18 weeks!

Today I am 18 weeks!  My baby is the size of a bell pepper!  Whoo hoo!

“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.  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.”
