Friday Foetus Blogging, Week 13: Where Does The Time Go?

Yeah, so without a computer for a couple of weeks, we missed 12. Anyway, here's 13:
Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.
That medium shrimp sure moves around a lot in there:
Big Brother helps find Number Two's elusive heartbeat.

The adventure continues...

Friday Foetus Blogging, Week 11: The Figo For Thee!

Our first Friday Foetus blogging!
Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden. She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.
As for Mommy:
If you're like most women, you're feeling a bit more energetic now and your nausea may be starting to wane.
Mmm...not really. Number Two is being significantly more difficult than Sam was at this point, and first trimester can't end soon enough. A figo for the little fig!

What an angel, right?

Wish I were that flexible.
