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.
