8 weeks! A little kidney bean!!

I am 8 weeks today... here are some developments happening this week:

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his 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 you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

I am feeling better this week... some fatigue still, and cramping on and off as things are growing, but overall pretty good. I am also HUNGRY all the time, always looking for something to eat! :-)
I will try to take a belly pic this week as well and post it when I find a moment.

Also, FRIDAY is our FIRST APPT! YAY!!! I can't wait! It will be so nice to have some reassurance that things are progressing as they should, and hopefully, see our little bean! Or at least hear a heartbeat! :-D
