Today marks the beginning of Week 6. Huzzah! I go see the doctor in two days. Fingers crossed that I will see a heartbeat.
I get an e-mail at the start of every new week telling me all about the growing pumpkin seed I'm carrying and about what's going on with my body. Highlights from this week:
Pumpkin seed - Nose, mouth and ears are all developing this week! Heartbeat (which started last week I think) is at 100 to 160 beats per minute. Major organs like the brain, the lungs and the intestines as well as the pituitary gland are developing this week as well. Also, it's actually pumpkin seed sized! Ha :) Well, small pumpkin seeds anyway.
Me - Actually, the major topic this week was about mood swings, how they are normal and how to cope with them. So when I'm snapping at you, it's normal, I don't mean to and I'll try to work on it.
I feel like I'm so far along, 6 weeks is a long time. But really it's more like 2 weeks and that's not very long. But the fact that my baby will develop a nose this week is pretty neat. Also, 2 weeks may not be very long but it's an eternity for me to keep a secret like this. No idea how much longer I'll hold out. At least until next Monday, maybe longer? Depends how the u/s goes on Friday I suppose.
