Week 7: The umbilical cord appears
Seven weeks into your pregnancy, your baby is 1/3 of an inch long — a little bigger than the top of a pencil eraser. He or she weighs less than an aspirin tablet.
The umbilical cord — the link between your baby and the placenta — is now clearly visible. The cavities and passages needed to circulate spinal fluid in your baby's brain have formed, but your baby's skull is still transparent.
The arm bud that sprouted last week now resembles a tiny paddle. Your baby's face takes on more definition this week, as a mouth perforation, tiny nostrils and ear indentations become visible.
Week 8: Baby's fingers and toes form
Eight weeks into your pregnancy, your baby is just over 1/2 of an inch long.
Your baby will develop webbed fingers and toes this week. Wrists, elbows and ankles are clearly visible, and your baby's eyelids are beginning to form. The ears, upper lip and tip of the nose also become recognizable.
As your baby's heart becomes more fully developed, it will pump at 150 beats a minute — about twice the usual adult rate.

I'm trying to get as much rest as I can. Being and feeling lazy become my new habit these days. Hard to focus on things or perhaps I shall call as my routine design job. Not to mention of my passion in photography, I seriously have to put it aside for a time being. It's too heavy for me to carry on the task while being pregnant. Trying to play safe here..
Anyway, these days I've been picking up a new obsession in my life. Or maybe I shall say a new hobby. Which is lighter and more relaxing. READING.
Ever since before I knew that I was pregnant, I've been a shopaholic in books. I've spend close to RM1K for book for last month. Suprisingly...I did! Obviously hubby thought that I was being ridiculously greedy of spending money within a month on that much of books. Frankly, I've never spent that much of money in my life just to buy books. I wasn't even really that patient before to sit down for hours and keep myself into books. When I bought all those book I even feel wierd myself of me feeling excited picking up one book to another. Thank God at this new place, I have ample of space to occupy my madness..
These is what I've picked up within a month.
I have the feelings there will be more coming. =P
Anyway, currently I'm glued to this book..

It's been a while now. It's mid of the year as usual weekend work has becoming our new routine. Everytime when I heard I'll be getting my weekend free, it would be my greatest pleasure of all.
Wanting to be at home.
Resting. Dreaming. Watching movies. Being lazy.
Is something that I've been longing for a longest time.
It is a whole new life now.
It was on the 31 days period cycle.
My tummy felt bloated. It's been a week plus has been feeling like that. Sleeping early becoming my new lifestyle.
Decided to have my pregnancy test early in the morning. While my brushing my teeth my small heart keeps whispering to me ..."It's ok Anis, if it's still doesn't work. It's ok...Just keep your spirit up. It's not the end of the world." After finished with my brushing I glanced on the bar next to me where I placed the pregnancy stick. Half expecting it's gonna be negative as usual. But...out of norm...IT'S POSITVE!!!!
I swear I can't believe my own eyes. I picked it up. And look at it again, again and again and again. To make sure what I saw is true. There's a very light line appear on the T area. Whoaaa...
I jumped straight to hubby to make sure what I'm seeing. Of course he was still sleeping and I forced him to open his eyes to confirm about it. Once he looked at it he seems stunt or perhaps kinda blur. And he asked me did I do the test accordingly. Of course I did!!
So clearly both of us saw the same thing. The second line is there. It's simply there!!
Before I left to work, he reminded me to stay low and not to mention about this to anyone. I understand why he asked me to do that anyway. Just afraid that it was an error.
With a mix feeling. I left to work. Late evening, one of our close fren msg me and congratulating me of the miracles. I was shocked of course, how could she knew about it?! Aghh...obviously I would be no one else except him, my hubby! And the funny things is, not only she knew abt it but everyone in his office!
Oh what a 'deal' from him.....

Yes, it is really POSITIVE. Thanks God for the blessing.

6 weeks and 3 days pregnant.
Went for my 1st pregnancy check-up. As the result of the scan, first time in my life I saw my baby...
Now I'm so excited to see my baby growing for time to time. Next will be in another two weeks time. I'm praying hard Junior will be growing perfectly. Love you baby!
