How far along? According to our ultrasound today, Cricket is 8 weeks today!

What’s happening with the baby? During week 7, Cricket began to develop arms and legs and this week the hands and feet are beginning to form. About the size of a kidney bean, baby’s internal organs are busy forming and beginning to work, and the tail is almost gone.

Total weight gain/loss? I have lost about 2.5 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but I really need to buy some!

Symptoms? SOOOOOOO sick. All the time. Why did we decide to do this, morning sickness SUCKS!

Food cravings? No. Mostly still just figuring out what doesn’t sound horrible to me. Lately that has been a lot of bread, plain pasta, and chicken nuggets.

Anything make you queasy or sick? Everything. Everything makes me sick.

Sleep? The one time of day I don’t feel miserable! Yay, sleep!

Movement? N/a

Labor Signs? N/a

Gender? Ramzi Method says girl, heartbeat theory says girl

Wedding/Engagement Rings on or off? On

Best moment this week? Getting to see our little Cricket via ultrasound!!

Looking forward to? Getting past the morning sickness phase.


How old? 14 Months

Achievements this week/month? Her newest word is “bup”, which means “up”. Super cute!

Best moment of this week? Lying on the exam table seeing Cricket for the first time, and then turning and watching Bug smiling in her Daddy’s arms. We are so blessed.
