There was only one.../Il n'y en avait que un...

...but no heartbeat.

...mais pas de battements de cœur.

I believe...

I believe that if it has boobs, or wheels or computer chips, it will cause you problems.

And a computer is very much like a wife.
They're both supposed to help you, make your life easier and enjoyable.
But once in a while, they will make you miserable.

Your baby has a face! Your baby's features are becoming more predominant as his lips, tongue and nostrils, as well as the buds for 20 baby teeth are already present. The back muscles are growing along the spinal column, and his or her reproductive organs have started to form and soon will become either testes or ovaries. The arms and legs are growing while elbows and knees appear as well. The fingers and toes are starting to show but are still webbed. Your baby is about 8 - 11 mm or 0.31 - 0.43 inches in length.

The process of ossification (hardening of the bones) begins as the bones of the fingers and toes have already reached the first joint. Your baby is already getting smarter as his brain continues to develop and grow. Your baby starts to show signs of reflex activity - an automatic response to certain types of stimuli. Connecting you and your baby, the umbilical cord with all its blood vessels, are starting to function. In fact, what will be your baby's intestine is forming in the umbilical cord as well. An ultrasound done this week would show your baby's fluttering heart and reflex movements.

Some asshole in Buffalo

While driving in Buffalo, you didn't see the upside down red and white triangle alerting you that you did not have the right of way.
Also, I'm betting your rearview mirrors did not come with the instructions. And you must have been on your way to the doctor's office for your sore neck since you never turned your head to see if anybody was coming.

Luckily for you, I was paying attention and my brakes work. I smoked my trailer tires at 50 miles an hour so I would not end up in your back seat.

My slowing down 5 miles an hour for you to speed up and merge wasn't
quite enough and you decided to move in front (seemed like you wanted to move under) of my truck about 1/4 mile before the merge lane ended.

No harm no foul, right?
So here's a shitty picture of your shitty van, asshole.

This is day number 49

You're 7 weeks pregnant
Your baby's age since conception is 35 days / 5 weeks
There are 231 days until your due date! (82.5% to go)
49 days have passed

The baby has a tiny yet functional bloodstream and circulatory system. The heart is a large bulge in the front of the chest.

Went for a ride and found a little gem.

I went to my brother-in-law today, he lives in Vienna, Ontario, a mere 50 kilometers from my house.
But I rode 182 kms to get there.

On the way back from his house to mine, I made a little detour from the usual way and found this little gem:

Maybe 10 kms long but lots of curves and elevation changes. Something somewhat hard to find in South-Western Ontario, where roads are mostly flat and straight.

Rode 235 kms or 146 miles, used 11.5 Litres or 3.04 US gallons for 48 mpg.

Bonne Fete! Happy 3rd Birthday!
