Ultrasound #3- 8 Weeks!

Well, we have officially graduated from HIVF (with honors), as baby is looking very good.  He/ she measures 7 weeks 5 days, and has a healthy heartbeat of 170.

It actually looks like a baby!  It was moving around like crazy and it's little heart could clearly be seen pumping!  

Development-wise:  Baby's looking a lot less reptilian than before, it no longer has a tail, but hands and feet are still a little webbed.  It's the size of a large raspberry, and has been growing a millimeter every day.  Taste buds formed this week, along with eyelids, nose, and upper lip.  Kidneys, liver, and stomach have begun to take shape, and the aortic and pulmonary valves are present, giving its heart two chambers.

As part of my Fall decorating: here we are with our little pumpkin!
