Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
Well I guess we have to watch what we say now. Tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Oh God, I better stop yelling at my husband. My hormones have been crazy this week. Everything he does or says just pisses me off. I have also been exhausted. I thought that was supposed to get better? I think it is mostly I am up every hour going to the bathroom. My body must be preparing myself to be up with the baby every hour.
Here are a few belly pictures I took this morning. Wednesday I have an ultrasound and doctors appointment. I will post the ultrasound pictures.
I cant believe I am 4 months pregnant! I have only 24 more weeks to go!
