To all of our faithful readers

Please keep us in prayer as we go for our 10 week appt on Thursday. I have been quite anxious about it b/c this is the appt where the Dr. will listen for the heartbeat. I have been told that most parents to be do not hear the heartbeat this early and some end up getting ultrasounds b/c of this. After all we have been through, it worries me to think of not hearing the heartbeat. I do feel, however, that God is delivering me from this fear and I am beginning to think positively and am getting excited. Please keep us and Baby H in your prayers this week and of course we will update you on Thursday!

I'm so excited for you that you heard the heartbeat!!!

Week Ten

* Baby is now called a fetus in "medical terms". You, however, may have chosen the name "peanut," "angel," "jumping bean" or simply "miracle."
* The most critical part of your infant's development is complete. Now you are headed into a period of rapid growth.
* While a bit strange to envision, your baby's head is now about half its length - Soon the rest of the body's growth will catch up but this area is prepared to keep up with the rapid brain development!
* Eyelids fuse shut and irises begin to develop - Eye color is also determined by this point.
* Placenta begins to function this week or next - The placenta is the organ responsible for both the provision of nutrients along with the removal of waste to keep your baby growing strong!
* Your baby will be about 1.22 inch long (3.1cm) and weigh 0.14 ounce (4gm) at the end of this week
