We had our first ultrasound this week; the blueberry isn't particularly identifiable as a person, but we got to see (and hear!) the heartbeat. 144 beats per minute. Hearing it just blew me away; I knew we were growing a person, but to hear that strong, fast heartbeat was breathtaking.
This week, the baby is about the size of a blueberry, and has little paddles where its arms and legs will be. Its brain has two hemispheres, and its appendix is complete. Wonder why a completely useless organ is one of the first to form?
Our little rock star also had its second concert experience today; She & Him at Bimbo's. If the kid loves retro indie pop, its because it takes after both its parents.
