Lime, anyone?

Woo hoo! Our sweet baby is now the size of a lime. :) One of my favorite websites, The Bump, compares the baby each week of pregnancy to the size of a food. It makes comparisons so much easier for us! My how we've grown since our days as a poppy seed (week 3). Here is what the site says about this week of development:

Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.

Exciting, huh? :) We go to the doctor tomorrow for our monthly check-up, so we're pumped! Please pray that sweet baby Jackson is still healthy and that all is well for Mommy, too. I should have a new "lime-sized" pic to share tomorrow!
