12 weeks!

So - the baby isn't really doing too much this week. Just maturing the organs s/he already has. :) He does start to DO some cool things this week though, so I'll highlight some of those.

  • The skeletal system is now forming bones!
  • Fingers and toes are completely separated.
  • Nails are forming!
  • Hair is appearing on the body.
  • External genitailia are beginning to show distinct signs of male or female sex characteristics.
  • The pituitary gland is making many different hormones.
  • Stimulating the baby in certain spots may cause him to squint, open his mouth, and move his fingers or toes.
  • S/he has doubled his length in the past 3 weeks. :) (See picture below)

This is the 11 week picture that I never put up.

12 weeks with shirt over pants.

12 weeks bare belly! Is it getting bigger? I know it's definitely getting harder! It feels very firm and tight.

Sorry it's flipped the wrong way. You get the general idea, I'm sure.

Since I didn't provide the picture last's the comparison from last week and this week!
