Here’s what Ladybug is up to at the moment:
Fingerprints have formed on your baby’s tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.
I can’t believe I’m already 13 weeks. For those who do not follow the trimesters by the development of the fetus; I am now in the 2nd Trimester!!! 🙂
I haven’t had too much cramping the past few days, which is a good thing. I haven’t had any more bright red spotting since my last episode on Monday, which is an AWESOME thing! 🙂 I’m still having massive migraines. And I’m having bouts of morning sickness, although it’s striking at all times of day and night. There’s no rhyme or reason, it just hits me out of the clear blue sky. I’d almost rather have it all the time because then I know I have to take my meds before every single meal. With this random morning sickness stuff, I can’t prepare. I could eat breakfast and be fine. Then eat lunch and be *so sick*! Theoretically, it’s supposed to end soon. Here’s to hoping. *crosses fingers* At least I managed to accomplish some laundry before the morning sickness hit me this afternoon. It felt good to be able to get something done first though.
I think I’ve felt the baby move a few times. I’m pretty sure that it was the baby because it’s right where we saw Ladybug’s feet on Sunday in the ER ultrasound and it’s always in the same tiny little area. I can’t wait until I can tell for sure that it’s the baby and it happens more frequently. Right now I’m playing the “was that the baby?” game. lol
Overall, things are pretty quiet on the pregnancy front. *knock on wood* So there really isn’t very much to report right now. T-minus 12 days to the next ultrasound.
