Week 13: Shrimp

I guess doesn't only use fruit and veggie comparisons for the baby growth. Baby #2 is the size of a medium shrimp this week, or so they say. All I know is my belly keeps getting bigger. And shrimp is thankfully one of the many things I can fathom eating again these days. Very few foods are off-limits anymore. A welcome change! And I'm in the last week of my first trimester, so my comfort level should only continue to improve in the coming months... before the weight, hormones and everything else totally wallops me again in the third trimester. Here's the news for this week:

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

  1. I still vividly remember the day I found out that "Biscuit" had fingerprints. For some reason, I was completely weirded out by it.
