Head to bottom, Inchworm is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and weighs almost 7 ounces. Bell peppers are pretty big!
- The baby is busy flexing arms and legs — which I am noticing more and more.
- Blood vessels are visible through the thin skin.
- The ears are now in position and stand out from the head.
- Myelin (a protective covering) is beginning to form around the nerves, a process that will continue for a year after the baby is born.
- If we're having a girl, her uterus and Fallopian tubes are formed and in place.
- If our baby is a boy, his genitals are noticeable, though he may hide them from you during an ultrasound. We will find out in a week!?
I haven't been the slightest sick or nauseous in the past few weeks....hoping that is over with completely. No feet or hands swelling. Oh, and I have gained a whopping 4lbs.
