How big is the peanut?
"Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce."
Total weight gain/loss?
3.0 lbs as of this morning
Still doing the rubber band trick!
Best moment this week?
Seeing our baby at the 8w5d sonogram! I actually have been starting to feel sensations of the baby doing flip flops in there. People do say that you feel the second baby waaaaay earlier than the first. I think they were right!
No cravings, just eating everything in site though.
Not this week.
Harmony test scheduled for 8/24. Results in 7 business days!
What's happening this week:
"She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain."
A little one. Next belly pic at 10 weeks!
I haven't been documenting symptoms lately because there aren't that many! I am lucky to not have any (now that I can use the doppler for reassurance). Still vivid dreams, but rarely are they sexual - they are usually scary. Typically a tiny bit tired after work with a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiny bit of nausea when I'm tired. I have had a few boughts of nausea here and there in the middle of the night (8w and 9w nights exactly). Boobs are bigger. Headaches here and there in the evenings. Veiny.
