9 Weeks!

Woo-wee!!  This week is a biggie!

  • Babies are about an inch long!  They are about the size of a grape. 
  • No longer embryos, the babies are now fetuses.  (I still call 'em babies!)  :) 
  • The heart will finish dividing into 4 chambers and the valves start to form.
  • Tiny teeth are forming (OMG!)
  • The organs, muscles and nerves are kicking into gear.
  • The babies are flexing their joints since muscles are developing.
  • Tiny earlobes are taking shape.
  • Now that the basic physiology is in place, the babies are poised for rapid weight gain. (Does this mean me too?  Lol!)

Here's a cool video showing the incredible things the babies have done this last week, and what they will be doing in the next couple weeks!  Amazing!
