10 weeks

baby is the size of: a kumquat
how far along are you: 10 weeks 2 days
what's happening with baby:  tissues are organs begin to rapidly grown and mature.  tiny nails are forming on fingers and toes and peach-fuzz hair is beginning to grow on baby's skin.  baby is swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm.  the kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver are in place and starting to function.  baby's limbs can now bed.  the spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to strecth out from the spinal cord.  baby's forehead is temporarily bulging with the brain and sits very high on the head. 
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: nada.
sleep: pretty good
best moment this week: telling my friend karen. 
food cravings: peanuts
food/smell aversions: apparently black licorice is my kryptonite.  i was sitting next to a kid on the train yesterday who pulled some black licorice ropes out of his bag.  i could not switch seats fast enough!  i thought i was going to lose it right there on the train!
what do you miss: i had a really rough day on wednesday and would have killed for a dirty martini to take the edge off.  instead, i had a bowl of mint chocolate chunk ice cream.  good, but not the same.
