This week, your little one weighs in at almost 2 pounds and is almost 15 inches long. Eyelashes are also starting to grow at the ends of the lids, and someone will be taking a first peek around this week, as baby's eyelids flutter open for the first time. The eyelids won't stay open for too long yet, but the blinking reflex will begin. More good news: Your baby probably recognizes the voice behind all those lullabies now, and he/she is falling in love just as fast as you are.
Some sources say this week marks the beginning of the third trimester, others say next week does.
I'm doing fine. To be honest, I haven't had a lot of time to focus on being pregnant. Between planning for the move, planning for Avery's birthday, and finishing up the semester of school, I'm fairly consumed for the time being. I look forward to settling in our new house and getting everything ready for still-unnamed baby boy.
Speaking of, this weekend we should have plenty of time to nail down a name. Hopefully.
