Anyway, I'm sure you're just anxious to hear the new fruit/veggie of the week, so without further ado:
We have olive week. Baby Klein is getting close to an inch. If you look at the size from last week, there has been some significant growth in the last 7 days. What we're looking forward to this week is facial features beginning to develop. So, if we were able to actually see our little one, it would look less alien and more human. Pretty exciting. We're also far enough along now that we should definitely be able to hear a heart beat at our next doctor's appointment, which is coming up really soon!
A few things this week that have made the pregnancy more real:
- A lady from our church gave us some baby clothes, and said that if we are having a boy, she'll bring LOTS more. It kind of made me laugh.
- That lady's daughter told me I was showing. I really am not, I was just wearing an unflattering jacket at the time. It took both me and the mother to convince her I really wasn't. It was kind of funny.
- Almost every time I see someone from church, they 1) ask me how I'm feeling or 2) offer help in whatever their area of expertise happens to be.
I'm thankful to be surrounded by such helpful and generous people. I have been a little overwhelmed by it at times. I hope that's normal. But really, I am grateful for it.
Look for another post soon. We have the dr. appointment Monday, so hopefully we'll find out some new, fun, and exciting things while we're there. In addition, I promised my mom that belly pictures would go up after each dr. appointment, so perhaps there will be something to look at besides fruit. (Although don't be disappointed because I'm really not showing yet)
As always, thanks for stopping by and for loving us and Baby Klein.
