Today I’m 14 weeks! Yay! Now let’s see how Yoda is doing.
According to babygaga.com:
At about 3.5 inches long, your peach-sized baby’s little body and limber limbs are coordinated enough for loads of complicated motions.
In fact, it’s very likely that they’re in the middle of some fancy break-dance moves right now!
Unfortunately, you’re not going to feel their fancy moves until sometime after week 18 because they’re still too small to trigger sensations in your uterus. Their movements are recognizable on an ultrasound, though.
Speaking of which – you could schedule a gender ultrasound with your health care provider, if you’re interested in knowing whether you’re carrying a boy or a girl break-dancer. Or you can keep it a surprise till their birthday!
FYI: Weeks 16 – 18 are the first dates where the presence or lack of a penis and testicles can be clearly detected via ultrasound.
Your baby is also starting to develop the ability to move their eyes this week, although their eyelids remain fused shut for another three months.
Cute development of the week: their little hands can grasp at things and your wee babe can already suck their thumb!
And what size is Yoda this week?
Yoda is a lemon! Here’s another bonus picture I found:
Yoda would roughly look like that now. Kinda crazy if you think about it. A mini-human inside me!
