Our Baby This Week

 

 

12 weeks

 

Well, we visited the doctor last week and heard the heartbeat for the first time.  It was such a relief to me because this pregnancy was so unplanned.  It was like an assurance that everything is okay.  Also, I’ve been feeling so not pregnant lately, now that all my 1st trimester symptoms have faded, it was reaffirming that we are having another baby and I’m not just getting fat.

This week the baby is about the size of a lime and unmistakably human.  His eyes have moved closer together and his ears are positioned just where they should be.  There’re only 8 more weeks before we’ll have the chance to know if we’re having a boy or girl.  Any bets or hopes?  Email us!
