It's a bird, it's a plane, No wait, it's an...
ORANGE! YEA! 15 weeks!
Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now outmeasure the arms (oh i'm feeling ballerina or basketball player!). And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Babylove is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though i haven't felt the movements.
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. 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 (oh this could be REALLY fun!). 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 (Uh yea Chris won't fork over the money for us to do this... he's making me wait until July 14... BOO!)
what does this little wonder look like you might wonder?
now that position can't be comfortable... doesn't he/she look like a little dream baby just floating around in there? lol Pondering the questions of the universe. LOL!
