I almost forgot… my baby is the size of a lemon now. Babies at this stage can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! The baby also started to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. My little peach fuzz baby. How cute! lol.
This little gadget called a doppler let Larry and I hear our baby’s heartbeat for the first time!!! I was a little sad on the first appointment at 10 weeks when they said it was only a 50/50 chance of hearing the heartbeat. She checked and …. nothing! But today, it was certain that we would hear it and we did! It was so neat to hear it pumping away so fast like that!
I joked that good thing I only heard one heart beating and she said well there is no way to tell for sure if it is only one baby in there until we do the ultrasound!! So… David will be able to continue to say its twins in there (though Im sure there isnt).
All my bloodwork came back good… my blood pressure is normal. No worries so far! 🙂
