Hello, Sarah!The big news this week: Hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs — although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities you're daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry.

Taylor started throwing up about every 30min. up until around
midnight. Around 2am I woke up sick as a dog and started running to
the bathroom about every hour to throw up. This kept on until around
8am and then started back up again at noonish. We were so pitiful. I
did not get out of bed the whole day unless it was to go to the
bathroom. Britney was so sweet to run to the store and get us some
apple sauce and gatorade and leave it at our front door. We both
woke up this morning feeling fine. My lower back is a little achy but
that is about it! I am so glad we are done with this stomach bug. I
hope it never comes back.

staying busy so I don't have time to think too much about how long it
is going to be till Poppy Seed gets here. Taylor and I talk about it
every day! We still just can't believe it. Yesterday Britney and
Maddie drove to Cabot with me for a shoot. On the way back we were
talking about the baby. Maddie thinks that the baby will be a girl
and have a little bit of brown hair when it is born and she thinks for
sure it will have curly hair. I hope so! :) I think a curly headed
baby would be SO cute! I got an email from Alyson this morning and
she sent me a song that she said made her think of me. Her email says:
Sarah, I listened to this song today and thought about you...I think
it's a girl!
I hope you're doing well!
She and Maddie aren't the only one that thinks it will be a girl.
Jason is a strong believer that it will be a girl. He thinks since
Brit is more of a girlie girl and she had a boy and I am not so much a
girlie girl so I will have a girl. I was counting up last night.
Someone told me that we won't get to find out until 20 weeks. So that
make 14 weeks to go till we find out what the little nugget is :)
