Wanna see our kid's cute little face?

I'm pretty cute, don't you think? Do you want to know
what kind of person I am?
Keep scrolling down!

I'M A..........well, YOU decide!

Can you tell what I am? At the first ultrasound at Week 16 I was bashful, but this week I was tired of my parents calling me a girl so I showed off right away! Check me out and don't tell me after I come out that you saw my business.


We were just sure it was a girl, so we are working now to change our mindset to get ready for our little guy! PJ's already got a hunting outfit picked out for him!

Check me out at 17 weeks!

What's going on with the Baby? 17 weeks...

Your baby now measures at about 4½ inches long (11-12cm) and weighs about 3½ oz (100g) now. Baby is now the size of your hand spread open wide. Fat or adipose tissue begins to form beginning from this week and continues for some weeks to come; fat is important to the heat production and metabolism. Water makes up about 3 oz (89g) of your baby's body. If it is a girl baby, her fallopian tubes are formed around this time. If you have not felt your baby move, you will soon. These movements may not be felt everyday but as pregnancy progresses these movements grow stronger and more frequent.

What's Going on with the Baby? 15 weeks...

Your baby is about 4½ inches long and weighs just under 2 oz. Baby's skin is translucent and covered with downy hair called lanugo. While your baby is moving quite a bit you are not able to tell yet until a couple of weeks later. By this time your baby may be sucking its thumb. Eyes continue to move to the front of the face but are still widely spaced. Ears continue to develop externally. Bones that have already formed are hardening and ossifying (retaining calcium) rapidly. If an X-ray were done at this time, your baby's skeleton would be visible. Your baby looks more human with each passing day.
