25 Weeks

Another week down.... :-) Thank goodness! The uncomfortableness is really starting to settle in. And the heat isn't helping! I feel like the swelling is starting already. :-( I am trying to stay indoors and keep cool as much as possible. No belly picture this week, but hopefully I will have one next week. Happy Hump day everyone!!

All About Baby

Your baby-to-be's lungs are developing rapidly, although she'd probably need a little help breathing if she were born at this point. Her respiratory system continues to develop, her nostrils are open, and she can breathe—but she won't take her first breath of air until delivery day. Her reproductive organs are formed (in boys, the testes have descended). Her skin is translucent and wrinkled, and he can hear your stomach when it gurgles nd your voice when you sing. Your baby is becoming more aware of how she can move—she's wiggling her fingers and toes!

How Big Is Baby?

Your baby has grown to about one pound, eight ounces and she's nearly nine inches long (crown to rump).
