18 Weeks!

Another week with no posts in between! We are just hanging out and doing the school thing these days.  We drove down to see Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens this past weekend.  I had to take two pills that day, but for the most part I am only needing 1 a day now and feeling good most of the time.  Here is all about the sweet potato this week:

Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long, and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

Just two more weeks until the big ultrasound and the reveal party.  We have a lot to keep us busy so it will go by quickly!
