My Pregnancy Brain: Its really starting to hit me that in 8-12 weeks we're going to have a baby! Holy Crap!!!!!! I need to get working on the baby's room.
Dr Visits: Had one this week, nothing special the usual again except now they get to see me every other week rather than once a month.
What the baby looks like this week: She is about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in my uterus. Is starting to get a little crowded in there, but still has room to wiggle and roll and punch and kick.
Big news for baby's brain this week: It's starting to to form Gyri and Sulci! This is due to the rapid growth of her little genius's brain cells. Other highlights this week: Fingernails and toenails are finally finished, Plus, the bone marrow is completely in charge of red-blood-cell production now.
