My Little Fig

In case I haven't told you yet, I've got a new life growing in my belly.

I don't feel pregnant yet. I just feel sick. I suppose the inability to sleep, frequent urination, omnipresent nausea, intermittent vomiting, and continuous fatigue that I feel should clue me in, but it still seems kind of unreal. I suppose it won't really feel real until I feel the baby moving around.

First visit with the doctor tomorrow, and hopefully we'll hear the heartbeat. Yea!

According to www.babycenter.com my baby has left the embryo stage and is now fully considered a fetus. Oh, I'm so proud of it! This week it is the size of a fig. I kind of miss when it was a blueberry or a kumquat. Saying "My baby is the size of a fig" just doesn't have the same ring as "My baby is the size of a kumquat."

Congrats! We hopr your fig is healthy. I remember reading baby center & noticing how every week the baby was the size of a different type of fruit too! Funny!

Sydney Wynder announced that you were pregnant to everyone at mutual last week. It was pretty funny. I thought I'd wait until you confirmed it to say anything to you. Congrats and I hope you feel better soon!

My favorite, yet most horrifying description from BabyCenter was the week when Logan was a jumbo shrimp with eyes on the side of his head.

Congratulations! As I type this I'm listening to my husband sing my daughter to sleep, and dying of jealousy. I wish I were pregnant again. All things come in time I guess.

Wahoo and Congratulations! I am so excited for you. Does this go back to the eucalyptus taste you were having?

I hope you start feeling better soon. I am always relieved to get to the second trimester and start feeling better. When are you due? What are you hoping for boy/girl?

Congratulations again and best of luck.
