Week 8

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

How far along? We know for sure 8 but as of yesterday’s ultrasound, the drs office had me at 8 weeks 5 days (so 6 days today if you do the math)

Total weight gain/loss: Still hanging in around +/-7lbs

How big is baby? The size of Raspberry.  Average size is .63 inches, .04 oz.  Those little arms and little legs are moving like crazy.  We saw that yesterday on the ultra sound.

  • You can’t feel it yet, but baby’s moving those arms and legs like crazy!
  • Baby’s fingers and toes are now only slightly webbed and tail (yup, baby has one) is gone.
  • Fun fact: Baby’s taste buds are now forming.

Butt Rub

I’ve told you that my husband is all about the spices.  Anywhere we go, we both look at them trying to find some we don’t have or want to try.  When we made our trip to Kentucky in 2010 (wow that was a long time ago) we stumbled across something called Bad Byron’s Butt Rub.  We bought some.  We’ve used it on all kinds of things from meats to vegetables to even stirring it into mac & cheese to jugge (sp??) it up.  OMG we fell in love.  And by the way, this isn’t a sponsored post, promise.  We paid for everything prior and in this post, we just love the stuff so much.

There was a website so hubby went on to order us some more.  You have NO idea how good it is sprinkled in Mac & cheese.  In fact Zebra Girl and Tbug loved it the other weekend when I did it for them.  Yup, that good.

So hubby went on line and ordered us this little gift basket.

It came with a Tshirt and you can see if you want to go onto their youtube video they have ways to cook with it as well.


Week 6

How far along? Looks like we’re at 6 weeks now.  The ER confirmed its between 5 & 6 weeks last Thursday night so that would make 6 & 7 weeks this week.

Total weight gain/loss: It has been up and down and up and down within the same 7 lbs so far….
