I will forever have the image of that little flickering heartbeat in my mind. Coolest moment of my life...
JA and I celebrated by going to Tashmoo, our favorite restaurant in Mo-town. I had lost three pounds from my appointment in March, so I figured a few nachos would be OK. They are the tastiest!
At eight weeks, here's what's happening with the baby:
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.
Breakfast - Total raisin bran; 1% organic milk; two hard boiled eggs
Snack - bowl of blueberries, cherries, and raspberries; handful of almonds
Lunch - nachos; half a veggie wrap (yay - I ate veggies!)
Snack - JA's french fries - but I only ate like 10! :)
Dinner - left over veggie wrap; half a baked potato
