This week I am still feeling wonderful! Still bouts of nausea in the shower in the morning, but no trips to the bathroom. I have noticed that lately when I am asleep at night, that my dreams are becoming weirder and weirder. Some of them are quite frightening (to where I wake up with my mind reeling and cant go back to sleep) and others that I just find odd and amusing. I know that that is all part of this amazing process and the hormones that come with it. Kevin and I also have the special privilege of being able to hear our babies heart beat at home. Thanks to Nikki Runnels she let be borrow her at home Pocket Fetal Doppler from when she was pregnant. Now that it is easy to hear using a Doppler, it is very enjoyable to be able to sit in your own bed and hear this little "peach!" Thanks again Nikki!!
Your baby's the size of a peach! She's about 2.9 inches long and weighs about .81 ounces, and -- proportion-wise -- her head's now about 1/3 the size of her body. And even though she's still teeny, she already has fingerprints.
Hi Im Lauren Crooks, welcome to my blog! I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Kevin, since May 3, 2008! In early February 2012 we will be expecting our first child, a boy! We have 2 furry and four-legged children. Logan-a weimaraner and chocolate lab mix, and Wriggley-a blue weimaraner. Animals are my passion! I graduated from Auburn with a BS in animal sciences and I work at an animal hospital as a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I Love my job! I am so blessed, by God, to have a wonderful Husband who gets me, great family, and amazing friends! Hope you enjoy my blog!
