11 weeks...(taken from

Your little one is roughly the size of a thumb this week, but he can swallow and kick, and his fingernails have started to grow. His head is so big it takes up almost half the length of his body, and a clear outline of his spine is visible. If you have an appointment with your doctor or midwife this week, she'll be able to pick up the speedy swoosh of a heartbeat with the help of a special stethoscope called a Doppler. Experts say hearing a heartbeat at this point is a major sign that the pregnancy is progressing as it should.

By the way we will get to hear the heart beat on March 21st!  I can't wait!

yeah!!! How exciting to get to hear the heartbeat. I wonder if when it gets bigger if you can feel it's heartbeat? that would be weird but cool i'm sure:)
