Sweet Pea to Blueberry

Well, I am currently 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant - still extremely early in my pregnancy, but I feel as if I've already been through so many changes.  From week 6 to week 7 the baby graduates from a sweet pea to a blueberry.  I am still having trouble understanding how the heck we heard our baby's heart beat when he/she was the size of a sweat pea - amazing!
