Growing up and Graduating!

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: Week 13 Ultrasound   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.

  1. oh boy, I hope Peanut wasn’t showing off the one ‘Ryan trait’ that leaves everyone gasping in the room. hahaha!

  2. I just keep hitting replay, replay, replay! Not gonna lie bro, I think you’re gonna have a lil daddy and momma’s girl! That heartbeat is way up there! And since us girls are overachievers by nature, I think she was showing off for daddy!
