We are going to have another sono on the 9th.

Things are going really well so far!!  Just feeling really full most of the time.  We have another sono on the 9th that I will see Amy and Richard for too.  We are 8w1d today!!  We should see the baby moving around a little this time.  The sono machine at Dr. M’s isn’t as good as the one I have at work so I was glad that I did a sono 1st with the heartbeat because we got a much better picture.  We even got a strip of the heart beat but we didn’t have sound so I couldn’t hear it.  They didn’t have that feature on Dr. M’s either.  Oh well we will get another sono when we start to see our OB.  Hopefully we can be released to the OB after this appt!!

How your baby’s growing:

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby’s hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his “tail” is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven’t developed enough to reveal whether you’re having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can’t feel it.

How your life’s changing:

// You may notice that your bra is getting more snug. Soon you’ll likely need a larger size with better support. Rising levels of hormones cause breast growth and other tissue changes, all in preparation for lactation. Your breasts may continue to grow throughout pregnancy. Don’t be surprised if you go up a cup size or two, especially if it’s your first baby. Keep this in mind, and allow for room to grow when investing in a new bra.

Feeling fatigued? Hormonal changes — in particular, a dramatic rise in progesterone — may be contributing to your sluggishness. Nausea and vomiting can certainly cost you energy, too. And you may be having trouble getting a good night’s sleep at this point, especially if you’re uncomfortable or find you need to get up to pee.
