Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.
I know what you're thinking...This is your 5th child, shouldn't you be a little tired of "how your baby is growing this week" stuff already?? Well, the truth is, no. I never really kept a journal like this with the other pregnancies, so I figured better late than never, right? And every single baby, no matter if it's your 1st or your 12th, is special and deserves special treatment! So here's to Smalls...that's what we've been calling the little sweet pea :) Well, at least until we find out if it's a boy or a girl (and yes, we're finding out...I didn't dig the whole surprise thing with Isaac). I'm going to try to make this post every week with the developement of the baby and, when the time comes, a picture of my expanding belly.
I need to get on the elliptical for a while tonight. I neglected it alot last week due to illness...which had absolutely nothing to do with the pregnancy. I have no morning sickness whatsoever...yet. With Isaac, it hit at 6 weeks 3 days, so I figure I've got a couple more days of feeling okay.
I made my first OB appt. this morning. I'm seeing Dr. Lemberger, the same dr. that I saw with my first 3 kids. I went to a midwife with Isaac, and although I loved her, I'm not going back to her because of insurance reasons. I do love Dr. Lemberger though. She really is the best obstetrician out there!! I felt like I was betraying her when I went to the midwife with Isaac. So it's not like I'm upset that I can't be seen by a midwife. Dr. Lemberger knows me and she just feels like part of the family now. :) The first available appt. with her (because everyone wants to see her!) was April 6th. I'll be 12 weeks then!! Sheesh. Oh well. I'm sure everything will be fine.
