Life Is Just So Daily

9 weeks...2 days.

Here's what I read on about my baby:

"Your new resident is nearly an inch long — barely the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce, but he's poised for rapid weight gain now that his basic physical structure is in place. He's also starting to look more and more human. His embryonic "tail" is now completely gone and his body parts — including organs, muscles, and nerves — are kicking into gear.

His eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. He has earlobes, and by week's end, the inner workings of his ears will be complete. His upper lip is fully formed, too, and his mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The tips of his fingers are slightly enlarged where his touch pads are developing. All major joints — his shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles — are working, enabling your baby to move his limbs. As for his heart, it has divided into four chambers now, and the valves have started to develop. External sex organs are there, but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks."


Movie Reviews...

"Surviving Christmas" with Ben Affleck. Loved it. Thought it was sooo funny.

"Vanity Fair" with Reese Witherspoon. Very slow start...but picked up for sure. I still havent finished it though. I intend to finish it today after work!

"Troy"...didnt see it. We rented it, but I told Damon to watch it without me. I have no interest in seeing it at all.

What else??? Got some cute clothes that fit me last night @ Ross. I just cant see spending a fortune right now! And, Jessica (My mom's new neice) sent me some of her maternity clothes. Most of them are still too big for me...but it looks like I can wear a few right now. She sent these two Liz Lange dresses that are sooooo comfortable. I wore one to work yesterday!

This weekend is Mark's bachelor party & Jana's bach'ette party.

Erin had another miscarriage. I feel so bad for her. She had a sonogram after some spotting....her baby only measured to be around 6 weeks in development & was "grossly malformed". She was at 13 weeks this time. I swear it has something to do with the power towers that are right next to her house. When you pull up to her house, you open the car door & you can feel the electricity in the air. You can hear it in the air. I could be crazy--but I seriously think it has something to do with it! it's microwaving her baby or something.
(Scientists laugh all you want at my theory---I'm sure electricity & micro-waves are different...but there's something to this whole power tower thing...I'm telling you--there's something to it!) anyway--I just feel bad for her. So, in her world--it used to be that she was PG, I am PG, her sister in law is PG, and Monty's ex-wife (her husband's ex-wife) is PG. (Why does her husband's ex-wife have anything to do with it?? Well, Monty has a little girl from that marriage, and so Erin sees the ex routinely when they pick up & drop off Gentry, and it's an amicable relationship...etc.) The point is--she's surrounded by PG people, and now she's not PG anymore.... :(

What I had for breakfast: a biscuit with gravy & 4 pieces of bacon. YUUUM! ...but, I'm still hungry.

My skin is soooo freaking dry. I cant seem to drink enough water to stay hydrated. Gatorade has become my new best friend.

I dont know much else.
I'm feeling pregnant today.
