Next Tuesday, but I had a little scan to make sure everything is Ok today - I had some cause for concern, but it turned out to be not much of anything major, though they did find something like a subchorionic hematoma, a little pool of blood between the placenta and the uterus, though I think mine isn't actually anywhere near the placenta, so I'm confused but refusing to worry about it. (And instead constructing run-on sentences! Yay!)
I have three pics to share, Ember is measuring 11w0d, which is right on target.
First - alien baby playing peek-a-boo
. I find this one somewhat hard to decipher, but it's the baby's head, seen from above, with hir hands in front of hir face.
Second - legs
. This is the legs and feet and butt seen from below. I see something that makes me think male, but it's too early to really tell.
Third - feets
. This one is my favourite pic ever.
The heartbeat was 157 bpm and the kiddo measures 4 cm - crazy to think that at the last u/s about five weeks ago the kiddo measured 4 mm, so ze has increased tenfold in length, and will repeat this feat between now and birth.
Lyndzies - I totally hear you on the first/second tri limbo!
I can't believe how quickly the first tri has zipped by....for a second, and then I remember that I got four "free" weeks, though for me, those weeks were caught up in my IVF cycle, so not as "free" as they could have been. My prediction for me is that the second tri is going to drag on and on forever....and the third is going to be even slower than that.
Meanwhile, I'm having my most nauseated week of this entire pregnancy so far. It's not been BAD this week - I still have yet to even come close to puking - but it's been worse than it has been for me. I am absolutely famished but have no appetite all at the same time. I have eaten an extraordinary amount of take-out and restaurant food - I think today is the first day I haven't eaten any take-out or gone out, but I think that's because I slept all day today. Like, I didn't get out of bed 'til 11 and I was back in by six. And then I napped most of the evening, and I'm fixing to go back to sleep by midnight.
I'm going to be away from the Internetzes for a few days, going to see my grams in Ottawa, and hopefully tell her about the baby while I'm there.
I wish I wasn't so tired, a seven hour drive when I haven't been awake seven consecutive hours in a while seems kind of daunting.
This week is proving that even an easy pregnancy (knock on wood! It has been easy so far!) is hard work.
