5 Weeks Today!

Hard to believe that we are already 5 weeks pregnant!!

Here is what's going on in the womb this week:

  • The babies are about the size of a sesame seed.  Soooo tiny, yet crazy to think that just a week ago, they were the size of a grain of sand!
  • This week the heart begins to divide into chambers and beat and pump blood. 
  • The primitive placenta and umbilical cord are already busy delivering nourishment and oxygen to the babies.
  • Tiny buds will appear where arms and legs will develop.
Heartbeats and Arms and Legs, oh my!!!  Human development is an incredible thing!

We had our 3rd and final beta today and our numbers were:  7421!
Our first ultrasound is two weeks from today, on the 21st!!  Sounds like the guys are going to try to be here for that and I couldn't be more excited.  Not only am I excited to see them, because I miss them, but I can't wait for them to see those perfect little heartbeats!!

In other news, I will be in San Diego/Las Vegas this weekend to see Celine Dion!!  This is a trip that my mom and I have had planned for about a year and we are VERY excited about it!  We have tickets to see Le Reve on Friday night and Saturday night will be Celine!!!  It should be a fantastic weekend and also the last "trip" that I have on the books at this point!  I feel like I have been traveling, traveling, traveling lately!  Whew!!!

If I don't get a chance to post until I get back, I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Do something fun with someone fun...that's what I'm doing!  :)
