I feel good! (But I might get sick tomorrow morning!) My morning sickness has been very off and on but mostly off so that's good. I feel much bigger this week and I'm getting more and more energy to keep up with Isaiah. Of course, all this sunshine and wandering outside with him is helping. I'm still hungry all the time and anxious about finding out the sex. My dreams are getting weirder and weirder. I had a dream I was having twins. The first was a boy and the second was a girl. Then I had two dreams in a row it was a girl. But for the most part I feel like it's a boy. Not that I would care either way. I just want a healthy little one and I cannot wait to meet him/her!
Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
