Baby Caterpillar - 7 Weeks.

Now I've finally passed the longest week in history where 6 weeks actually took me 15 days since I was put back 8 from my scan, I'm finally finding things are going back on track. Thank goodness! 
At 7 weeks & 5 days my doctor, who I've decided to do shared care with, booked me in for another scan that afternoon since the last scan put me back so far behind. But little Caterpillar is doing SO well, with a heartbeat now of 174bpm! Fast beating bubby! It also measured 8 weeks, so it's growing beautifully too! So beautiful. I feel a lot more excited now. This is ACTUALLY HAPPENING!! 


Jydan gets really scared of Mummy being sick, and Mummy is sick a fair bit. He screams for me and cries out Mum. The poor little thing. We are working on reassuring him, and I'll make a social book soon that will hopefully explain things to him a bit easier. 
Mints have been my favourite thing lately, and savoy bikkies. I got some mints because I'm over heating so much, and the bikkies are helping with my nausea. 

Symptoms this week:

Constipation.
All Day Sickness (badly).
Exhaustion.
Sciatic Nerve Pain. 
Bloating.
Over heating.
Hot sweats.
Lots of peeing!

Weight gain:500 grams

Size of baby:A blueberry! (The lady who did the ultrasound said peanut)
Baby's doing this week:
Making hands and feet!

Time left:
33 weeks. 

Guessing baby's gender:
Girl.

Nickname for baby:
Caterpillar - because of the hungry caterpillar themed nursery.

Cravings:
None.

OMG!!!!! I'm so excited for you, congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry you're sick all the time. Don't worry, Jydan will be fine. Kaylee saw me in some pretty bad situations and was really scared, but kids bounce back and she forgot about it quickly. And giving him a sibling to be best buddies with is more than worth it!!
