The dude/dudette is growing what feels like faster now – I can tell by the tightness of my pants. It’s almost time for new pants. NO YET but almost.
The legs are growing longer than the arms now, and it can move all of it’s joints and limbs. Although the eyelids are still fussed shut, they can sense light (how wild is that??). There’s not much for the baby to taste at this point, but taste buds are forming. Rumor has it, ultra sounds can sometimes tell you if it’s a boy or girl this early. We are waiting until 20 weeks BUT it’s crazy to realize it’s already a boy or girl. I originally wanted it to be a surprise but now I am getting quit anxious to find out!
