Pregnancy - Week Eight

It's hard to imagine that you are even pregnant. You haven't gained much weight usually, and other than lots of negative pregnancy symptoms, you're probably feeling like you've been invaded by an alien rather than be happily pregnant. On the other hand, your baby is rapidly growing and making amazing changes, even at this early stage of pregnancy. Your baby still has a bit of a tail, but to make you feel better, stare at the toe rays instead.
