6 Weeks

I can't believe I'm already 6 weeks! Here's what PregnancyWeekly has to say about it:

Your baby's heart is dividing into chambers and will start beating in a more regular rhythm. Your little embryo is about 0.08 to 0.16 inches from crown to rump (about the size of a BB pellet) and looks more tadpole than human. But it undergoes a tremendous growth spurt this week: Its major organs - including the kidneys and liver - begin to grow; the neural tube, which connects the brain and spinal cord, will close this week; and your embryo's upper and lower limb buds begin to sprout, which will form the arms and legs. The intestines are also developing and the appendix is in place; and its facial features are starting to form, the nostrils are becoming distinct, and the retinas of the eyes are forming.

And, for anyone who watched the olympics, here's the best cartoon I've ever seen:

Happy 6 week milestone!!

The widget on the side of the page gets really freaky looking now! It stays looking a bit alien like until around week 9 or 10. Then after that it starts floating around upside down..too funny our little beans...
