Last Thursday, our visit to the doctor confirmed it...our little angel's on its way!
Seeing our baby's heartbeat and hearing the doctor say that everything looks normal took my worries away. It's still a long way to go...but each day that passes we get really excited.
Quoting babycenter.com, here is what our baby's like in my tummy at 6 weeks:
"This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute — almost twice as fast as yours — and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil bean."
People close to me would know that we never expected to get pregnant this early since I had a complicated reproductive cycle and I did encounter several gynecological issues when I was still single. So this is quite a phenomenon to us already and is definitely God's greatest gift to us. We are doing our very, very best to take care of this gift.
