the creepy "your child is the size of this fruit" pictures! I say creepy because how weird is it to compare you child to the size of something that people also use as a reference for their boobs and some male anatomy.
BUT regardless, we will proceed and show you what Babylove 2.0 is today!

An OLIVE! Whamp whamp. Yeah i'm not so excited about this one since well, Olives are gross! But check out these details!
Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. (they have a graduation for EVERYTHING these days, preschool, kindergarten, elementary school, MIDDLE school... come on people where's the specialness in THAT?) Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. (That's IF i could get a flipping appointment, but NOOO i have to wait until NEXT friday when i'll be TEN weeks along. Gezzz!) With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like...well...a baby! (Yea no more tadpole/gummy bear! I can make humans!)
Here's what it has to say about me, HA:

As you squeeze into your jeans and struggle to button your shirt, try enjoying the gain -- after all, when was the last time putting on the pounds was totally guilt-free? (guilt free now even? riiiight)It's also probably time for some new lingerie. (and this is supposed to make me excited?)Your sore, bigger-by-the-minute boobs will feel so much better in a maternity bra.

Lets check out another disturbing site shall we? For research purposes.

                                         (that's a grape, tastier then an olive!
Your new resident is nearly an inch long —                                                                  — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for (thank God! but it's all essential right?), 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 (oh the teeth, as exciting as that sounds, NO THANKS! Teething SUCKS!). 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 (unless he's like his... oh I'll stop). Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.

So that's the bean. We're 9 weeks! YEA!
