Belly Shot:

What the baby looks like this week: Weighs about 1 1/2 pounds and is 13 1/2 inches long. Is growing more hair, with a distinctive color and texture and everything. My uterus the size of a soccer ball . My fundal measurements have grown about an inch-and-a-half in the past four weeks alone. He's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. His hands are now fully developed and he spends most of his awake time groping around in the darkness of my uterus. Brain and nerve endings are developed enough now so that he can feel the sensation of touch. Also his nostrils, which have been plugged up until now, have cleared out and he can practice breathing through the nose. The structures of his spine are now made up of 150 joints, 33 rings and some 1,000 ligaments. The capillaries, the teeniest blood vessels, are now forming in his body, giving his formerly translucent skin a pink glow. The blood vessels in the lungs also develop this week.
