11 Weeks Prego- Belly Pics!

Our lil' fetus will be gaining a substantial amount of weight this week and has already achieved fruit-size-status comparable to a plum. What's more, our little scientist is already starting to explore their body, focusing most intently on touching their head, and especially their face and mouth.Their mouth in particular will provide them with hours of entertainment. This happens not only because our baby is gaining coordination, and is therefore able to move a hand on command, but also because their palms have gained sensation and can actually “feel...” what it touches.They're also developing their swallow reflex this week. And lastly, our baby's smelling and other olfactory senses will begin developing this week, which when combined with the maturing taste buds, will provide our baby with their first experiences of taste and smell.

This week I have been under an abnormal amount of stress at work but otherwise have been feeling a bit better- not quite as tired or nauseous I have been in the past. Nothing else has changed, I am still excited as ever- just can't wait until I can feel Baby K moving!
