A rare weekend post from me, but I want to get to live posts, so here is my post for 8 weeks!!
This was me at 8 weeks (June 14- June 21)!
Still not showing anything yet
I do feel bloated, especially after I eat, so if I had taken this picture after I ate breakfast it would look like I was at least 12 weeks pregnant! Ha. This week our little nugget is the size of a raspberry.
According to BabyCenter.com, “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.”
ahh so cute!
We got to see our little nugget for the first time this week
And we got to see the heartbeat, but I still wanted to wait until I was 12 weeks along to announce it on here, and BOY was it hard to keep this a secret for so long. I got teary eyed when we saw our little nugget’s heartbeat. It was the most wonderful thing I have ever experienced in my life, words cannot describe our joy.
We told Warren the night we got to Chicago and him and Erik took shots.
He was very excited, but told me if I ever think of getting a minivan he will kill me. Don’t worry Warren I won’t! At the wedding that weekend I told Luke and Allie, and of course neither of them believed me, so they had to confirm it with Erik.. Why do people think I am always joking around ahh it was good times.
I also decided that instead of a letter to baby S, I will just post a spark notes version of what has been going on each week.
Spark notes version:
