11 weeks!

Happy 11 weeks to us! Things are still going so well. I feel like it has been so long since we have been to the dr now! I have more blood work on the 25th and then the dr appointment a couple days later. I’m feeling great. I have had a few stretching ligament pains. If you don’t know what that is. It basically feels like someone has taken a knife to your belly and is just stabbing and twisting it! I’m so excited for when I really start getting a big belly so I look pregnant! Baby B is a great little friend, I’m so very happy that I haven’t had any crazy pregnancy headaches.

Let’s see what baby B has been doing!!!

Slightly more than one-and-a-half inches long now and weighing about a quarter of an ounce, your baby has been pretty busy growing this week. While you can’t tell this baby’s gender by its cover yet, ovaries are developing if it’s a girl. And by week 11 of pregnancy, baby has distinct human characteristics: hands and feet in front of her body, ears nearly in their final shape, open nasal passages on the tip of her tiny nose, a tongue and palate in the mouth and visible nipples. Hair follicles are forming on the crown (as well as over the rest of the body). What else makes your baby look human? Those hands and feet have individual fingers and toes (meaning goodbye to those frog-like webbed hands and feet). Meanwhile, fingernail and toenail beds begin to develop this week; in the next few weeks, the nails themselves will start to grow (so don’t forget to add a baby nail clipper to your to-buy list).

At the same time, your baby’s body is straightening and her torso is lengthening (sounds like a yoga pose, doesn’t it?). Other poses your baby can assume now: stretches, somersaults and forward rolls.
