How far along? 8 weeks
Baby's size and stats? Baby is the size of a RASPBERRY and a total of .5 inch. Baby's ear lobes are developed and he/she begins to wiggle his/her arms and legs this week.
Gain? I have gained 1 pound so far. (But we'll verify tomorrow at my appt.)
Maternity clothes? Nope, not yet. I did wear a pair of maternity pants the other day and they were soooo comfortable! I may be putting on more of those sooner rather than later. :)
Sleep? I'm sleeping ok just waking up to pee every few hours.
Foods I am/ am not loving? Still can't imagine eating any meat right now. I am starting to tolerate sweets (probably not a good thing). I've been trying to eat alot of yogurt, milk, and cheese since I'm not getting alot of protein from meat.
Best moment this week? My ultrasound tomorrow! I am over the moon excited. (Just wishing my hubby could join me).
Symptoms/Emotions? I am surprisingly not that emotional this week. I'm napping alot! It's probably because it's Spring Break, and my newest symptom (can't remember official term), but Heidi Murkoff's book describes it as itching of the palms and feet from increased blood flow and combination of estrogen/progesterone hormones. So, I'm not complaining although it's very uncomfortable. I have to believe that means something is going right in there!
Gender? Not quite sure yet. 83 more days! I have a "feeling" it's a boy.
Milestones: Making it to 8 weeks!
I am so thankful for a husband who shares my excitement and a God who answers prayers. Each time I begin to worry or think of "what-if's" He gives me a gentle reminder that He is in control and I can relax.
*I will post a picture tomorrow after my 8 week ultrasound. :)
Prayer Request: I do have a prayer request for a tww friend. I shared a very close due date with another girl and this weekend she lost her baby. Please pray for her and her husband as they begin to try again.
