to hear a heartbeat, but she couldn't find it. She said that she normally can't hear them this early with the doppler so that it was nothing to worry about. The good news is that we have another ultrasound in a few weeks! I'm really excited to get to see our little one again and people tell me that 12 week ultrasounds give you really cute profile pics...yay!
Our little fetus is about the size of a prune this week and is working hard to develop his upper arm mobility. Pregnancy has still been pretty easy on me so far. Mostly just the occasional nausea and sleeping lots at night. And I have a monstrous hunger that seems to never abate. The next few weeks we will put lots of our baby prep on hold until we get settled back in Portland...get excited to be an Oregonian, baby!
