9 weeks today

And since I am so fascinated by the biology of all of this:

Baby is beginning to move, but you won’t be able to feel anything for some time.  Baby is growing nipples and hair follicles.  His pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and anus are all in place, ready to poop and pee a dozen times a day when he’s born. Your baby’s head is half the size of his body and his little chin is tucked into his chest. His tiny tail is beginning to shrink away, giving Junior a more human and less amphibious look.

Until now, all pre-babies look the same “down there.” This week, however, your baby will begin to develop either male or female genitalia.

At this stage, your developing fetus is 1-inch in length, about the size of a martini olive and weighs a mere 2 grams—a little less than a penny.

How cool is that?  Our little gummy bear turned into a martini olive!
We have another doctor apt Friday, so expect another picture next week 🙂
