OMG 7 weeks! Just 22 more days till our next appointment, I need to call in my refill of progesterone as I am on my last weeks worth so when I go in for my appointment I will pick it up. Things are just moving right along now. I actually got sick this morning. Not a lot but I was still making an offering to the porcelain god, and I am feeling better now. I should probably go find something to eat.
-Your embryo is growing bigger and bigger with each passing day.
-This week, tiny hands and feet are beginning to develop and emerge from their tiny arm and leg buds.
-By next week the “tail” protruding from your embryo should all but disappear and will start to look more like a baby than a sea creature.
-Eyelids are partially covering your embryos developing eyes, his/her nose is beginning to sprout and you could see the tip of it.
-Both hemispheres of the brain are growing, veins are developing beneath translucent parchment-paper thin skin.
-Your little embryos liver as working over time right now producing red blood cells, until the bone marrow forms and takes over that job.
