7 Weeks

So we are 7 weeks pregnant this week - it is crazy how time flies and stands still all at the same time. I wish I could fast forward until we have this baby here and know he/she is ok. it seems like April is FOREVER away. On the other hand it seems like we JUST found out we are pregnant and yet it has been 2 weeks already. I hope time flies and the baby continues to thrive and grow.

"The big news this week: Hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs — although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities you're daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry."


  1. Ahhh...little blueberry. Maybe that should be his/her in-utero name.

    And to answer your question--my ultrasound pic was from a little over 8 weeks.

    I'm loving the blog! It will be so fun to follow along with you on this nutty journey!

  2. LOL. I know the blueberry comment got me and the funny thing was that was what I was eating when I read the 7 weeks update from What to Expect. So funny. Thanks for reading. I have been reading Pokoldi & Electric Bugaloo's too. BTW - LOVE the new baby's name. :)
