Today baby is 8 weeks old! Only 7 more months until we are able to hold our baby. Nothing has really changed this week except that my symptoms have been added to. I now have raging morning sickness, fatigue, and heartburn. My stomach and throat hurt all of the time because they have been so abused. I also cannot open the fridge without gagging...it really is ridiculous. On a happy note, our next appointment is on March 5th which is only a week away! At that appointment we will set up our next sonogram, which will be around 11 or 12 weeks. By then baby will actually look like a human and not a blob. We are very excited about seeing our little baby again.
Above is my 8 week belly. Honestly, there is nothing to see except a little bloat, but it will be fun to compare pictures each week to see how I grow. Right now, I can't fit into any of my pants. I went to find a few new jeans and realized I was going to have to go up 2 sizes in order for me to button them. I decided to give in a buy a few pair of maternity jeans. I just roll the panel down and they are very comfortable.
I found this on another blog and loved it. I am going to fill it out each week.
