Peanut at 7 Weeks


Our little Peanut is about the size of a blueberry this week (9 mm crown to rump). Her facial features are becoming more prominent; if we were to look at her up close, we'd be able to see a mouth, the beginnings of a tongue, and teeth. Her eyes are continuing to form and have a retina and a lens attached. She is now beginning to produce her own blood type. Even though I can't feel her yet, she is squirming around, moving her little webbed hands and feet around, getting to know her surroundings. By now, her intestines and appendix are formed and her liver is working to produce red blood cells.
As for me, I'm feeling just fine. Most days, I don't even feel pregnant! My pants are definitely fitting tighter though.
We're headed to Delaware tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving with Chris's family. I can't wait to share the news with them!

Hey Amy, restrain yourself with all the sex talk. My dad could read this. Hope you enjoyed the chocolate donuts...the ones in 2 rows of three, not in a line.
