We are now officially one third of the way done with Peanut's cook time in Momma Ryan's Easy Bake Belly! No more first trimester and all its
drawn-out morning sickness wonderful sunshine and rainbows. We're now all grows up and graduating into Semester Duo with a class picture:
Peanut now is 5.62cm long (about the size of a lime) and weighs about 0.5 ounces. The digestive system is headlining this week, as the stomach, liver, pancreas and intestines are taking on their final and functional shapes. Its nose and lips are also fully formed now. Peanut's heart rate is clocking in at 171 beats a minute too!
Peanut's muscular system has been continuing to grow and even moving now that its receiving signals from the brain: kicking, curling toes, making fists and stretching. And boy did Peanut show off during our ultrasound appointment!
Next ultrasound appointment should tell us whether little Peanut is wearing a tie or dress in its little home.
