Last night I had two intervals of sharp cramping pain. My lower back tightened up and was accompanied by a cold sweat and me wanting to vomit. I went upstairs after these two awful cramps to go potty and when I wiped, it was like someone had cut me down there. It was pure red blood... Nothing heavy but there was a blood clot and it was enough to scare me half to death and caused a crying jig on the toilet... I was begging God to keep the baby safe and growing strong. This was the first time I had bleed at all, so yes it freaked me out!! Through the night the blood turned to light pink then by this morning it was brown. I called the IVF clinic anyways and they said as long as it is not a heavy period (soaking pad kind) not to worry about it. They want me to call tomorrow to see how I am doing. I told them how sore I was waking up this morning. My uterus and insides felt like it has had a good workout! With my tummy sore and watching it change shape and position, it kind of throws you off a bit. My tummy is becoming more pointy instead of bloated every where. Yesterday I was 7 weeks and 2 days pregnant and this is common around this time of pregnancy. I feel like the baby has grown so much just within the past couple days. The past 2-3 days I have been falling asleep from 3:00pm-5:00pm and I can't help it. I just pass out! All good signs and I just pray the pregnancy stays strong and moving forward. The bleeding is so stressful and if you have gone through what we have you will understand what fear we had gone through last night... Please keep us in your prayers and for the baby to stay strong.

At seven weeks, your baby enters a very busy stage. Between now and 20 weeks, he will grow rapidly. Body parts that formed in the first few weeks of life, such as the heart and brain, will become more specialised and complicated. He now has an appendix and a pancreas, which will eventually produce the hormone insulin to aid in digestion. Tooth buds, palate and tongue are forming, while his ears continue to develop and eyelids are starting to cover his eyes. Your baby’s skin is paper thin, and veins are clearly visible.

It has finally hit me today that we are really pregnant. It takes me a while for me to process things and once I saw the heartbeat and saw that life is thriving inside of me, I got SO excited!! I can't wait till we find out the sex of the baby :)

We are so grateful for the life living inside of me :) The Lord has been so gracious to me and my husband for allowing us to love the life He has handed to us... Thank you Lord for your comforting words from the bible and for you loving me. No matter what happens from this day on, you still created life and entrusted it to us.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

I woke up this morning to VERY sore breasts. I feel like some one has been using them as punching bags. Still cramping and the morning sickness is more of an all day thing. My uterus feels a bit heavy as well as lots of pressure. I think me taking the 800mg of progesterone a day has caused my Endo to flair up a bit on the outside of my uterus. But all in all I am doing good and getting excited over this upcoming ultrasound!!!! I pray our little ones are safe and thriving inside of me. It is slowly sinking in that we are pregnant. I can't wait to start a nursery... This has been such a dream of mine ever sense we got married. Buying a crib set and finding little things that make the nursery so cozy, sweet and calming. We are going to be going through a major change this coming month with us moving. So please pray we have a smooth transition and I can start to nest and feel okay with all the changes to come. I could really use prayer right now.

So far so good :) Just some cramping here and there but no spotting. I am starting to get morning sickness but more of an all day thing. It really depends on what I am smelling. My hairspray makes me sick as well as frying meat.. but I am loving chili!! I woke up and ate some for breakfast because cereal makes me want to gag... Weird I know. Feeling dizzy a bit but I think my body is starting to settle down some and is getting use to the babies :) Can't wait till two weeks from now when we go in for a ultra sound!! We are going to get a video camera so that we can tape it. I can't wait to hear there heartbeat!

Tomorrow I will be considered 4 weeks Pregnant.How Big is the Baby at Four Weeks Pregnant?
Your baby at 4 weeks pregnant is still incredibly miniscule, about .014 to .04 inches long. That is roughly the equivalent to 1/2 to 1mm long, which isn't very long at all. Your baby will slowly start changing by 4 weeks pregnant so that he or she starts resembling more like a small tadpole with eyes than an egg. That is quite an accomplishment for your little one!
Your Baby's Growth and Development
Your baby will be implanting furiously during pregnancy week 4 into the uterine lining, to ensure that he or she has a safe and secure home for the next nine months. Fetal development by and large is still in the earliest stages at this point. By now the blastocyst or ball of cells that is your baby will be imbedding deeper and deeper into the lining of the uterus. The amniotic cavity is forming and the placenta is starting to form.
