Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.
We're very excited to be pregnant and hoping for a healthy and happy 9 months. I started out fine and then the morning sickness began not too long after finding out we were pregnant. We've had some concerns along the way regarding the morning sickness as well as bleeding, but everything looks good so far.
Here is the baby at 6 weeks on 8/18/08. We had an early ultrasound since I've had an ectopic pregnancy before. They needed to make sure this one wasn't in my only fallopian tube.
We probably won't have another ultrasound until around 18-20 weeks. We plan to find out at that ultrasound if we're having a boy or a girl. We already have a girl's name picked out, but are at a complete loss when it comes to boy names. All I am really concerned with at this point is making it to the second trimester without any more problems.
