Last night while driving home from dinner with some friends I had my husband stop in a random parking lot so that I could get sick.
I felt like a drunk girl leaving a bar...but alas, I am pregnant, not intoxicated.

It was yucky.

all kinds of shriveled up grapes

Justin hates raisins and I am not a fan of prunes - BUT we are both very excited about our little prune sized fetus this week :)

The Chinese Gender Predictor says we are having a boy...we'll see.

Our prune-sized-fetus' vital organs are beginning to function this week. If he/she in fact is a "he", he is also producing testosterone already! Also, arms and joints are now working. That means baby can begin perfecting dance moves to perform for mom and dad as soon as he/she exits the womb! She/he better have a good routine - we are not easily impressed ;)

I am feeling pretty good this week. Other than having a bit of a sinus-infected-head, I have energy and don't feel like puking. I am also feeling my "breasts" (boobs) getting bigger along with a nice little pooch forming expanding on my tummy. {I am insinuating there has always been a pooch :) }

The Villmers really love these things this week!
-Playing video games (Lego Batman and Left4Dead)
-Watching the rest of LOST (we are on season 6 - I have already seen it, but I love re-watching it and watching him find new things out about the crazy sci-fi world of "The Island")
-Night Light (we bought this devotional and we are really enjoying it. It is really short and simple, but good for us right now)
-Listening to music on our Zune (Justin bought me a Zune! How sweet.)

–noun, plural -tus·es. Embryology .
(used chiefly of viviparous mammals) the young of an animal in the womb or egg, especially in the later stages of development when the body structures are in the recognizable form of its kind, in humans after the end of the second month of gestation.

For some reason a few years ago, in the beach house, the word fetus became my favorite of all time. I think because it is such a weird word and makes people feel a little uncomfortable. Now I have one inhabiting my uterus! How fun.

Our embryo is officially a fetus and is the size of an olive or grape.

I am very irritable lately! People annoy me constantly and I cry about stupid things. We have this tea cup in our bathroom that holds Q-tips and I really love the colors and pattern on it. I was sitting on the sink yesterday and accidentally knocked it off the counter and it broke to pieces. I made a sad face and Justin said, "honey, please don't cry" and I proceeded to cry over the broken, BEAUTIFUL tea cup. Ha.

another dream

Last night I dreamt that I gave birth at 8 weeks (my current pregnant state). It was a boy. I was freaking out because we don't have a boy name picked out. The little boy I gave birth to looked just like Braden Rew (as in a 3 month old baby boy).
Quite impossible - all of this - I realize. Once again, my dreams are crazy.

pillow talk

Justin woke up from a bad dream at 5:30am today. He told me all about it and we just laid in bed for at least an hour chatting and cuddling. It was sweet bliss.
I love pillow talk.
And yes, that's what they call it these days ;)

I am currently in week 8 of pregnancy.

We just got back from the OB. We were able to hear our little raspberry's heartbeat! It was so fast compared to mine and so faint. But SO awesome.

LOVE him.

This morning my husband, studious as he is, woke up at 5:30am to study for a test. I did not work until 9am and asked him to wake me up at 7am. He let me sleep a few extra minutes and then woke me up sweetly, explaining the reason he was waking me up now is so that I can eat the hot breakfast that was on the table :)

Yes, it is true. I have the best husband of all time.

Also, I am going on a bike ride this afternoon! It has been too cold for too long and I am thankful for this beautiful weather - therefore, I will embrace it!

Tomorrow we have our first OB visit! Hopefully a successful ultrasound will accompany it.
