How are you feeling?
Mood: pretty good
Morning Sickness: none yet :)

Notes (Feb 2): No school because of snow (2nd day)! Picked up the house some but mainly laid around. Karl cooked fajita tacos and we played scrabble. I won (with his help) He had wine while I drank my H2o in a wine glass :) -- I thought we took a picture of this but I can not find it to save my life haha it was too funny though :)
Your baby in Week 5:
Your baby now resembles a teeny tadpole (complete with a tiny tail) and is about the size of an orange seed. The circulatory (or blood) system, along with the heart, is the first part of that tiny body to be functional; and as your baby's heart starts to form, you may even be able to see it beating on an early ultrasound. Another part of your little tadpole that is under construction: the neural tube, which will eventually become your baby's brain and spinal cord.
Your body in Week 5:
Your body's had all the early pregnancy signs — the missed period, nausea, tender breasts, and fatigue. And now you've got proof as your pee works its magic on that test strip — yup, you're officially preggers! This news will probably elicit a combo platter of emotions ranging from sheer joy to sheer terror as the reality that you're going to be a mom sets in. Mood swings are totally normal (kind of like PMS on overdrive) and you'd better get used to them since they'll be hanging around for the next nine months or so.
