12 Weeks - Our Little Plum
Don't think I forgot about the weekly update....
This week our baby's digestive system is starting to practice contraction movements (so baby will be able to eat), the bone marrow is making white blood cells (so baby can fight infections) and the pituitary gland is starting to produce hormones (so baby will be able to have babies-but not for at least 30 yrs!).
I am still feeling great. Occasional days or moments of nausea, but overall great. I have really been blessed by feeling well thus far. I have lost the 2lbs I had gained but in the last couple days I have really been getting my appetite back and I don't think I'll have any problems gaining all the weight. Our next doctor's appt is on Tuesday and we should be able to hear the baby's heart beat. I think that will make it all the more real. Stay tuned.
