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.

Hiccupping!! That is so cute, especially since you can't feel it yet!
I love these updates.
Did you know that today is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday? We watched a beautiful video about babies today at church - our God is so amazing!
Enjoy every minute.
