Well, here's the first picture of baby long! jk...But this is suppose to be what he/she looks like right now. I just calculated online how far along we are.... 6 week and 1 day! Further along than I though, which is good. :) And our estimated due date is December 30Th. Wouldn't it be cool if we had a new years baby ? :) Here a little more information about baby long:
Your Baby's Development
By week 6, your baby’s brain and nervous system are developing at a rapid pace. Optic vesicles, which later form the eyes, begin to develop this week on the sides of the head, as do the passageways that will make up the inner ear.
Your baby's heart will begin to beat around this time, and it may even be detected on ultrasound examination. And the beginnings of the digestive and respiratory systems are forming, too. Small buds that will grow into your baby's arms and legs also appear this week.
Because their legs are curled up against the torso for much of the pregnancy, making a full-length measurement difficult, babies often are measured from the crown to rump rather than from head to toe. This week, your baby only measures 0.08 to 0.2 inches (2 to 5 millimeters) from crown to rump!
Cool, so basically we have a tadpole right now!:)
It seems this is getting harder and harder to keep a secret.... I thought this would make it easier, but it doesn't. I'm dying to tell a real life person! Oh well, we will see how long this secret will stay a secret... our goal is to week 20!! So 13 weeks and 6 days to go.....
Man this is going to be tough.
