Week 4- oh my Word!

As I stated the above post, according to the doctor i'm 4 WEEKS PREGNANT (omg)!! 

Wouldn't it be nice to log what's going on inside?  This is a copy and paste from Baby Gaga of baby M at week 4.

"By the end of this week the round and pointy ends of your pear-baby will become more defined leaving them looking something like a miniature manatee.  Despite your baby looking like a sea creature without any eyes, ears or mouth, the earliest forms of what will become the larynx, internal ear, and eye lens are already present, although you'd have to be a trained expert to recognize them for what they're going to be in the future.  At the same time, tiny bumps are forming on your little embryo which will eventually become arms, elbows, fingers, legs, knees and toes - in all their miniaturized perfection.

Lastly, your magical sea creature will be sprouting a tiny tail by the end of this week! Don't worry, it's just the end of their developing spinal cord that'll eventually recede into their lower back.  A microscopic photo would reveal what seems to be their vertebrae filling out the spine and tail. Although they aren't bones yet, but rather, the "bone seeds" that will give rise to your baby's vertebrae, ribs and sternum."

As for my symptoms:
  • intermittent gag/wretching throughout the day
  • minor bloating similar to a day or so when my period is to start
  • minor butterfly like feeling in lower abdomen similar to an imminent period start
  • random sharp stabbing pain without trigger
  • vivid dreams
  • sleeping awesome
  • no fatigue (but hard as I am still recovering post night shift)
  • no heightened sense of smell
  • food doesn't taste as good
  • mild-moderate constipation
  • some really heightened flavor for some other foods
  • some minor breast tenderness (or am I poking to check tenderness too much that it's causing tenderness? lol)
  • some minor breast firmness


What is on your mind?
