Stats: I’m 8 1/2 weeks pregnant – still due middle of May (today they said May 11) I’ll still go with May 13 because it’s my mom’s birthday … we saw the beating heart which measured at 167 bpm. Jessica was there and was interested for the first 2 minutes and then wanted to read books. 🙂 So nothing’s really changed – we’re not having twins.
I get a weekly email about the development of the baby – here’s what it says this week …
“Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby’s hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his “tail” is just about gone. His arms have lengthened, too, and his hands are now flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart. His knee joints have formed, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways.”
Can you believe it?? I just think that’s totally amazing.
