10 Weeks-Double Digits
Well, we made it to double digits and only a few more weeks in the first trimester to go! The little munchkin is about an inch and a half long now and his/her organs are formed and beginning to function. So far this past week I have few to no symptoms, which is nice but I still don't feel pregnant, alas I doubt I will until I start feeling those kicks! As you can see from the picture this week, I've got quite a bloaty belly going on. It's frustrating when it looks right but you know it's just pudgy-ness. We watched the National Geographic special "In the Womb" last night and it was so amazing to see all the drastic changes that have taken place so far. In just 10 weeks (technically 8) our baby has gone from a single cell smaller than the period at the end of this sentence to a tiny baby with fingers, toes and a little beating heart. He, or she, still has a lot of growing to do though. Everybody asks us if we are going to find out the gender, and the answer is of course we are. If you know me, you know how impatient I can be so we will be finding out on September 9th. That's only 37 days away! I'm so excited to find out whether or not we are going to have a Roxas or an Ellie. To be honest we both want a boy first but of course as long as it's healthy we really don't care. Heck the kid could have a third eye and an extra foot and I probably wouldn't care as long as it was mine. That's all I've got for now, I'll update again in a week.
