9 weeks!!!

2 months has come and gone!! Working on our 3rd month. I'm more tired than ever. Nausea hasn't been too bad for a while until today. Actually it started last night. I cooked a dinner I had been craving. All was going well until I put it on my plate. Couldn't touch it. Couldn't handle the sight of the hamburger meat. Still the thought makes me...ugh, let's not go there. Today was a hard day. And to top it all off I think i have a pinched nerve in my tailbone/hip area. A terrible pain EVERY time I step. Not fun!!!! a week from tomorrow we will finally get to see this growing baby. Speaking of is what 9 weeks will bring bug is nearly an inch long – about the size of a grape – and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She or he is starting to look more and more human. All the essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form – as do his or her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. 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. The eyes are fully formed, but the eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. The baby has tiny earlobes, and the mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct.

I broke down and bought a few pair of maternity pants. I won't say I was 100% in need of them, but the comfort was becoming needed. Being around 22 first graders and up and down all the time it only makes since. good choice!!!

No pictures yet!!! Maybe next week I will work up the courage! :)

Until then...
