(length of lime)
Size of baby: From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): The most dramatic development this week: reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder. Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! I bought a ton last weekend. I guess being short my belly pops sooner.
Stretch Marks: No.
Sleep: Not so great. Its mostly one bad dream after another.
Best Moment of the Week: Listening to my baby's heartbeat every morning and every night with my doppler! It's the most beautiful sound I've ever heard.
Movement: I thought I felt flutters but I read it's too soon.
Food cravings: The usual. Generally craving bad food. French fries. Pizza. Etc.
Gender: Not sure yet.
What I Miss: Not really a "what I miss" this week, but I just can't wait to have an obvious pregnant belly. Right now I am just in the in between stage where I'm sure most people just think I'm fat. lol
What I'm Looking Forward To: The 12w3d ultrasound (this Tuesday!) so I can see my baby again!!!
Milestones: I am in my second trimester Developmentally! Gestationally will be at 13.3 weeks.
Emotions: I snap a lot more now. Poor Mike.
Symptoms: Nauseous in the car in the mornings. Not major and barely noticeable. Sore boobs seem to be coming back in the evenings too.
