Eight Weeks!

We've made it through 8 weeks! 2 months. Wow.

So far, still not many signs of pregnancy. Still no morning sickness, and I'm crossing my fingers that maybe I've bypassed it altogether. Some girls I've talked to say it could still happen, and some say it won't. I like the second group of girls.

The feeling of gagging that I had earlier on has gone away for the most part. I've always got something in my purse to munch on...Jon laughed at me yesterday when he started to get hungry and I offered peanuts and raisins. When he said no, I offered a breakfast bar? No...well, I should have a mint in here somewhere....oh look! A cookie! I'm like a squirrel hoarding for the winter.

I'm taking belly shots, but nothing much to show there, so they're not worth posting, yet. I've always had a little pooch, but when I lay down, the pooch flattens out nicely. Not any more. The same pooch is there, but it doesn't flatten out. That's made some "borderline" pants not so comfortable, and Jon laughs at my hanging out at the house with my pants unbuttoned....don't tell him I did it at work the other day, too. :)

Hm...what else is different. Really not much. Haven't gained any weight, yet, which I think is good, considering that Newbie is only the size of kidney bean. I haven't been sleeping well, which makes me tired during the day. And I've been kind of crabby. They say PMS symptoms get worse during pregnancy, and I would say that's true. Let me extend a blanket apology now! :)

So how's Newbie doing? Well, this is what BabyCenter says:
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.
Pretty exciting, huh? We go to the doctor on Monday! Our first time to meet our little one! I cannot wait. I'll give you an update then!
