Remember, it's heart month, so I thought I'd add some trivia for the world to contemplate.

The x axis is weeks (of gestation), the y axis is heart rate. The rest of the answer can be found here.

I thought this was interesting because of the remarkably linear relationship of the heart rate to gestational age in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Happy heart month! :)
