Appleseeds

"Your embryo (looking kind of like a tadpole) is starting to form major organs (heart, kidney, liver, stomach) and systems (nervous, circulatory, digestive). Baby's presence in your uterus triggers production of hCG (the hormone detected by pregnancy tests)... which triggers production of other hormones like estrogen and progesterone... which trigger all those great symptoms you've probably been noticing!"

Well maybe you could name one of the boys "Johnny" as in Johnny Appleseed in honor of this milestone? :)
Hope the symptoms are bearable! I am imagining you are welcoming them!

Yay for appleseeds!! I just made apple pie yesterday, and saw tons of apppleseeds -- I can't wait for you to see yours at the u/s!

P.S. I L.O.V.E. SATC and will often substitute those episodes for chic flicks on my "wine and sushi and tears" evenings :)
