What’s New With Mommy
I have my next appointment tomorrow to check on the heartbeat (since we weren’t sure if we saw one last time or not). Stay tuned for a doctor’s visit update tomorrow!
I started feeling better for a few days, but today is not one of them…nothing sounds good to eat and I’ve been nauseated all day. I pretty much force myself to eat something and hope it stays down (I haven’t thrown up yet and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I won’t.)
Still moody. The worst part is I have a lot less patience right now, which you to have to have with a toddler who gets frustrated when she can’t communicate what she wants or when she just is not able to do/have something. Chris has been great though – he’ll take Penny on a car ride or to the store to give me a short break. I hope this moodiness is over soon!
Saliva still going strong…I have a teeth cleaning later today (hope they’re ready with suction…)
I definitely see a change in my belly from 6 to 7 weeks, although it could be bloating. I’ve noticed my clothes getting a little tighter around the waist, but I haven’t had to bust out the belly band or dig into my maternity stash.
Penny decided that she likes to help put belly butter on mommy’s tummy. She thinks it’s hilarious 🙂
I think I might have lost a pound,,,the scale has been reading around 120 most of the week.
I must be anxious or something because I’ve been having a lot of upsetting dreams lately…hopefully my subconscious cheers up soon.
I had a run of a few days that I was feeling pretty good (I attributed this to eating more protein). I really wanted Dreyer’s Slow Churned Ice Cream (I blame the 50 commercials I must have seen for it). Guess what? It lived up to the hype! I have not, however, been able to eat my famous homemade pizza…the smell of the sauce makes me sick. Today I have reverted to morning sickness mode…nothing has sounded good since I woke up. I’ll hope for a better tomorrow appetite-wise!
What’s Up With Baby
Baby Simons is the size of a blueberry (about 1/2 of an inch).
Hands and feet are forming, although they still look like little paddles. Baby is developing eyelids over his or her eyes – which have some color! The brain has two hemispheres now and the liver is making red blood cells until the bone marrow gets going and takes over that job. There is a loop in Baby’s intestines that form part of the umbilical cord that takes nutrients from the placenta to Baby. Still lots of growing going on this week!
Still none, although I have felt some gas bubbles that feel like fetal movement (too early for that though!)
