Week of January 10th, 2017
How Far Along? 5 weeks
Due Date: according to my calculations around and about September 10th
Maternity clothes? 6 years and going strong
Stretch Marks? oh honey; my stomach will never be the same.
Sleep: still pretty average for me; nothing noticeably different.
Best moment this week: Finding out we are pregnant. It's been a roller coaster and I intend to do a complete post of my feelings and everything soon.
Food aversions: pretty good so far on this one
Gender: i've initially said girl.
Labor Signs: oh lord please no; no more preemies for me please.
Belly Button in or out? I've never had this happen so I doubt it will this time too
What I miss: I can't say anything.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out this is viable pregnancy. The boys and I, and Adam too are really hoping for twins again. We would all love that; but all in Gods plans...
Baby's now the size of an appleseed!Your embryo, which doesn't look like much more than a tadpole right now, is actually starting to form major organs (heart, kidney, liver, stomach) and systems (nervous, circulatory, digestive). Baby's presence in your uterus triggers production of HCG (the hormone detected by pregnancy tests), which triggers the production of other hormones like estrogen and progesterone, which triggers all those great symptoms you've probably been noticing!
