This weekend I passed the 10 week mark, which means the baby graduated from embryo to fetus! Way to go, baby! I am starting to feel better and better, although my energy is next to nothing these days. This is probably more due to the 52 nine-year-olds with whom I've spent recent days, rather than solely being pregnant. If you're interested, here is what babycenter.com has to say about what is going on at 10 weeks:
"Though he or she's barely the size of a kumquat — just an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, he or she now has completed the most critical portion of his or her development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his or her body rapidly grow and mature. His or her vital organs — the liver, kidney, intestines, brain, and lungs — are now in place and starting to function (although they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy). Each day, more minute details — including tiny fingernails, toenails, and peach-fuzz hair — start to appear on his or her body. His or her fingers are now completely separated; the arms bend at the elbow and curve slightly; the hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over the heart; the legs are lengthening; and the feet may be long enough to meet in front of the body. He or she is busily swallowing amniotic fluid and kicking his or her legs." ****(They had "she" and "her" written throughout, but I just had to go in and add some "he" and "his"...)
Also, this weekend Kevan and I got to go to the Wilson County Fair, just outside of Nashville. It was one of the most fun things we have done in a while. I was giddy the entire evening. I loved every second. It reminded me a lot of the West Texas Fair, which was most likely the basis of its appeal. We enjoyed roasted corn on the cob, good barbecue and cream soda, chocolate and sprinkle covered strawberries on a stick, farm animals, camels, dancing Indians, a ferris wheel ride, and perhaps the highlight of the evening...the Wilson County Fair Clogging Competition. The 5 and Under (youngest) and 26 and Over (oldest) divisions were by far the most entertaining. We took some video, and if I can figure out how to get it on here, I will definitely share some of our favorite cloggers with you! For now, enjoy the pics...
