I was about to get all real with this pregnancy thing

I had the post started and everything, but I don't know that I want to publicly out myself as an ungrateful jerk. Plus, the constant vomiting makes it tough to concentrate... as does a pissed off toddler.

So I'll just give a quick update instead: The baby's way bigger than I had in my head and I feel like shit. The end.

Not really.

Baby's now the size of a lime!

Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.
PLUS, as an added bonus, I'm pretty sure I have the same thing that I had with Athena.
Hyperemesis gravidarum
Hyperemesis gravidarum is extreme, persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that may lead to dehydration.
I guess it's not a typical pregnancy for me unless I wind up in the hospital for dehydration.
