what's cooking? [new baby things]: babe is about 11 inches long, about the length of a squash or bag of oreos and weighs almost a pound. she has eyebrows, eyelashes and maybe some hair [if she's not a baldy]. if she does have hair it's white. they don't get their hair or eye pigment just yet. from here on out she's just supposed to be working on beefin' up. i love that. i especially love it since the ultrasound techs keep giving me pictures of your creepy skeleton face. it's not your fault...you just need some cheeks already! baby can sense what she touches now, so she's feeling all around - so fun.
gender: little bitty girl!
movement: still moving as much as ever. i'm getting more daytime movements than ever before, she's normally such a night owl / early am shaker. there have been a few more times where i can feel her moving in two places at once. for the first time this week i felt her doing sweeping movements instead of just quick jabs. and now i know when you're hiccuping i think, little lady!
momma developments: my belly button is facing straight upward. it fills up just like a pool in the shower. and my button is getting a little more shallow. it started out so deep i never thought i'd have an outtie but we'll see how it turns out. my belly is as hard as a rock, feels like steel. i have had a few bouts with forgetfulness and with irritability. hoping to keep my head for the next few months.
