Week 11: Being Able to Stay Awake is Heaven
Our little one is the size of a lime. Reminds me of margaritas...
We're chugging right along. Big D has been making me smoothies and all is right with the world. I plan on telling the bossman soon because I'd really like to get my post-partum plan ready. KnowwhatImean?
I've got my NT Scan next week. Its a first trimester Down Syndrome test that many mothers have done. And many don't. Its a controversial test because some parents opt for termination if the test shows a high risk. I know more people who opted out of the test than people who actually took it. I'm in the latter category. I definitely want to know.
What baby is up to...
Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through. But, fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.
