The last week of my first Trimester!

This week the little one is about 3 inches crown to rump – roughly the size of a jumbo shrimp! Its weight is now a full ounce and even though it is so tiny, it is a fully formed baby! Isn't that incredible?! I even read he or she will start to urinate the amniotic fluid that is swallowed…kinda gross, but goes to show everything is starting to work! That could also explain why I had to get up twice last night to go potty, which is the most I've had to yet!

I’ve already had some vicious bouts with 2nd trimester heart burn, but nothing I can’t live through…just have to be sure to have my Tums with me! After we get back from vacation I’ll cut out the Unisom and we’ll go from there!
