I think I say this every week, but the weeks are flying by, and the bump is getting bigger by the day- it all makes it so much more real! The baby is the size of a papaya, and here is the progress on what’s new with the baby-
“Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance, And now that she’s more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby’s increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze her when she hears them outside the womb.”
This week we went to the doctor, and everything looks good! the heartbeat is 140 bpm, and I’m still feeling pretty good… can’t complain!
We painted the baby’s room this weekend, so the background for the pictures is new! Here are pictures from this week (I feel like Matt hasn’t been in many pictures lately but he wanted to stay behind the camera again this week!):
