6 weeks, 0 days

12 Jun

So, we’re starting the 7th week! According to one source, my baby is the size of a sweet pea. According to another source – like a small bean, about half an inch. The discrepancy is due to the fact that one source measures head to rump, while the other, I guess, measures head to toes (or tail?)

The heart is beating now, the blood is circulating. I hope we do see the heartbeat in our u/s tomorrow noon!

The embryo already has hands and feet, thickly webbed – and it will start moving the limbs sometime this week! How cool is that! Yah, I know I won’t feel it until sometimes in the second trimester, but nevertheless… very cool!

And the baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, and chin.

Hmmm. I still haven’t started exercising. Booo.
