Week 4 (Fetal Age 2 weeks)
This week, we had the official confirmation - both an at home pregnancy test and an official blood test. This week, we also had a trip planned - my (belated) birthday getaway to the East Brother Light Station - a bed and breakfast on an island housing a working lighthouse in the San Francisco Bay, about 10 minutes offshore from Richmond. Because Morgan had booked this way in advance and requested the in-room champagne and chocolate package, our innkeepers out of necessity became the first people to know about our pregnancy (they kindly replaced the champagne with sparkling cider). And please, baby? I hope you continue to travel so well on water.
This week, the kid is about the size of a poppy seed and is busy growing the bits that will eventually become all its major organs. Grow, baby, grow!
