I feel bigger this week. A lot of people told me that I am really looking pregnant now. It makes me wonder what I've been thinking I looked like the past few months, ha ha. Not much else to share. Hopefully we will be picking up the carseat/stroller combo soon. That's really the only *need* we have. I'm excited about going to Babies R Us to look around, we haven't been at all this whole time!
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
