This week you are the size of a raspberry and finally weigh in (at .04 oz its not much)! You are moving around like crazy and your tail is now gone. You are starting to develop taste buds as well. You are starting to change from an embryo to a fetus.
This week was a bit of a roller coaster. Nausea kicked me in the butt a little and all I ate one day was crackers. This was also the day my co-worker asked if I was pregnant. Guess those oyster crackers gave it away! Emotions are in full swing and hormones are kicking my butt with exhaustion, moodiness and weird eating habits. The only thing that really sounded good this week was chicken fried rice, something I don't normally eat. The weird dreams have started as well, although every dream I have the baby is a girl (yay!) Getting excited for next week, we have our first appointment with the midwives to check things out and have a 50/50 shot of hearing your heartbeat through doppler. Fingers crossed!
