baby #2: 8 weeks pregnant

How far along? 8 weeks and 1 day, as of today!

How big is baby? The baby is about 1.7cm long {we saw it on ultrasound this morning!} and is the size of a raspberry or a kidney bean. We're growing! So in love. :)

How I’m feeling? I'm good! I'm relieved to have seen and even heard a heartbeat this week. Just want this little jellybean to keep on growing and developing well, one day at a time. Current heart rate was 170bpm!

How I’m changing? I'm bloated up the wazoo & trying really hard to keep calm and carry on.

Symptoms? BOOBS. Sore, sore boobs. Every now & again I get flash pains in my left boob, really bizarre. Cramping. Just odd flashes of queasiness, but nothing drastic. As long as I keep snacks up, it's not too bad.

Cravings? Juice. Orange mainly, or apple/blackcurrant. I also really want chicken nuggets, go figure.

Food Aversions? Eggs, no. No eggs. EVER. Blergh. I'm more in the head space of nothing ever sounding good.

Highlights this week? Seeing the baby again & hearing its heartbeat. Ticking some more days off the calendar!

The Belly? Still frumpy, and still bloated! How about a picture of the baby instead? I look at this shot and see a little wee crab, with pincers on each end {which I hope is a head to the left, leg buds to the right}... meet our little Nipper!
