Well i'm now a full ten weeks and Babylove is the size of a...
I know attractive! lol. With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will too.) He's also swallowing fluid (yummy! What's wrong with this kid? Didn't his/her mother say not to swallow the bath water!) and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys (Yea for pee!), intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout my pregnancy.
If you could take a looksey inside my belly, you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.
Aww We have a PRUNE! Actually this is a GREAT intro into my tropic for today... by rather embarrassing topic that i was thinking twice about posting, BUT i thought this MIGHT help someone... EVEN THOUGH i had this happen to a friend in her pregnancy and i didn't heed her warning... HEED MINE!
So I've already covered the part where you become QUITE gassy in pregnancy, lovely i know. Well it does get worse... sorry. So Saturday Chris and i went out to dinner with the in-laws for mothers day. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner of all you can eat crab legs! I LOVED IT! But there was one problem... the butter. At least i think it was the butter... i can only guess here. Sure enough towards the end of the meal i start rumbling, i excuse myself to the restroom, take care of business... we're doing okay! Time to go home... a 40 minute ride... in a closed care with my in-laws... OOOPS okay it's okay, they get it we'll just roll the window down and laugh it off... hee hee (cringe!!)
AHH we made it home! PERFECT! Upstairs to change, ooops there goes another one, hee hee who cares i'm up here alone! LET HER RIP!!!! No, not such a smart idea... apparently my flagellates are no longer just air. (Dum dum dum) That's right ladies and gentlemen (if you're still reading this) i had to promptly change my underwear because we had a little "leakage". Could you imagine if this would have happened at the restaurant or in the car!! LUCKILY i was home so i learned my lesson ALONE but now every time i get a little rumble i'm scared to just let it sneak out... so now since i'm running to the restroom every half hour to pee anyway... why not UP the trips so i can keep clean pants.
Eh Maybe i should borrow some of my grandmothers diapers and just call it a day!
