Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct.

Yesterday was amazing! Nick planned a whole day out for me. We went down to the city to go shopping and get some good food! It started with breakfast at Chick-Fil-A. Then we drove the hour and half to OKC to target. I LOVE target, and miss it so much! I got some really comfy pajama pants (that I know I will be wearing often throughout this pregnancy) and a couple new shirts. Then we went to Qdoba for lunch.
Next we went to 2 baby stores! We were able to gather a bunch of ideas for baby's nursery! If we have a little boy, we know exactly what bedding we will be getting! Nick wanted to get it now because he liked it so much. But I know that would jinx us and we would have a girl. (Although Nick says a girl can like planes too). Here is a picture:
Of course we wouldn't get that little chair. But Nick loves the mobile because it has little planes on it (I'm still not 100% sold on needing a mobile, but I don't know). He also loves the lamp with the little plane on that too.
I feel like I'm carrying a boy, but everyone else seems to believe it's a girl. I guess we'll see!
Anyway, after going to the baby stores and window shopping, Nick took me to the mall. An ACTUAL mall! The mall we have here in town is pathetic. I got some new tennis shoes since I got a new job and I want my feet to be comfortable.
After visiting the foot locker, we went to a couple of the maternity stores. Yes, I know it's still early, but I got a couple shirts anyway and I really like them! I'm a little sad because after trying them on last night after eating a lot yesterday I really filled them out. :/
After walking around the mall for a while we went to the zoo! I absolutely love the zoo! We walked all over, took some pictures and really enjoyed being together! And after spending a few hours there, Nick took me to Toby Keith's! I got to have my salad! It was an amazing day! Nick did so good! How in the world am I going to top that for Father's day?!
I still stress myself out though. I read online all these women who go to their first doctor visit and they don't hear a heartbeat. Or the baby stopped growing several weeks back. I'm so scared to have that happen! Having the nauseous feeling I get every once in a while really helps me, keeps me grounded. It's all in God's hands. I just have to pray that everything is fine.
I've contemplated buying a fetal doppler. I would be able to hear babies heart beat. That would for sure keep my mind at ease. But I know there could be a day where I may not be able to find it and completely flip out, even though everything could be just fine. I just have to try to stick it out to my appointment in 2 weeks. I'm so happy it's only down to two weeks! When I made the appointment I had to wait 7! Time is flying by, I just hope everything is fine.
I've really rambled on long enough. I've got to go grocery shopping now. I'm bringing Nick this time so I don't go over board on the ice cream! :)
By the way, I'll have a belly picture next week. I'm hoping the bloat will be gone by then. I don't like looking and feeling like I'm 5 months pregnant.
