5 Weeks

OMG! We are 5 weeks today! Our first beta on 16DPO came back at 309 and our P4 was 15.1, which meant I didn't have to take the progesterone supplements. Something we were very concerned about with the extensive spotting that I usually have.

We have our first ultrasound this Thursday @ 5w2d. We should be able to see the yolk sac. We might be able to see the heart flicker but it could be a bit to early for that.

What if it's twins? Twins are common in my family. Paul says he'd be pumped. I think I'm a bit scared of twins. Everything I'm already scared of times 2!

Baby Size: Orange seed

Activity: Baby is busy growing what will likely be the most adorable face to hit the earth. Also, working on kidneys, liver and lungs.

Momma Feels: Great! A touch queasy when something nasty happens. Like I could dominate in Hungry Hippos. A lot of the cramping has eased up, which has put my mind at ease as well. The boob pain is annoying more than anything. Still really freaking happy to have it all. More OCD and panicked than usual.

Daddy Feels: (These are all Mommas assumptions, Daddy can add if he sees fit) Very excited. Reading up on baby's growth and learning everything that's going on and can go one. Daddy watched a live birth last night, 2 in fact, he's going to be pretty awesome.

Mommas current obsession is car seats. What a selection! There is so much to know. Do we go convertible to last a long time or the ease of a travel system with infant carrier? What about safety ratings? Britax is expensive but are so highly rated. They only have one travel system, and I don't like the stroller with it at all but man are they high up on the ratings. It's not like we don't have 35 weeks to figure this out!
