Today I am 9 weeks pregnant which officially makes BOB a fetus! How exciting!
We were able to see BOB on Friday and he has come leaps and bounds from that little blob of cells we first saw. He was just under an inch big and has little arms and legs now…he was even caught wiggling around! This week he should get to about the size of a plum, approx 1 1/2 inches. We get to see him again on Friday for my last appointment with the fertility specialist…I will be graduating to my OB after that appointment and I have my first OB appointment next Wednesday. That’s going to be a sad day, I love my doctor and I can’t imagine going through the rest of this pregnancy without her.
I’m still feeling great, I only have an earlier bed time…but the last couple nights it has been interrupted by visitors…I just want to sleep straight through and not have my sleep interrupted. I’m starting to get a little pooch from BOB…and he definitely feels bigger as the day goes on and the more I am moving around. I had my sisters feel my uterus on Saturday because it felt big after walking around with them all day.
I also got to meet my newest nephew, Benjamin, this weekend. He was so tiny and so cute. He loved sleeping on my left boob! I can’t wait to see him again!
Without further ado…here’s the most recent picture of BOB – I love his little arms and legs!
***please note when I say “he” it is in place of the word “it” and by no means indicates that we know the gender nor does it mean I have a gender preference, it simply means I do not like the word “it” and until we know the gender BOB is a “he” simply because of the nickname we chose. I have been receiving lots of comments about the pronoun use and didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal but apparently it is.
