18.5 weeks

Today marks 18.5 weeks, and im almost half way through! Bean is approx. 5.6 inches long & weighs 6.7 oz. There is not much significance in the development this week, except reflexive movements are beginning to take place...i.e., blinking, mouth movements, sucking,swallowing, yawning, and stretching.
I feel the Bean moving around all through out the day now, and its making this become much more real for me! I had my 18.5 check up and got to see little bean! He/She was kicking, touching it's face, opening and closing its tiny mouth, and being a bit camera shy if you ask me!
My Dr. says I have a "low lying" placenta....he says not to worry because hopefully it will move up before 28 weeks. so I'm not going to stress about it.

Today helped me realize nothing else matters besides me and my little baby! So the amount of turmoil I've been subjecting myself too, came to an end today. Things will start to look up for me! Here's a quote that I will say to myself over and over to keep my head straight!

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." --Samuel Beckett
