Our Embryo Graduated!

I'm 10 weeks along today, and according to my pregnancy books, that means that our little embryo has officially graduated to a fetus! The picture above is a fairly good representation of the approximate size and shape of Little Hittle is at this point. It should be measuring a little over 1" from crown to rump, and should be weighing somewhere in the neighborhood of .04-.11 ounces (1-3 grams). To put that in perspective, that means that our baby can still easily be held inside a tablespooon! Little Hittle's individual fingers and toes should be visible now and its limbs should be capable of purposeful movement. It's just amazing to think about what is possible at such a small scale... we have our very own nano-baby!
