What’s happening in there? Week 8 update

Monday, October 19, 2009

We are officially in Week 8, people! That means by the end of this week, I will be two months pregnant — and one month away from spreading the news publicly.

What’s up with Baby during Week 8?
  • She/he measures 8 – 11 mm in length
  • Little Baby has a face! His/her lips, tongue nostrils and buds for baby teeth are becoming more obvious.
  • Fingers and toes are starting to show, but are still webbed
  • An ultrasound this week would show the baby’s “fluttering heart and reflex movements”
What’s up with Mama during Week 8?
  • Your uterus is now the size of an orange, and your waistline “may be expanding” (Yup)
  • Your breasts are tender and swollen (Double yup)
  • You are probably experiencing morning sickness (Triple yup)
  • It’s normal to have pimples and other skin problems (Nope, not yet)
* P.S. This whole “you are seven-weeks-pregnant but in your eighth-week” thing is confusing, isn’t it?

So what do you think?
