Week 13

We went to the doctors yesterday and our due date was moved to April Fool's Day (from 4/3). We also had another ultrasound done (I will post pictures soon for all to see).

Everything is going well. We are researching hospitals and alternative birthing options to determine which is best for us.

About the size of a peach, your baby's body starts to catch up to the head. Eyes, which start out on the side of the face, move toward the center and the ears move toward the side of the head.

Size: 2.6 to 3.1 inches Weight: .5-.7 ounces

Week 11

Our baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long, is now almost fully formed. The hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under the gums, and some of the bones are beginning to harden. It's already busy kicking and stretching, and the tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as the body grows and becomes more developed and functional. I won't feel our baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that the diaphragm is forming.


Now seeing the lime, I want a Corona, but I will resist.
