Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she’s practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you’re having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.

Best Moment of the Week: getting to see the same nursery that our baby Morgan will be in less than 5 months and registering for baby classes-cant wait!
Movement: she has definitely scared the mess out of her mom and dad this week in this area. I didnt feel her for over 24 hrs which is very very rare so I started panicking which wasnt the best thing Im sure. I went and got some sweet tea and sure enough it woke her right up. Ive come to the realization though if I stand a lot I dont feel her as much but if I sit my butt down for most of the day I feel her a lot more which is hard to do being a teacher. God has sure taught me to lean on him and trust in him during times that I need him most.
