Seven Weeks

No bigger than a blueberry, our baby has a brain, spinal cord, and heart that is beating 158 times a minute.  It already has arms and legs and will soon begin developing fingers and toes.  It absoluetly amazes me that anyone who has ever experienced this can not be absolutely positive there is a God.  He is so amazing.  How incredible is it that He is not only sustaining the life within me but His hand is knitting every aspect of this child together.  We went in for an ultrasound two Thursdays ago and we got to see the heartbeat.  We went back last Thursday and within a week baby had grown three times the size it was from the week before!  I was astonished!  Here is a small (not very clear) clip of the ultrasound.  It's so much better in person! The doctors say that on the day of the most recent ultrasound baby is 7 weeks and 3 days old.
