Seventeen Weeks :)

Tomorrow I will be seventeen weeks! I wont be able to get on the internet so I am doing it today instead! Baby Bean is the size of an Onion. Here is whats going on with Baby Bean this week:

Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.

Sorry its been so long!

We moved into the new house with my grandma and we don't have internet! So doing the blog gets a little hard! I am doing my best though!
We may end up moving again, this time to Tennessee. It all depends on tonight. Why when we have only been there for two weeks? Bill, my grandma's husband. My grandma wanted me to stay with him to make sure he didn't fall and if he did (or had a heart attack) that I could call 911. His doctors have told him he cannot be alone for that reason. Well when we moved in she told me that I am to basically treat him like a child and do EVERYTHING for him and ignore whatever he says. Well that is not gonna happen. Especially when he hits my dogs with a cane and yells at my brother for eating. I am not a maid or a nurse. I am not going to pretend like its ok for me to do that and let him think its ok because when that baby gets here he is going to expect me to do EVERYTHING for him along with the baby, or just ignore the baby's needs. Anyway, we are having a family meeting tonight and we'll see how it goes.
On the bright side we will hopefully find out what the baby is on the 26 of this month! :) We are so excited! Hopefully I'll be able to get on here a little more! I really miss blogging!

Sixteen Weeks :)

I was sixteen weeks on July 6. Baby Bean was the size of an Avocado. Here is what happened that week:

Watch what you say...tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean she can now pick up your voice. A few more minuscule changes: Eyebrows, lashes, and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming.
Average size 4{point}6 in, 3{point}5 oz.

Fifteen Weeks :)

I was fifteen weeks on June 29. Baby Bean was the size of a Naval Orange. Here is what went on that week:
Continuing the march toward normal proportions, baby's legs now out-measure his arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably can't feel the movements just yet.
Average size 4{point}0 in, 2{point}five oz.

Fourteen Weeks :)

I was fourteen weeks on June 22. Baby Bean was the size of a lemon! :) Here is what went on with Baby Bean that week: 

Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine, and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.
