    I had an early scan yesterday, and the woman who did it said, "they don't have arms and legs at this stage"

    And yet every ticker/web page says they have little webbed toes by this stage! Who's right? So confused...

    I think they have little plates at that stage, and the pinkies and tootsies are just forming at the ends

    My understanding is that they look like a gummy bear with short stubby nubs . . . in week 9-10 they lengthen and the fingers become more defined.

    I could be wrong. It's different for every baby too :)

    Hey Little Boo. I had my 8week scan yesterday as well. I think the best part for me was being able to listen to the heartbeat. I will try to post my scan pics tomorrow but the arms and legs do look like little stumps.
