12 Weeks....28 To Go!!

So here we are at 12 weeks...the 1st trimester is coming to an end, and I can totally tell a difference in the way I feel!  Here is the update for the week along with belly pics :)  I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and takes the time to thank God who gives us everything we have!!!

This is me with Joey at 12 weeks.  So glad I don't have braces this time around!!

And here I am with Stout Seed # 2 at 12 weeks :)  Where did that hip bone go from the picture above??  HMMMM?!?

And on with the Update...

How your baby's growing (12 Weeks):

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.
