God's creation is an amazing thing. These are pictures from here of a baby at 7 weeks in the womb. Today I am 7 weeks 3 days pregnant with baby #3, and he/she looks very much like this.
We are excited about this sweet blessing, which we expect around January 19, 2010. I have been extremely tired, and have very strong food aversions this time around. My first appointment with my midwife won't be until I am 10 weeks along.
And just because I love to read about the week-to-week development, here is what we expect to be going on with our little bambino this week:
- Elbows form
- Fingers start to develop
- Feet start to appear with tiny notches for the toes
- Ears eyes and nose start to appear
- Intestines start to form in the umbilical cord - Did you know that initially the intestines are not formed insideof the baby's body?
- Teeth begin to develop under the gums
