6 Weeks

Our appleseed is now the size of a sweet pea. Morning sickness has finally kicked in full force, although I'm misserable it's all worth it.

What's happening this week:
The arms and legs continue to develop
Brain is growing well
Lenses of the eyes appear
Nostrils are formed
Intestines grow - Initially these are actually located outside the baby's body within the umbilical cord.
Pancreas - The baby is now equipped to deal with digestive enzymes and take on processing the insulin and glucagons the body needs to function.

Oh Auntie Cassie, it's only 7 1/2 months left now. Hopefully it will fly by! He/She will be here before we know it.
