12 Weeks...aka: 3 Months!!!

Today we had our 12 week nuchal transluecency sono to measure the development of the skin fold on the back of the neck and it was a perfect measurement! I also had genetic screening bloodwork done, but it will all be fine with the great nuchal tube measurement ;) The baby bounced up and down a little bit for us :o) It's time to start guessing gender, so I will put a gender poll up on here for you to vote ;)

Your baby's crown-to-rump length is almost 2.5 inches and she now weighs between 8 and 14 grams! In just three weeks, your baby's size has more than doubled and begins to look a lot more human. Even though you won't be able to feel your baby moving at this time, you can stimulate him and he will squint, open his mouth and move his fingers or toes. Your baby develops reflexes and the skin is very sensitive.

The brain is fully formed, and the child can feel pain. the baby may even suck his thumb. The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve fibers.

Reese is doing great! No new picts just yet. Her hair is starting to grown finally!! She is starting to get very inquisitive...always pointing at stuff wanting to know what it is. She loves playing with the dogs outside now that it is pretty these days. She is funny about the grass though. When she falls down she doesn't like to touch it so she will pick up her hands really quickly and kind of "wimper" until she stands back up.

We are very anxious to move!! Monday is the official day =)
