Well, well, I get what I wish for. Man, oh man, I am not feeling well. During week 4 and week 5, I know a few of you were asking me how I was feeling and my response was always "I wish I was feeling something. I just feel so normal". I think I even started to worry that maybe I wasn’t really pregnant. Well, about an hour after getting the results from my bloodwork work on Thursday, I noticed a major change. I noticed that all the sweet smells around me started making my stomach turn sour. Hearing people talk about what they were going to have for lunch would make my mouth water and my tongue feel fat. Needless to say, I have been having some of the mean & ugly nausea ever since. I wake up... feel sick. Get to work… feel sick. Leave work... feel sick. Go to bed... feel sick. The rocket scientist that decided to term this feeling as ‘morning sickness’ must have miscalculated a few hours from the duration of time that a woman feels sick during the day.
That is my update for today. I am happy that I feel pregnant but a little sad that I can’t eat.
The picture above explains a little of how I am feeling... I feel green.

The update I have this evening is about 'baby'. I thought that it would be interesting to share a few details about what has happened over the 5th week.
Week 5 Development:
The baby's jaw, cheeks, chin, eyes, ears, and nose are beginning to form what will eventually become one adorable face. In addition, the kidneys, liver, and lungs are developing, and the heart is now beating 80 times a minute (and getting faster every day). All this and it's still no bigger than the length of a nail head (about a quarter of an inch) from crown to rump!
I promise to post again soon... but that is what I have for tonight.

Today marks the start of week 5. We have our first ultrasound scheduled for 2 weeks from today, so be sure to check back for the update from that.
Also, each Thursday until the baby is born, we will be posting "baby bump" pictures, so be sure to keep and eye out for those.
