This week the baby is the size of a peach, 3 inches long and weighs nearly an ounce. (And extremely active by the looks of the sonogram) He/she is forming teeth and vocal cords. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy. Fingerprints have formed on baby's tiny fingertips, his/her veins and organs are clearly visible through the still-thin skin. If baby E is a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries.
Oh yeah, baby's heart rate was 152 yesterday!
Next week is the beginning of the second trimester!!!!! YAY!!! I'm slowly working my way into some maternity clothes. They are still a little big but all of my pre-preg pants that still fit are all black...I can't wear black pants everyday people!
