I went to my second doctors appointment this week and got another ultrasound! Check out the five little fingers in front of our baby's face, hopefully there will be the same amount of toes! During the ultrasound I was able to not only hear the little heartbeat but also watch my baby arch its back and stretch its tiny arms and legs, which is one of the most exciting things about going to the doctor!
So this is what's happening this week (week 13) in my belly!
"Your belly may soon be noticeably bigger, but your baby is still tiny. He's about 3 inches long — roughly the size of a jumbo shrimp — and weighs about an ounce. His tiny, unique fingerprints are already in place. His kidneys and urinary tract are functional, and he's starting to excrete the amniotic fluid he's been swallowing. As you start your second trimester, most of your baby's critical development will be completed." (babycenter.com)
It's very exciting to see how the baby is growing, and my belly too. I still am not showing very much, and my clothes still fit but are getting very tight! I can't wait until I get to feel the baby kick, which will hopefully be very soon. Our next appointment is on November 13, which we will hopefully find out if our baby is a boy or girl! Continue to pray for us as we are going through stressful situations at work, learning a lot about each other as a married couple, and as we prepare for this new life that will be joining us very soon!
