Week 5:

According to Junior is:

The heart will begin to beat this week! It's amazing how much is happening so quickly. A transvaginal ultrasound will show about 90% of the yolk sacs. It is now possible to differentiate between the head and the tail of the baby now. By the end of the week that folic acid will be paying off as the neural folds begin to fuse. Your baby is now an embryo! Average length is 1.5 - 2.5 mm

It's amazing how fast the little guy is progressing. I'm just getting use to the idea of a second child, and Junior is already an embryo!

It's been a roller coaster kind of a week for us going from, this can't be real, take another test, best two out of three, best four out of five.... Followed by why, why, why did I do this? (The this in question is getting my wife pregnant, it is not to be taken any other way-just covering my butt, pregnancy, hormones and stuff.)Then one to maybe it was a defective test, or four defective tests. From there it was off to we're screwed, I'm not going to be able to afford this, and finally this is going to happen, we can do this.

All this happened with in the first couple of minutes. And for the past week and a half I have hopscotched from one emotion to the next and back again.
