How Far Along?
8 weeks - 4 days
Size of the Baby?
Won't know until sometime in May, but the heart rate was high yesterday (168)
so here's to hoping it's a girl (although we'll take whatever PJ is meant to be)!
I love sleep, but I wake up at least once a night to pee
Nausea only occurs when I don't eat breakfast on time. Horrible headaches.
Sore boobs, but those seem to have subsided for the time being.
What I Miss?
Nothing right now...I'm feeling relatively good.
The baby is now officially a "fetus" instead of an embryo.
Baby Center Update for week 8:
Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his/her eyelids practically cover the eyes,
breathing tubes extend from the throat to the branches of the developing lungs, and the "tail" is just about gone.
In the brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways.
You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other,
but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether or not its a boy or girl.
Either way, your baby (about the size of a kidney bean) is constantly moving and shifting though you still can't feel it.
