"Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop." --babycenter.com
I haven't had my weekly photo update yet, so I thought I'd throw out some information/facts instead :) Seriously, check out babycenter.com and the awesome images and videos they share about babies--both in and out of womb! It is impressive.
The Big news for me & baby this week: I felt KB move! 4 times already, since first felt movement last Friday! It has been different fluttery, butterfly-ish feelings... SO Special!
On the downside, sleeping is just becoming pretty rough. I constantly find myself waking with aches and discomfort, only to see that it has been like 30-40 mins since the last time I checked the clock. Pretty much all night long :( But, I suppose it is helping prepare me for all the midnight feeding that will happen in just five months.
