Here we are week 7. So far I'm still feeling pretty good. I did get sick once last week, but that has been it. I am now drinking less, to almost no coffee. I got to this point with Aiden too, where my beloved coffee just tastes bad to me. Then in a couple months I'll be fine and drinking it daily again. I'm also feeling dizzy/faint more often, so I'm now taking my cool showers again. In this 85* degree heat it sure feels refreshing. I'm still craving fruit a lot, but not much else. Perhaps some chips and salsa, I did go on a binge the other day. Oh I guess I also had Brussels sprouts and watermelon for lunch last week, that was a bit odd too - at least it's healthy!
The baby this week is, as you can see, the size of a blueberry. Here is what the bump says about baby this week:
Baby's brain -- both hemispheres! -- is growing fast, generating about 100 new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby's third!) is now in place.
Next week is our first appointment and ultrasound. We hope to only see one heartbeat, but who knows. :)
