Week Twelve

The big development for Baby Perri this week is that of reflexes. S/he is able to open and close fingers and making sucking motions that will allow thumb sucking in the near future. The food size comparison is that of a lime, which in the spirit of Easter just gone by, I put near a plastic egg for size comparison.

Additionally his or her intestines are now moving into the abdominal cavity and the kidneys will start excreting urine.

This is one of the points at which some people share they are pregnant as I did with Matt’s extended family yesterday.

44 year old mother to be, delightedly expecting our first baby with my husband, Matt,. We live with our mischievous cat, Inky. Estimated Due Date - October 27, 2017, though doctor plans to do a C-Section earlier. I love sports (Go Giants! Go Sharks!), photography, the beach, WWE, reading and now looking at our ultrasound pics. Our baby is upside down in our 8 week one I'm using as an icon, almost like s/he is mooning us, ;).
