Squooshy this week...

Here's what Squooshy is up to this week:

Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks.


  1. It's nice to know that now you are caring a baby not a tadpole. (the "tail") lol just kidding around! Baby ??? should be able to hear you in just a few short weeks :)

  2. Yay squooshy- you're now a grape :)

    I loved these updates during my pregnancies!! How's the nausea Katie??
