8 Weeks

8 Weeks

Baby is now the size of a raspberry and is growing about a millimeter every day this week and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Eyelids cover baby’s eyes, breathing tubes extend from the throat to the branches of the developing lungs, and the “tail” is just about gone. In baby’s brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. And although you can’t feel it (yet!), baby is moving those little arms and legs and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.

J doesn’t care for raspberries but I’m sure she likes this one! 🙂

As you can see, baby is busy in there this week! You all know that we got to hear his/her strong beating heart on Thursday (which in my humble opinion was the best day yet!) and today, baby is putting his/her party pants on and having a celebration. Today is our Big Gay Jewish Wedding Party and we are very excited to see our friends and family, get a chance to catch up, and share our joyful news in person. Today is going to be a great day for the Joneses!

Now, I have to go grab breakfast for my “babies” (I call J and the baby, collectively, “babies”). J’s finally started gaining a little bit of an appetite, and me…well I don’t function well without breakfast. Wish us luck and a great time today with little to no glitches! 🙂
