4w1d.


well baby, you are officially in there!

measuring at just 4 weeks:
  • Implanted snugly in the rich lining of your delicious uterus.
  • Still less than a millimeter long.
  • Seriously, a MILLIMETER. Go pull out a ruler and wrap your mind around that.
  • I will wait.
  • Okay, that little millimeter is growing three different cell layers already — the ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm.
  • In case you FOR SOME REASON don’t remember high school biology class (shame!), those are the earliest beginning of your baby’s nervous system, hair, skin, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, liver, thyroid, skeleton, blood system, connective tissue, urogenital system and muscles. Oh, IS THAT ALL?

we got our faint bfp at 10dpo. thats pretty early! 
at 14dpo (11/13), i went in to the doctor for my first hcg beta = 238!
at 16dpo (11/15), i went in for my second beta. they were hoping to see it up by 80%... = 612!

IT MORE THAN DOUBLED. woo who! keep on keepin on baby.

i also peed on my first FRER on 11/11 instead of sticking to the wondfos. i was so afraid to do this because the pink dye tests can be so sensitive, but i had to know  before calling the doctor! up next on monday morning - peeing on the digital!

and because i told you i had an addiction of wondfos...




i feel so blessed. so happy. so surprised. 
i am in awe.
