Coming to terms with ...

Assalam alaikum & Peace to all

Pregnancy!

I am 8 weeks now (mashallah) and in the middle of the most annoying
nauseated feeling I have ever experienced! Nobody tells you the reality
of being pregnant! I am not throwing up (which is good I guess) but I do
have this nauseated feeling almost for the whole day, comes and goes but
the time between it coming and going is quite short.
I have tried ginger ale, nope no help. Munched on soda crackers, nothing but
crumbs to sweep up now. Chamomile tea helps a bit but not entirely, at least the
tea has a calming effect on me! I've bought some candied ginger, so we'll see if
that does anything at all?

Here are some interesting tidbits about how the child is developing!

Congratulations -- your embryo is now called a fetus, which means "offspring". Your uterus expands to accommodate its new resident, which now measures approximately five-eights of an inch / 1.6 centimetres. Many changes take place this week -- the embryonic tail is gone, and all organs, muscles, and nerves are beginning to function. The hands now bend at the wrist, and the feet begin to lose their webbed appearance. Eyelids are beginning to cover the eyes.

oohoo! You've got one whole inch of baby inside of you! Your little embryo has finally reached the one-inch mark (30mm). And if it were possible to take a peek, you could actually see your tiny baby without a telescope! What’s more, your baby is finally starting to take on some very distinct human features. For starters, their little tail (really just the spinal cord) has disappeared completely. It’s nice to know your baby can no longer be mistaken for a sea creature! Additionally, both their toes and fingers are prominent with very little, if any, webbing. Upper and lower limbs all show recognizable joints (elbows and knees) and the lower limb bones are starting to ossify. But don’t expect your baby to resemble either parent quite yet. Right now, your baby’s head is disproportionately larger than the rest of their body--making up almost half of your little one’s height and weight!

I am truly fascinated and amazed at these facts and how the baby develops week
by week! As well I am so thankful to God that we are blessed. It is really now that
you see that we as human beings did not just 'evolve' but that there is a plan to
all this and a 'creator', all of this could not just be an accident.
Everything has its time
and place and function! Subhanallah only God can do this!

Well, that's it for now as I feel very tired but am at work, but thought I would
just check in a bit!

Yes I am very tired and sleepy and this nausea is really trying at times! It just does not 'go away' for the whole day. Inshallah it will get better!

I love your healthful blog...so many great ideas in there! Mashallah!

Inshallah the nausea will end and soon you'll be feeling those fun little kicks. Inshallah just eat what you feel like eating. The things I craved or the only ones Youssef liked, were the ones I didn't throw up. So listen to baby mom and take those pre-natal pills :) ha ha I know you are sweetie. Love you and thank you for sharing your journey with us.
