Baby Buckout: 7 weeks 3 days

God is creating yet another beautiful life inside me! I am praying daily for the safety and health of the little one.  I had some bleeding with Hadassah at 9 weeks.. so I am hoping I have none with this baby. :( And two miscarriages before her. So far so good!

I am of the few woman who don't get morning sickness. ( I am so sorry for those that do!)  My first trimester consist of being extremely exhausted and in constant hunger.  This is the first time I am nursing baby while being pregnant... which means I NEED to be drinking plenty of water. I am not good at that either! I have chilled it on running too. All in due time, I will find another form of exercise;)

Here is an amazing photos I found on the baby this week. In just a few days the baby is growing so fast!!! How precious are Your thoughts toward us oh God!

"This week your baby has an amazing growth spurt. At the beginning of this week, your baby is approximately 4 to 5 mm and by the end of the week it has more than doubled to 11 to 13 mm! Your baby weights approximately 0.03 ounces. Most women are ready for the world to know they are pregnant. Even though you have not changed very much yet, it will come soon! You might have gained a small amount of weight by now, but it should only be a couple of pounds at this time. It is not unusual to lose a few pounds or remain the same though. Internally, cervical mucus is thickening and will form a plug in the cervical canal. The plug seals your cervix throughout the pregnancy and it will be expelled prior to delivery when your cervix begins to dilate. 

Your baby's leg and arm buds are longer now and they have divided into segments where the hands and feet will be. The hands and feet also have an area where the fingers and toes will begin to form. At this point of your pregnancy, the heart is bulging from the body and it has divided into right and left chambers. The brain's hemispheres are continuing to grow and the air passages into the lungs are visible. Your baby's eyes are beginning to get pigment. The nose is developing and the beginning of the face can be seen. The baby's abdomen is developing quickly and the appendix and pancreas are already present. Your baby's digestive tract is beginning to form and the hindgut is present. The shape of the talk can still be seen, but it will fade in 3 or 4 weeks. "

7 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. 
Psalm 139
