Today is the last day of my 12th week, and I have been feeling much better the past few days. I think my nausea is finally gone and I can feel my energy starting to return. I actually feel pretty normal. I am still eating a lot, but the good news is that most things sound good to me again! It was so frustrating to be hungry every hour and not be able to find anything I wanted to eat! So glad that part is over too.
Tomorrow starts week 13 and at that point the baby is about 3 inches long (about the size of a nutter butter cookie) and weighs approximately 1 ounce. On their little tiny fingers they already have a fully developed fingerprint! Can you believe it?
Many people have been asking if we’ll find out the sex of the baby, and if so when that will be. We plan on doing a 3D ultrasound at around 18 weeks where we will (fingers crossed) be able to discern the gender. We’ve heard the ultrasound tech will also give us digital images on a disc, so maybe we can post a picture here for you to see. Happy 4th of July!
