19 weeks! - A Small Zucchini

19 weeks and still rolling! I will try to send out a
"bump" picture at 20 weeks so everyone can see how
I've grown! I am sad to say, though, that this will
probably be the last week my baby has a comparison to
a fruit or vegetable. I hope you all enjoyed them as
much as I did!

1.5 weeks until our baby reveals its gender!


Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and he measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the length of a small zucchini. His arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of his body now. His kidneys continue to make urine, and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. This is a crucial time for sensory development: Your baby's brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. If your baby is a girl, she has an astonishing six million eggs in her ovaries. They'll dwindle to fewer than two million by the time she's born. Permanent teeth buds are also forming behind the already formed milk teeth buds.
