7 weeks today:-) I think Thursday is going to become my favorite day of the week. I don't look ahead to the next week (b/c I am superstitious), so it's fun to see what the week brings.

Baby's brain -- both hemispheres! -- is growing fast, generating about 100 new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby's third!) is now in place.
I've been having a horrible time sleeping. I'm exhausted after work, but when I try to wind down to go to bed, I can't sleep. It's horrible. I can feel my heart racing. All I want is a good nights sleep and I can't get it.
I've been feeling nauseus in the evening, but today is the first day that it's hit me mid-morning. Horrible, icky, flu-like stomach churning. Yuck. But, it's reassuring. After all, we paid top $$$ for me to feel like crap, so bring it on:-)
Oh, and our 2nd (and final, hopefully) u/s with Dr. K is April 27. If all looks and sounds good...she'll release me to my regular doctor. I'm not ready to be a normal pregnant person who only gets an u/s at 20 weeks. I am so low-maintainance in every other aspect of my life, but not this. I hope my doctor can handle me!

Won't they do a u/s at 10-12 weeks for the NT test? How would they get a visual on the nasal bone and the nuchal folds without it? I feel like all my friends in NY all had that, and not even just the geriatrics (you know, 35 and up). Either way, it'll be okay. Relax and enjoy the finest nausea money can buy. ;)

I hope you can start to sleep better. But take it from me, it won't necessarily mean you won't be tired any more! :)

I'm not ready to be a "normal" pregnant person either...but I figure it's better than a NON pregnant person any day! You should go to my OB, he has my same type A personality and totally gets my freak outs. Let me know if you want his #.

Oh, and email me about lunch, we'll figure something out before m/s really kicks in!!!
