baby is the size of: a blueberry
how far along are you: 7 weeks 1 day
what's happening with baby: hands and feet are emerging. baby has doubled in size since last week. eyelid folds partially cover baby's eyes, which already have some color. both hemispheres of the brain are growing, and the liver is churning out red blood cells. baby has an appendix and a pancreas. a loop in the intestines is bulging into baby's umbilical cord, which now has distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to/from baby's body.
due date: according to babycenter.com's estimation, jan 11
maternity clothes: nope. in fact, everything fit a bit better this week
sleep: not so great, but i've been hot and stuffy
best moment this week: when matt told me he's going to start reading the book for dads-to-be that we borrowed from abriel (after he finishes lovely bones)
food cravings: nothing out of the ordinary
food/smell aversions: no aversions, but i had a square of dark chocolate on thursday and it left the absolute worst taste in my mouth. i hope pregnancy isn't ruining the taste of dark chocolate for me. i'll seriously cry.
symptoms: still some bloating and very mild boob soreness. i was nauseated monday and tuesday morning, but i also felt like i was fighting back a migraine
gender: still feeling girl
belly button: in
wedding rings: on
