    I've had an ultrasound at 7 weeks.  The fetus doesn't really look like a bean.  You have a kind of tiny stick-like blob and a separate, larger round yolk sac.  A fetus at a slightly later date might look more bean-like, but Ryan was specific about it being 7 weeks. I guess tiny blobs on ambiguous black & white sonogram images are open to interpretation, but "bean" sounded wrong to me just from what he said about fetal age.
