Baby Progression & A Correction

As usual at the beginning of my pregnancies, I told you the wrong number of weeks along I am. Can I just blame the pregnancy brain and taking care of a home and family? Because I am...

I am actually 8 1/2 weeks along. I will be 9 weeks on Monday. My estimated due date of May 30th still stands. However, I know my babies like to bake extra long. Since that is the case I am not counting on giving birth before June 10th. We shall see. lol

According to, here is what our little one looks like.

These are the normal developments for week eight:

  • Cartilage and bones begin to form
  • The basic structure of the eye is well underway
  • The tongue begins to develop
  • Intestines move out of the umbilical cord into the abdomen
  • The fingers and toes have appeared, but are webbed and short
  • The baby is about the size of a kidney bean
