that countdown ticker is totally grossing me out

I'm not quite sure why the little picture over there on the countdown is so alien-ish - I've done some research, and I've seen photos on the internet of a 5 week old embryo (we're actually 6 weeks now) and they don't look NEARLY that scary.

So I decided to post a better/less scary picture.. just to make myself feel better.

You should check out the book "A Child Is Born" by Lennart Nilsson and Lars Hamberger. I think it's about $20 and worth so much more! It is the most phenominal book regarding life inside the womb. They've used all kinds of crazy technology to get pics on the inside from day 1 to birth. Some of the book is a bit like an anatomy and physiology book so it's a bit graphic... Not a big deal since it's obvious you know where babies come from! :) I highly suggest it though... it's awesome to follow along week by week and provides a great idea of what's going on inside. Tons and tons of pics... it's wonderful!

You're right. The ticker totally looks like a baby Veloceraptor and the picture looks like an egg yolk with an eye. Yolk-y wins least creepy award.
