Pregnancy Week 4

This week marks the beginning of the embryonic period. From now until 10 weeks, all of your baby's organs will begin to develop and some will even begin to function. As a result, this is the time when she'll be most vulnerable to anything that might interfere with her development.
Right now your baby is an embryo the size of a poppy seed, consisting of two layers: the epiblast and the hypoblast, from which all of her organs and body parts will develop. (From Baby Center )

            How me and Graeber #3 are:

Symptoms: I really have not had any yet. Really my first indicator was vivid crazy dreams. I also am super bloated, and gassy. I am pretty gassy normally though, so I don't count that as a major symptom lol. 
Cravings: Sweet things! Chocolate, ice cream, and fruit. 
Things that make me go YUK! : Well nothing really yet. Only time will tell!

Gender: We will find out! I hope its a girl this time, but if its a boy I will be happy too!
Something I am excited about: I am excited to be pregnant again! I love being pregnant! This will be our last baby so I am really going to enjoy this! I am also excited about telling the inlaws on Friday. Its my mother in laws birthday too, so we are going to give a picture of my positive pregnancy test in her birthday card. :) ( I will let yall know how that goes!)
Doctors and such: I made my first appointment. It is set for June 4th at 2:00pm. That sure seems like ages away!!! I still am with my OB. I still have not ruled out the midwife. I really want a water birth, but I will talk it over with my OB and feel her out. 

I will update with pictures of me and my bump later, right now I just look fat. I am still waiting to tell my mother. I am sure it wont be a happy feeling, since she has told both Jared and I that we do not need any more babies. I might be wrong, but I am still scared. I will tell her after my first appointment. :/
