This week baby girl is the size of...

Apparently my uterus is now the size of a soccer ball, and inside that ball is my baby girl who is now about the size of an eggplant. She's 9 inches long and weighs about a pound and a half. Her capillaries are forming under the skin and are filling with blood, and the blood vessels have developed in her lungs. Her nostrils are also opening up and she is starting to take practice breaths - getting ready for her first big breath in less than 16 weeks. I am so amazed at how quickly she is growing and how soon she will be in our arms.
