12 weeks (August 28-September 3)

The most dramatic development this week: reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder.Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.

We went to have another ultrasound on Tuesday and for some 12 week testing. The baby is growing well but was stubborn for the ultrasound nurse. She had a hard time getting him/her to cooperate with what she needed! Hopefully this is not telling of how the baby will be outside the womb! lol!! :) It was neat to see a little bit of how he/she has grown but our ultrasound pics aren't as good this time. Anyway, I go back to the doctor again in 3 weeks!
