{Week 8}

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

Lets see, I can no longer wear my jeans (haven't been able to wear them for a few weeks now), jean shorts (which had a bit more give so I got to wear them longer) or my "yoga" pants, not to mention any of my skirts! All because the waist bands don't stretch enough! I only have 2 pairs of pants I can wear and those were too big for me. I am nauseous off and on (but only threw up once) and I am tired more then normal (I have started taking naps during the day to keep up my energy). I haven't gained any weight, just got a growing tummy & boobs.

You know what? I wouldn't trade any of it! I am really enjoying this pregnancy, with the exception of the nausea.


  1. Week 8 already??!! Hope the nausea goes by quickly. That's the worst part IMO.

  2. So happy for you. I know it's not the easiest thing, but you seem so happy and that is wonderful. It will help so much.
