The First Milestone

Well, actually its a second milestone (First month went by without me realizing it). Today I finished exactly 8 weeks (2 months) since the time I conceived. Feels unreal that so much time has gone by since the time we came to know I am Preg.

I am not sure what all the parents usually do at this time period. I am (almost) feeling guilty that I didn't buy anything for our baby yet! Considering I am a shopping freak when it comes to kids cloths/toys etc, I myself am surprised that I didn't buy anything.
Well, that's not completely true. Last night I did attempt to buy a little brown teddy bear but (as rightly pointed out by my hubby) it had a crocked eye and when you look at it, it looks at the ceiling instead of at you! So, we didn't buy it :)

But I guess 8 weeks is a little too early to start spending on baby-things. But can there be anything like "too-early" or "too-late" when it comes to shopping?

I also take this opportunity to mention a few fun facts about our baby at 8 weeks. Did you know that this "baby" I keep referring to is actually called a fetus at this stage? It has just graduated from being called an embryo. But for now, let me keep referring to this as baby, as fetus and embryo sound a bit too clinical for my taste.

Baby now measures five-eights of an inch and is approximately the size of one small raspberry. Here it is:

But don't worry, I have not hidden anything from anyone yet. We are not carrying triplets :)
Below is how it looks like In Utero.

The embryonic tail is gone, and all organs, muscles, and nerves are beginning to function. The hands now bend at the wrist, and the feet begin to lose their webbed appearance. Eyelids are beginning to cover the eyes.

Amazing isn't it?
