Closing in on 8 weeks

I am currently 7 weeks and a few days pregnant. I thought I would give you a glimpse of our growing baby. This is an 8 week gestation baby.

Can you believe the changes! That's just almost recognizable. My first appointment is Wednesday so I will be able to post actual sonogram images. I've always been an avid reader of pregnancy books but the internet is so much better. You can find so much information (sometimes too much which leads to worry). I love researching images and finding out what's going on in there.

8 Weeks Gestation
All essential organs have begun to form.
Elbows and toes are visible.
The fingers have grown to the first joint.
Facial features — the eyes, nose, lips, and tongue — continue to develop.
The outer ears begin to take shape.
Organs begin to be controlled by the brain.
The length is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.
