Hey look at that – I’m caught up! Yea me!
To the point of this weekly update – today I am 8 weeks pregnant. My thing on BabyCenter.com still says 7 weeks – I think it’s a day behind.
Other things Baby Center says: webbed fingers and toes are poking out from baby’s hands & feet, eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from throat to the branches of developing lungs, and the “tail” is just about gone.
In the baby’s brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. The external genitals still haven’t developed enough to reveal whether you’re having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby – about the size of a kidney bean – is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can’t feel it.
I also weighed myself again this morning. I weigh the exact same as I did 4 weeks ago when we found out. I am wearing my Fossil jeans (size 28 or 6) today which still fit. I think they will last a few more weeks. Even longer when I buy my Belly Band from Run System 63 on Etsy. I haven’t decided on which ones I am buying yet but I like these two:
The one on the left (the black and white one) is $12 and the one on the right (the green one) is $22. It’s more because it’s longer. BUT she does sell two belly bands for $25 and you can pick from black, brown chocolate, white, grey or green. I may go that route – I am not sure yet.
What do you think???
