Miscarriage No.1 – 8 week Update

So here we go…

How far along? 8 weeks pregnant today.
Due date? Technically my due date is 10th Junehowever I tend to ovulate quite late and so I expect I am more likely to be due on 25th June. 2 weeks later. This would tie in with my positive pregnancy test and Rosalie’s due date which was 24th of the month.
How is baby doing?
I have decided to do these pregnancy updates in line with the dates calculated from the first day of my last period. Although I don’t actually think I’m that far gone! This makes the baby the size of a Raspberry. It weighs 0.04 ounces and is 0.63 inches long. It’s so weird to think that the baby is that size already when there are no obvious changes in how I look.
This week the baby’s testes or ovaries will develop. Although the sex of the baby was determined at conception. It’s taken until now for them to form.  The baby’s face has an upper lip, eyelids and tip of a nose and a tiny tongue is growing inside the tiny mouth. Fingers and toes are beginning to take shape. Reading this makes it seem all the more real!
Maternity clothes:  I have sacked off my skinny jeans. My uterus is now the size of an orange so it’s not suprising they were getting uncomfortable. I think I am going to purchase myself some Asos Maternity basic tops this week.
Stretch marks: No stretch marks. I have bought a tub of body butter but I am yet to start applying it.
Sleep: Sleep? What sleep? I feel like I did sleep better last night although I was still up 3 times. Once with Rosalie and twice for a wee. Nick has also got a bit of a cold so he was snoring loudly next to me.
Best moment this week: Hmm, nothing of note has really happened this week. I’m looking forward to having the next three days off.
Miss anything? Still Coffee, I think im going to switch the tea instead of decaf coffee. I find decaf coffee has a persuliar taste.
Movement: Not much feeling down there this week.
Gender: Unknown
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: I do have a cold , runny nose, headache. That combined with the pregnancy tiredness is not great. I went to bed at 8.30pm last night.
Spots! These have seemed to get a little better this week. I don’t seem to have new ones popping up every morning like I have done the last few weeks.Anything making you queasy or sick? No. I’m not sure if maybe I wont feel Nauseus this time of if it is because I’m not actually 8 weeks pregnant and it’s too early.

Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On
How I feel? I’m Feeling less annoyed by things this week. I felt a little overwhelmed that I couldn’t keep up with the chores last week. I do have a long list of jobs that need doing but that is ok. Hopefully Nick will help me make a start on them this weekend.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Getting my scan date. I thought I would have had it by now. I really want to have the dating scan so I know how far gone I am and when I am due. All these updates could be completely wrong!Update – I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks and 3 days based on the doctor’s original calculations, you can read about it here. Doctors advised my hormone levels at the time of miscarriage suggested I was only 6/7 weeks pregnant.
