Baby News

I get a weekly e-mail about how the baby is growing at this stage in the game. Here are some of the stats from this week's e-mail. At 11 inches, (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but the irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside, you'd be able to spot the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until she adds a padding of fat to fill them in.


  1. I love getting online and seeing what my baby is starting to look like! I had an image on my desktop, but it didnt' look like a baby, more like a tadpole. My son was getting grossed out, so I had to get rid of it!! When are you due again?

  2. That is so neat. I have a book that gives the day to day changes in the baby. I love looking at it every day!
