By the end of the week Sprout will be the size of a peach!
Here's what Sprout is doing this week: The head is now about half the size of her crown-to-rump length
(that’s one reason why your little peach looks more like an alien from outer
space at this point). By the time you give birth, the body will catch up,
measuring three-quarters of her total size. Bones are beginning to form in her arms and legs, the intestines are beginning
to move from the umbilical cord to the abdomen, and the vocal cords are well
under construction . The baby can move its arms and legs in a jerky fashion,so it may be able to
get the thumb into the mouth.
Sprout also got his (her?) first present yesterday! A co-worker named Misty left me a the present on my desk as a surprise.
