Ok so I'm going to play a little catch up right now since I've been MIA for a little bit and I'm going to catch up on my posts from baby Alec!!
Head to rump, I'm about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and I weigh almost 7 ounces. I'm busy flexing my arms and legs — movements that my mommy will start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. My blood vessels are visible through my thin skin, and my ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from my head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around my nerves, a process that will continue for a year after I'm born. My genitals are noticeable now, but I hide them from mommy and daddy during ultrasounds.
