Week 11

No belly picture this week... It looks the same as ever. So... until there are noticeable changes, we'll likely shoot for every other week.

This week, baby is about the size of a lime! And there is about a 1:1 ratio between the size of baby's head and the rest of baby's body!

Supposedly, this is about what baby looks like right now (it is so hard to write these things using non-gender-specific pronouns!... No "her" or "his" or "she" or anything... only "baby". haha)

Baby's fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and they're growing hair follicles, tooth buds, and starting some fingernails!

Baby's ears have moved to their permanent position... I'm going to have to do some more research to figure out exactly where they were before...

Baby is busy kicking and stretching (I can't feel it yet) and soon will be able to open and close little hands into fists!

Baby's diaphragm is forming, and baby is likely hiccuping to strengthen it! Baby's kidneys can function now and are cycling amniotic fluid.
