14 weeks!

May 25, 2005
Iím 14 weeks pregnant today!

Pretty cool, eh? Iím so glad Iíve made it this far. Iím just hoping that I keep doing as well as I have.

I usually do a little email to ďthe grandparents PLURALĒ on Wednesday mornings (there are 6 of them, ya know?) so theyíll know whatís going on. Oh yeah and Chad too.

Your Baby's Development This Week

Age of Fetusó12 weeks

By this week most of the major structures are formed in the baby and they continue to grow for the remainder of your pregnancy. The baby begins practicing inhaling and exhaling, sending amniotic fluid in and out of the lungs. This is believed to be an important part of proper formation of the air sacs.

Other changes that are happening:

The baby is beginning to use its thumb in opposition to other fingers.

The baby's spleen will start to work with the liver to remove old red blood cells and to create antibodies.

The baby's muscles in the cheeks are strengthening with sucking motions and salivary glands are beginning to function.

Baby's Size (head to rump) this week: About 3.5 to 4 inches.

Weight : About 1 ounce

Right now your baby is about the size of your computer mouse or small fist.

Can you believe my baby is the size of a computer mouse? WOW!?! I keep looking down at my computer mouse and thinking Ė thatís in there. Itís in there.

Anycrap Ė

In other news Ė my Mom will be in town today! Hurrah! This is the first time sheís seen me all knocked up and everything (much to her relief, Iím sure.) We have a family reunion this weekend in Shreveport which should be a lot of fun.

ALTHOUGH Chad may not be able to go because of his stupid job. (God we totally appreciate that he has a good job, please donít take it away AMEN)

He may have to ďbe aroundĒ just in case a server explodes in New Orleans or something. Heís spent our last 2 Saturday nights in New Orleans working on servers Ė not getting in until 2:00 am.

Alls I can say is that Iím NOT driving four hours by myself. No way. I do hope it works out.

Well Ė thatís about all for today. Iím torn on who Iíd like to see win tonight on AI. I guess my vote is with Bo, although Carrieís a really good singer. She seems to care more if she wins or not.

We shall see. . .
