a few days ago i learned from a friend that an embryo’s heart starts beating at three weeks. though i’m not sure exactly (or scientifically) what happens from conception day up to day 21, i imagine that it’s a little like the intermission of the great 80′s game pacman, when they meet, and the two parts of the possibly-soon-to-be whole decide to merge. this newly merged entity then shimmies up to the uterine wall, attaches, with the wall forms the umbilical cord, and then, with a sigh, flips the switch to “on” and starts beating its heart.

my conclusion today, then, is that you actually can be half pregnant, for a short time.

  1. And, just so we can both feel good about being on the same page?bumps on the face ARE pregnancy related. Stupid hormones do that. I get face bumps on a regular basis, and it stinks! But, what is a pregnant girl to do?


  2. I tend to agree with your post. I’ve had difficulty finding any worthwhile information on this subject. Thanks for your thourough and informitive post.
