Welp... That wasn't so bad. The first trimester pretty much flew by and thus far, I have had the easiest pregnancy I could have ever hoped for! I know that is completely obnoxious to those who have had to suffer through theirs, but I'll take what I can get! Thanks bebe, I owe you one! ;)
This week our little love is the size of a....
- Sucking their thumb and wiggling their toes! (Oh my goodness! Adorable!)
- Kidneys are making urine, and liver and spleen are doing their jobs too! (So does that mean mommy can have a glass of wine?)
- Growing lanugo, a thin, peach-fuzz-like, hair, all over their body that will help them keep warm. It'll eventually shed before birth...unless we are having a little monkey!
- Hair is also starting to sprout on their head!
Nothing exciting to report about little ol' me this week. No symptoms, no weight gain, no bump. Although I did shed a tear or two at a video montage about Veteran's day during zero period yesterday. But you would too. That shit was moving!
If the doctor hadn't assured me 100% that there is a baby on board, I might begin to wonder. The only notable thing for now is that occasionally I have little muscle spasms in my stomach. Kinda seems like I can feel the baby moving, but I think it is just my stomach contracting/stretching. Supposedly you can't feel baby until around 18-22 weeks.
Come on little lemon head - everyone's waiting to see you! :)
26 more weeks to go!
