This week you are the size of a blueberry! Right now you have doubled in size since last week and are generating one hundred new brain cells a minute! Your heart is becoming more complex and your permeant kidneys are forming along with your arms and legs.
This week was Thanksgiving week and we went to visit Stephen's brother Jeff and his wife Allison and their two kids, Pieper (4) and Peter (2). Allison guessed it right away when I refused a drink but they are so excited! We even got some diapers and a swing that the kids no longer use. We also traveled up to Maine (bucket list of visiting all 50 states- check!) The car ride went pretty well, some nausea started to kick in when I was passenger and on the way back from Maine to Connecticut I was "the worst passenger ever" when I had a bad headache and upset stomach. Luckily a little sleep and I was good the next day. Appetite still comes and goes but overall I would have to say I'm feeling pretty good. This week I think I have officially surpassed by "normal" jeans fitting. All of my "fat" jeans are in Iowa so I'm hoping some new jeans that I ordered come soon!
