The big news this week: Hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs — although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities you're daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry!
If Icould see inside my womb, I'd spot eyelid folds partially covering her peepers, which already have some color, as well as the tip of her nose and tiny veins beneath parchment-thin skin. Both hemispheres of your baby's brain are growing, and her liver is churning out red blood cells until her bone marrow forms and takes over this role. She also has an appendix and a pancreas, which will eventually produce the hormone insulin to aid in digestion. A loop in your baby's growing intestines is bulging into her umbilical cord, which now has distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to and from her tiny body.
Your uterus has doubled in size in the past five weeks and thank god for NO morning sickness, I'm actually a MORNING person these days!
where i live rarely do they do VBAC so most likely C plus i had a few complicatiosn last time so my obgyn is guessing it will be a C
Def whatever is less complicated for you and baby. My SNL had a VBAC, it went very smoothly for her. She said she wanted to experience birth and they say the more sections you chave the thinner is makes your uterus. I had a vaginal but i feel comp opposite for her, I was like forget the hard work can you just take the baby . But it wasn't bad I'm ready to do it again!
DH and I just did our 7 week ultrasound and my "official" due date is now September 19!!
We saw the little bean's heartbeat and it was strong!!!
I go back on Tuesday for a full work up and all that jazz but I'm super excited to know that we have what Doc considers a viable pregnancy that is progressing!!!
How is everybody doing?
Congratulations! Our due dates are (2) days apart! I'm feel great in the mornings I have more engery during this time then ever but when 2pm hits its starts going down hill from there & usually by 7pm I'm completely worthless...LOL! Hopefully after these hormones level out the tiredness will ease a bit. How are you feeling?
