How far along? 9 Weeks 1 Day

What did the babies develop: All of squishes body parts are intact! Now they just have to grow! This little is developing a sense of balance and all of the organs are starting to work including taste buds! Also has toes, bones in the arms, and joints that bend at the elbows.
Gender: Unknown to us
How many: 1 little squishy.
Showing a bump: Nope
Maternity clothes: Nope
Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Still going strong at night and now napping daily.
Movement: Yes! We saw it on the ultrasound! But I can't feel it yet.
Best moment this week: All restrictions being lifted as well as knowing that we are now passed every milestone from our last pregnancy. And this is going strong. God has this little one in the palm of His hand.
Miss anything: Being able to eat anything I want.
Medical Help: Daily progesterone shots and 4x daily estrogen pills
Emotionally Feeling: Tired, but still thrilled at this beautiful process
Belly button in or out: In
Food cravings: This week I wanted pasta, but over all loving carbs and meat.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Sweets, water, and lots of smells
Symptoms/Side effects:Yes. So many. Linea nigrea, feel yucky when don't eat enough, random pains, zero energy, not losing any hair, already feeling a few of the effects of relaxin in my ligaments and tendons.
Wedding ring off or on: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but tired. Just tired.
Looking forward to: Being able to eat anything I want. And not being tired.
Things they don't tell you about pregnancy: That your ligaments will start feeling swollen from the relaxin this early and there will be sharp pains in your hips from it too!
Well hello there Little Squishy!
Still no baby bump!
I found out at the appointment today that the miscarriage rate decreases to only 12-15% now that there is movement! We also saw the little 2 hemisphere brain and learned that little squishes kidney's are functioning well.

The sack is measuring at 39.88 mm with the blood clot only measuring at 18.37 mm. It is going WAY down! yay! Also learned that with all the movement that means little squishy is doing really well because if the little was in distress, there would be no movement because all the energy would go toward growing.

We also learned that at this point our little wakes up for 20-40 minutes at a time and then goes back to sleep again. I can wake up this little one when I hiccup, cough, sneeze, or even eat anything sweet or cold.

Watching that little dance is by far the craziest thing I have ever seen. It definitely blows my mind! Even more then the heartbeat did. Dancing' fool! We got a video that we just keep watching over and over. I worked for about an hour to post it and it didn't happen. Will try harder!
