..big changes this week..

For me, I hit the big 2-8 today. Not a classic "milestone" birthday, but maybe because of being preggo, it feels kind of important to me :) The actual big changes are all baby's. This being my first pregnancy, I'm following all of the stages of development, and I'm just in awe of how much growth there can be in such a short amount of time. I'm 7 weeks today, and the little one is about the size of a blueberry (I like that!) :) By the end of this week, it will double in length from 4-5mm to 11-13mm. What is really tripping me out is blueberry's little hands and feet. Here's about what they look like today:

And by the end of the week, the hand will look like this:

Pretty crazy huh? My pants are getting tighter, the nausea is still there (ugh), and just the thought of some foods makes me want to run to the bathroom. But, it's all part of the experience, right? :)
