Oh my gosh...THAT tiny thing is making me THIS sick?

Week Seven
Elbows form - Again, taking a peek inside you could see your baby's fascination with bending and flexing. Later you will swear you can enlist your child as the star of the next "Karate Kid" movie!
Fingers start to develop - These digits often become your baby's first toy!
Feet start to appear with tiny notches for the toes - It is fascinating that at less than a half inch, your little guy (or gal) already is leaving "footprints" on your heart!
Ears eyes and nose start to appear - Although they may resemble an alien life form, these all "shift" soon enough into a more normal appearance.
Intestines start to form in the umbilical cord - Did you know that initially the intestines are not formed inside your baby's body?
Teeth begin to develop under the gums - Thankfully, right now you won't be dealing with teething pain!

Hey! I prayed for you this morning, I'm guessing Brent is leaving today or tomorrow. By the way, maybe it's 2 of those making you sick. :-) Don't you love me right now for even saying that?

Ha, ha, ha. Has anyone ever been that mean to YOU? I hope so. I'd really go crazy with two. And I think my body might never recover!

Of course people have been that mean! "You're HUGE. Are you sure you aren't having twins? You're sure you're only 6 months along. But you're HUGE!" The entire last 3 months of my pregnancy with Seth. Oh, and the very best ever - "I know you're having a boy. Because you have hair above your upper lip." OH MY. (It really wasn't hair, but not much better. Skin discoloration above my upper lip, thanks to Seth's pregnancy.) So, yep, aren't people great? Including me? :-) I was really hoping to just make you laugh!

sometimes people congratulate ME on the little one, and I'm a guy.

(I think they're teasing, though. And it used to happen more, back when I had a little paunch, instead of the hot bod I'm rocking these days.)

OMG Melissa, I had no idea you were pregnant! That's so awesome! Congratulations. Sorry I've been living in my own little vortex of drama and not come checking on you.
Great great news!
