A martini? What's that?
This week baby Fletcher is the size of a martini olive. My dad would be proud. :)
"Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like...well...a baby!"
Sorry that I'm a day late in posting this - I started to feel pretty bad last night and actually stayed home sick today. I think I'm starting to get a cold and that topped with not being able to eat much and probably not drinking enough - made for a pretty bad night/day. So I stayed home today, slept a lot, drank a lot of water, managed to eat - and am feeling better.
I went garage sale shopping with my mom over the weekend and bought a few maternity shirts. I don't need them quite yet, but at $1/each I'm pretty happy with the purchase. I also have a pair of maternity jeans (not wearing yet) but I have been wearing a bella band. It's sort of like a tube top that I can wear over the top of my jeans so that I don't have to keep them buttoned. I still can button them, but the bloat causes them to be pretty uncomfortable by the end of the day. I haven't gained any weight yet, in fact I'm still down 2 lbs.
I've been pretty hormonal lately - there is something in most every tv show, commercial, and song on the radio that will make me cry.
Jason and I have also already started to talk about names. Nothing official obviously and I'm sure we'll change our mind several times between now and then, but we do have a leading boys name that we both love.
So that's it from here! Our next appointment will be next week and we'll hopefully be able to hear the little bean's heartbeat on the doppler.
