Week Eight Update

3 Nov

Today our pregnancy is eight weeks along. Hurrah!

Matt and I are especially thrilled because reaching the eight-week mark means that our chance of miscarriage drops from 15% to 3%. It’s a nice (small) sigh of relief as we make our way through the first trimester.

Our babies are now the size of raspberries. They are 3/4 of an inch from the crown of their head to their rump (what they call CRL, or crown-to-rump length) and can now kick. All major organs, muscles and nerves are present.

Keeping our fingers crossed! Likely less than 200 days to go.
