8 Weeks


How Far Along: 8 weeks

Size of baby: Baby Smithwick is the size of a kidney bean.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: No loss. No gain.

Maternity Clothes: Regular clothes for now.

Gender: We have no idea. One day I have a "feeling" Baby Smithwick is a girl and the next day it'll be a boy.

Movement: No movement. It's too early.

Cravings: Tomatoes. I want tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato soup! And I never really cared for tomatoes.

Aversions: None as of now!

Symptoms: Hunger and fatigue.

Labor Signs: None. WAY too early.

What I miss: I miss drinking diet cokes. My doctor said one a day, but I decided to give them up completely.

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing the baby again in 10 days! And the next few months!

Weekly Wisdom: Rest. Rest. Rest. And eat healthy snacks.

Best Moment this week: Seeing Baby Smithwick on the ultrasound machine again. I can't believe how much he/she has grown in such a short amount of time. We got to see the arms, legs and the spine. Too bad the pic doesn't give you a better picture.

Funny about the tomatoes!! For my first 8 weeks I was OBSESSED with lemonade. Lemon anything, really. But it had to be the sweetest, sourest, strongest lemonade you could find.

Ahhhh the fatigue. I can't wait to get my energy back!!

Hope hunger and fatigue are continue to be your only symptoms!

Have a great weekend!!

I craved fresh tomatoes with salt and pepper on them when I was pregnant with my boys. I couldn't get enough of them. Maybe your going to have a boy! Either way is still so exciting.
Can't wait to keep up with all your baby updates! You already make an adorable pregnant momma!

You look adorable and SO happy! :) Will you get lots of ultrasounds because of the clotting disorder to see how Baby Smithwick is growing? It's so neat to watch how much they change in just a matter of a few days. :)
