8 Weeks!

That's right I'm 2 months prego already! My Baby journal this week says that the baby is not yet an inch long, the baby is taking on a more familiar human shape. The body straightens out a bit and the head becomes more erect. The embryonic "tail" is receding (it will eventually be the tailbone). The limbs, and toes are getting longer and, interestingly, the hands reach for each other over the heart. Facial features are becoming more distinct, too, and nerve cells in the baby's brain are making important connections.

I wanted to give a little update on how I'm feeling physically at this point. I am still having pretty bad morning sickness throughout the day. It is worse in the mornings and then if I eat anything throughout the day I start to feel sick again. So pretty much mornings and food aren't 2 of my favorite things right now. I am still on the zofran 2-3 times daily along with phernergan at night now. I also started getting a little sinus infection with a fever on Friday and my doctor had to call me in some antibiotics. I am noticing even though I'm losing weight from not keep much down, my pants are getting a little more snug and uncomfortable. I guess the sickness and tighter pants are the biggest changes I'm noticing right now. Oh and a fun change is that the shape of my tummy is changing! How could I forget that?!

Jonathan and I return to ART on Tuesday for our ultrasound and blood work. I will of course update you with pictures that afternoon.

I know you have no idea who I am, but I ran across your blog (long story) and realized you were going to the ART clinic. we went there last year (dr. long) and now have a little girl (shots and IUI) who just turned a year old. love the clinic in montgomery and birmingham! i remember every scare, every week, every ultrasound, every heartbeat, every kick, every milestone and i dont think i breathed a sigh of relief until I heard her scream! i also did progesterone shots. not fun but totally worth it! i will be praying for you over the next few months. you are in wonderful hands with the ART clinic!
