9 weeks

Baby Lambert is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape— and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. He/she is starting to look more and more human. His/her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few exciting!!!!

I've been feeling pretty good overall, excpet I'm tired pretty much all the time. Adam makes fun of my frequent naps (hehe). My nausea comes and goes. Hopefully it will stay gone!! I have been craving pasta, mexican (nothing new there), and fruit. I am hungry more often and get full faster. I DO NOT want a hamburger! I smelled them cooking as I rode down the road, and know...

Only 217 more days to go!!!

Our next appointment is August 12!
