week 21!!! major baby developments this week: the digestive system is put to work. The baby probably has begun swallowing amniotic fluid and absorbing small amounts of sugar from it. sugars pass through his developed digestive system, giving these organs important practice. The amniotic fluid changes day to day based on what you eat. because the baby is swallowing fluid he gets a "taste" of what you're eating.
week 20!! we were on vacation for our 1 year anniversary, so thats why the background looks different. this weeks major baby developments: the brain really starts to flourish. the brain develops millions of motor neutrons, which are nerves that help muscles in the brain communicate. This means the baby can now make purposeful and involuntary movements such as sucking his thumb and moving his head .
week 12!! i thought this was the last week of my first trimester, but i guess week 13 really is the last week, hmm weird how they count that. anyway, i was feeling so good in this pic, it was taken in sacromento at my sister's place, idk why it wasnt a side shot, but the shirt makes my belly look a little bigger then it really was. that was an amazing weekend thanks to all the pool time with my sister and and awesome evening spent with my cousin (=
