Week 9-12

So i'm actually in week 11. but here's a pic for weeks 9-12

And here's the discription on the website-

The heart is almost completely developed and the heart rate can be heard on a Doppler machine at the doctor’s office. Most major organs and tissues have developed and red blood cells are now produced in the liver. The face is well formed and the eyes are almost fully developed. The eyelids will close and not reopen until the 28th week. Arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, and toes are fully formed. Nails and earlobes start to form and tooth buds develop in the gums. Fetus can make a fist with its finger. Testosterone (male sex hormone) is produced by the testes in male fetus.

I have my first midwife appt. on the 29th, and i'll be sure to post here the heart rate :-) we should be able to hear it by then. I am very much looking forward to starting our midwife circuit! Its become a fun family tradition, we go to an appointment on thursday once a month do the museums in Tacoma, maybe go to Rock pizza for pizza buffet, if funds and timing is right... The kids come with to the appointment, and get to hear the heartbeat. Our midwife is super family friendly, which i LOVE and everyone gets to be a part! its great! And we get to do it all over again!

PTL! I hope your pregnancy goes well. I'm glad you have a midwife you like. We had a hard time finding one last baby.
