Fruit Baby

So, our baby is between the size of a lime and a plum this week... Hard to believe. He's already got unwebbed tiny fingers and toes, and hair follicles, tooth buds and even nail beds! Heart, digestion, pancreas, spine, nerves, liver, lungs, brain... all there, wow! Her intestines just have to move into her abdominal cavity instead of her umbilical cord now. And her skin needs to get less see-through-y. Mommy's about to start gaining an average of 1 lb a week, so they say!

Well hello Miss Christina! And, CONGRATULATIONS on your little "fruit baby". It's truly been ages since I've seen or spoken with you. Thanks so much for posting a comment on my blog. I didn't catch your current location (city, state), but I definitely hope that you find the best care for your and your little one. Please keep in touch! And, do send pictures. Also, you can always email me at and update me on your life after SHS. My story is definitely an interesting one! Take care! :)
