8 weeks

Baby's now the size of a raspberry!
Baby is growing like mad, putting on about a millimeter every day and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Though you can't feel it yet, baby is moving those little arms, legs, and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.

Today I hit 8 weeks preggo! I'm excited....kinda. The little raspberry has been making life very difficult this week. Yesterday all I wanted to do was eat, but every time I tried NOTHING tasted good except the oh-so-good for me ice cream. Today I've got some sort of cold thing and of course, I'm being a baby about it. I just feel like everything is the end of the world due to hormones. Stephen has been great at comforting me and letting me go to bed at 9 almost every night. He's a champ, and I don't know how I would get through this pregnancy without him!! We're going to the doctor tomorrow (on his birthday) and we're gonna get to hear the heartbeat (hopefully)!!! Grandma Jenny and Auntie Lindanne are going with us too!

I can't complain about everything, because my nails have been growing like mad and my hair is nice and full of body (increased oil though). I've got a little bit of a pooch going on at the bottom of my tummy but it comes and goes. I'm still bloating up enough that I have to use the bella band for almost everything.

7 weeks!

So I'm not going to be a complete copy-cat, but I'll give credit to Becky for the idea. 
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, or in my 8th week however you like to think/say it. My little embryo finally is starting to look a little normal and now just looks like a manatee instead of a weird contorted thing. 

Morning sickness has not been fun, and it's definitely just pregnancy sickness. Doesn't limit itself to just one time of the day. I have a pretty good appetite though. I've had my first reoccurring craving and that was pineapple but now I'm having trouble even looking at the stuff. Same with cheeseburgers. 

I scheduled my first appointment for June 10th but then I switched midwives and now my first appointment will be on Stephen's birthday, May 25th. Sadly he won't be able to go with me but his mom is going so I'll have a proud grandma there with me :)
