Watch Sesame Grow, weeks 8-10

8 weeks
Edition: I Don't Know What I Should Do with My Arms
Size of baby: 1/2'' or approximately a kidney bean.
Fun fact: Arms began to lengthen and hands are now flexed at the wrist and meet over the heart heart. 

9 weeks
Edition: We had Some Technical Difficulties with the Picture

Size of baby: 1'' or a grape/gummy bear.
Fun fact: The heart finished dividing into four chambers, and the valves started to form- as did tiny teeth. 

10 weeks
Edition: I Managed to Put on Makeup and You Can't Even Tell
Size of baby: little over 1", or about the size of a kumquat/ball of cotton.
Fun fact: Fingernails, toenails, and hair are developing.
Size of mother: 4-5lbs lost. (Let's all be on the same page about one thing. How long I will continue to post my weight is up for debate.)
What on the menu: Nothing interesting, that's for sure. This child looks down on almost everything I enjoy eating which is most disappointing. I was so looking forward to introducing it to food (my first great love), but it rejects almost everything. The child doesn't even like oreos! ARE WE EVEN RELATED? Sometimes I think we can't possible be when he/she has such a terrible attitude about fruit/meat/fried rice/vegetables/pizza/salad/olives/etc etc etc, but then I think about the fact that it's inside of me so... It does enjoy potato chips which proves it has at least some of my genes.
Gender: Girl! I'm still a girl!
Worst part of the week (and the preceding five weeks): Nauseous/sick 92% of the time.
Best part of the week: Tie between seeing Sesame wiggling on last week and getting anti-nausea medication.

Look at you with your fancy schmancy Pinterest worthy count down (or count up, hmm). Looking good! I'm so glad you got a wiggle and hope you'll be better soon. Otherwise, let me just tell you, being sick at Thanksgiving stink stank stunks!

You are so SKINNY. Eat! EAT. (Say it like that crazy aunt in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.)
