The Baby at 8 Weeks

Edit Posted by Admin with No comments
According to the email sent by the baby's size at 8 weeks is as big as the kidney bean. Whoaa, can't believe that. Here's the rest of the email.

Your baby is now 5/8 of an inch long, about the size of a kidney bean. 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. His arms have lengthened, too, and his hands are now flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart. His knee joints have formed, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways.

Joyie is starting to have nausea from time to time. Her belly is also starting to protrude. She's a bit choosy with regards to food and a bummer at times because of being moody hehe. But i guess those are but a part of being pregnant.
