So, though Little Bit is still just a Little Bit, I was hoping we'd hear that (s)he looked like at least $250K!
I was not disappointed! The heartbeat was 167 (Matthew's heartbeat was always in that range too--think my children just flutter quickly!) and flickered beautifully. We measured right on track for 10w0d, which is exactly what we are today and Dr. Sweeney said that the baby looked like a million dollars--and just like me!
I told him that I keep telling John that the baby looks like me, but I was glad to have it medically confirmed.
Baby was wiggling this morning too, and I am glad to know that already (s)he is a wiggler. Matthew was SUCH a wiggler and I found that so reassuring. I hope this sister or brother will be too and I hope that the last two ultrasounds are indicative of a wiggler. A really active wiggler.
Y'all are going to have to send me recipes for goodies to take to my doctors because even though I think everyone loves brownies, they can get boring. I shook it up a little today with black forest cherry brownies, and I think I'm going to make some fudge for my appointment with Dr. Shonekan on the 29th. I think one of the things I can do to keep busy in between appointments is try to come up with new goodies to take.
Here are the stats for 10 weeks. Still pictures and video follow:
Week Ten: Embryo is now waving!
During this week of pregnancy the crown to rump length of the fetus is 0.9 inch to 1.2 inches (22 to 30mm), weight 0.07 ounce (2gm). They are now on the way to forming their testicles or ovaries, getting ready for the next generation. Until the ninth week of fetus development, the fetal reproductive apparatus is the same one for the both sexes. The head is still large and curves into chest.
Each week your uterus grows larger with the baby growing inside it. You may begin to see your waistline growing thicker by this time. A pelvic exam will detect that your uterus has grown from it's normal, size of your fist, to a little bigger than a grapefruit.
Of course, my uterus was not really cooperating so much so Katy had to really push down to get the baby to show him or herself. I hope this doesn't meant that I'll have to wait even longer to feel movement.
Here are a couple of still shots--getting bigger and soon we'll really be able to make body parts out!
Zoomed In profiles....
Profiles right after waves!
I got a really, really great deal on a Flip UltraHD to take with me when John can't be there (like today) and tried it out today. Not too bad, especially considering the deal I got. Gotta Love Amazon and Swagbucks!!
And yes...I know I ended it with, "So, she's ok?"
My apologies in advance, little one, if you are are another sweet baby boy. My guess is that since I'm feeling you're a girl, I'm probably WAY wrong and will have to keep making those apologies once you're born and can read!!
