Peanut - 8 Weeks


Today is - Saturday January 5, 2012

How far along - 8 weeks today.

Total weight gain - still at 5lbs  

Baby is the size of - A large raspberry

Whats going on with baby - Peanut now measures about 1.6cm. His embryonic tail is just about gone, and all his organs, muscles and nerves are beginning to function. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. Peanuts hands now bend at the wrist, and his feet are starting to lose their webbed appearance. His eyelids cover more of his eyes and taste buds are forming on his tongue. 


What going on with Mummy - Your pregnancy is changing your figure as well. Your breasts may have grown large enough that you'll need bigger bras with better support than your old ones.  - Yep! 

You may notice your waistline expanding as well, forcing you to pack away your favorite jeans until next year. - Yep!


Maternity clothing - Nope. Although I have a shopping date a week on Monday to go and get some maternity trousers.

Sleep - Still sleeping loads. 

Movement - Too soon.

Food Cravings/Aversions - The thought of food still disgusts me. Nothing seems appealing. 

Symptoms - The nausea is still relentless. It starts about 30 minutes after I wake up and doesn't go away until I go to sleep. I have developed a new symptom.. The metallic taste in my mouth. Yeah, not a fan off that. 

How is this pregnancy different from the first - The nausea is worse this time around by 100 times. I'm more tired as well but that's probably because this time I have a three year old to run around after.

Best moments this week - Finally kicking myself up the behind and refusing to feel sorry for myself.. I'm looking forward to my first midwife appointment on Wednesday :)
