11 Weeks

Right now, our baby is just over an inch and a half long, about the size of a fig and is almost fully formed! It can open and close it's tiny hands now, and many of the bones are beginning to harden. Little toothbuds are also beginning to form beneath the gums. And though I can't quite feel it's baby aerobics yet, it's starting its "water ballet" classes now and will become very active over the next few weeks....even hiccuping as it's diaphragm forms! I think it is so cool how intricately this little guy or girl is designed and can't wait to hear it's heartbeat at our next appointment near the end of October.

On my end of things, I'm happy to report that I'm feeling great! I've been blessed to dodge the morning sickness thus far, and hav'net been experiencing anything too unpleasant aside from some monstrous headaches here and there. I'm hoping my energy, strong stomach and high metabolism continue to be close friends from this point onward! Only 29 weeks and counting :)

I am enjoying reading at what stage this baby should be doing in the womb and how big the baby would be and how the baby are forming.

What a wonderful Pro-Life message that is!
