How your baby’s growing:

My Baby this Week

Your baby’s growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he’s almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he’ll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing “branches” of the respiratory “tree” as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.


I’ve been doing pretty alright lately. Morning sickness is completely gone, now I’ve just got heartburn, backache, and swelling feet to deal with. I’ll take all of that over vomiting several times a day. 🙂 I can also suddenly feel him moving all the time now. This past week Shane put his hand on my stomach and felt a kick from the outside for the first time! It was pretty special.

    OMG, that’s the sweetest! I congratulate you & your husband fully! I’m guessing that’s him at the top right corner of your page, please correct me if I’m wrong. I’m religious, so I’m gonna say I pray & bless for you, your husband & your most beautiful gift developing inside you~

    Thanks Eva! And yep, that’s him at the top. As a matter of fact, he’s the youth pastor of our church, and I’m a Christian as well, so we appreciate all prayers<3

    Sigh– I loved feeling my babies move inside of me. What an exciting time for you. 🙂

Hey, I'm Lisa. I'm a twenty-year-old radiology student, and a part time cashier at a flea market. I'm married to the greatest guy ever; his name is Shane. We're expecting a baby boy on May 23rd, 2010, and frantically preparing for his arrival. I love shopping, dancing, making jewelry, playing the clarinet, the color green, and spending time with my hubby.
