So my embryo is the size of a raspberry or a kidney bean. I’m unsure why most of the baby size charts compare it to food. Maybe because they are sexist and assume all women know about food? I have no idea.

I’m still super grateful to be pregnant but holy crap do I feel like shit. I am exhausted most of the time and I just daydream about being home in bed. I also have an upset stomach 70-80% of the day.

I’m hoping to pick it back up ( at least partially ) when I don’t feel so crappy.
