It's hard to believe we are half way there - another 20 weeks to go and we get to meet our baby girl! We had a busy week filled with registering, meeting with a pediatrician, and maybe a little bit of shopping for some dresses and pink of course! All is well with the pregnancy - we've been blessed. Her movements are becoming more and more pronounced and easier to feel from the outside. Here is what she's up to this week:
Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a cantaloupe. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she's measured from head to toe.) She's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system.
