Almost half way through week 9! The sickness has somewhat subsided...YAY!!
This week Baby E is the size of a grape, weighing just a fraction of an ounce. He/she is finally starting to look more like a human and the tale is GONE! (I was pretty pumped about that part haha) His/her heart finishes dividing into the four chambers and the valves are starting to form as well as his/her teeth. Baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. (WE CAN'T HARDLY WAIT!!!) His/Her eyes are fully formed, but his/her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. He/She has tiny earlobes, and his/her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. Next week is a big week for Baby E....but I'll tell you about all that next week :)
Still working on baby daddy with the potential names. He doesn't want to commit until we know the sex....he's killing me. He really thinks he has some say-so...haha Right now he says the baby's name is peanut. How cute, right?? He really is excited :)
BTW...ritz crackers and peanut butter are pretty dang yummy...lard butt
