Baby Girl was rather uncooperative. Apparently she loves burying her face in her hands or in the wall of my uterus. She is also very low - her head is by my right hip bone so they had a hard time getting good shots of her face. We got to watch her for about 45 minutes while they tried to get her to move. My favorite was watching her little mouth and lips move. She even stuck her tongue out at one point. Below are a few of our favorite still photos and a short video clip.
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
