So today I turned 7 weeks pregnant.
At 7 weeks, Your baby’s hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs – although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny baby fingers and toes you’re daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that’s the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry (click here to view source)
My uterus has doubled in size in the past five weeks. Eating feels like a chore, thanks to morning sickness. I need to pee more than usual because of my increasing blood volume.
So I went to see the doctor and he told me that, yes, I am pregnant.
So I have done a bit of research and here are some of the stats on my baby!
- The baby is due on/around 23rd December 2017 (we might have a Christmas baby!)
- Conception likely took place on 1st April (which makes sense…)
- 34 days have passed since the start of my pregnancy (apparently). That’s 12%, and means I have 246 left.
- My baby is 4 weeks old.
- This time next year, the baby will be 16 weeks old!
The next few days will be busy, so sorry if there are not any blogs, but I am so excited!
On Tuesday I found out something. Something really big.
My period was really late. I didn’t really think anything of it, until I looked and it was about 10 days late. That’s kinda unusual for me.
So my boyfriend told me to go and take a pregnancy test, just in case. So I went out and bought one (which was not fun…) and took it.
And it was positive.
It wasn’t too unexpected, but it still blew me away. I’m pregnant: I’ve got a baby growing inside me!
Tomorrow I will bring a bit more info on the stats and due date, because I’ve got a doctors appointment later today.
