11 weeks



Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.
She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

Congratulations! I actually made it up to see the hub off to work, go for a run, and Facebook. Now the little ones are starting to wake up and make noise. Just wanted to encourage you: Blessed are you with your number six! That was us 6 years ago. Now it's 8 and wondering each month if there's to be a 9. Every day is insane, but so good! Press on, sister :)
