7 Weeks

 Week 7 Complete
How far along? 7 weeks 1 day
Babies are the size of: A single playing dice, a raspberry, or a brooches micro chameleon, but actually 12.25 mm
What did the babies develop: The little brain is growing like crazy, growing cartilage that is turning into bones, the beginnings of kidneys, arm and leg buds, tongue, ears, and eyes are also starting to form!
Gender: Already determined, but we have no clue.
How many: Pretty much determined at this point it is only 1.
Showing a bump: Nope
Maternity clothes: Sometimes I wish
Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Still sleeping well at night, but definitely napping. Especially when I don't feel as well it helps to just sleep.
Movement: Not yet according to the dr.
Best moment this week: Surviving a week of bedrest!
Miss anything: Being outside in the sunshine.
Belly button in or out: In
Food cravings: Fruit and chick fil a sandwiches
Anything making you queasy or sick: Sugar and carbs/sugar in the morning if I have not had enough protein yet. Also if I don't eat pretty much every hour on the hour.
Symptoms/Side effects: Oh so many! The main ones are morning sickness in the way of headaches if I don't eat, tingling in my extremities from laying down, getting light headed from laying down too much, and I officially have a linea nigra.
Wedding ring off or on: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy. Really just chillin'.
Looking forward to: Next weeks appointment with possible restriction lifting!

Starting to look like a human in my eyes! Thomas says it looks like a cashew.

All looked good! Little squishy had a very strong heart beat and was growing perfectly. Both the little one and the gestational sack are measuring 2 days growth beyond my 7 weeks 1 day today.

The subchoronic hemorrhage has only grown 1 mm from last time (29.30mm today), which means it is stable. The bleeding was completely clotted with no fresh blood on the ultrasound today. Which is awesome! Also, because the baby is growing so well and the subchorionic hemorrhage is not growing, the ration of blood to baby is getting less and less which is AWESOME. It means my bedrest is paying off! He even said that next week he will talk about lifting some of my restrictions!

So all in all doing well. And so thankful that this wee one is thriving and wants life!

Did it every take any other mom's out there a while to really realize that there is a living being inside of them? It still floors me. I know I see so much more being high risk with my millions of ultrasounds, but seriously you guys! Just amazes me.
