mom's view

i finally figured out how to get online and add my bits and pieces to this site. i have my next doctor's appointment in a couple of days. i'll be able to hear it's heart beat this time. last time i could see the little thing pumping a million miles a minute, but this time, it should be audible. that will be exciting. the most exciting thing to me is that my first trimester is almost over. the first trimester is HELL. I have been sick and tired the whole time. Lately I get dizzier with every step. That has something to do with my uterus moving to a new spot in my body and using all my blood flow to do so, so my brain isn't getting the nourishment it needs. My sense of smell has also heightened and even the good scents make me want to hurl sometimes. Changing diapers is not the funnest thing. I dry heave every time. If you've seen me in the last 3 months and I've been moody or looked confused, it's because i would have rather been sleeping.
that's all for now. i'm too tired to think any longer.

Weeks 11 & 12

So now the little booger has real ears starting to form on the sides of its head where before they were gill like slits down around the neck. Its eyes are no longer on the sides of its head so it doesnt lood like a tadpole anymore. Little hairs are coming out all over its body. From crown to booty its about 9 or 10 cm long. For all of you who still think in the archaic terms of the foot and inch thats about 3.5 inches. Although its starting to move around a little bit christy wont be able to feel it till about the 4th month.
