My Little Lemon!

We are 14 weeks today, only 5 weeks until our big ultrasound! This week baby G is about 3.5 inches long and weighs about 1.5 ounces! And, you guessed it, he/she is the size of a lemon! A lot is going on in the development of baby G, his/her liver and kidneys started functioning this week, producing bile and urine (exciting, I know)! Also happening this week is the growth of baby hair, probably red and curly! If we had an ultrasound this week we would also get to see that our baby is able to make lots of different facial expressions, he/she is also able to suck it's thumb!

In mommy news, I am completely over morning sickness (knock on wood)! I have felt good this entire week and have gotten a lot of my energy back. That is not to say that I'm staying up past 9pm, but during the day at least I have energy! I should start showing any day now. The 9 pounds that I've gained so far are really only visible to me, but every day I can tell more and more that there is a baby inside me!

I got my first ever mother's day card in the mail yesterday. It was so precious to think that already I am preparing to be someones mommy! I never could have imagined what this would feel like. God has truly blessed Tim and I, and we cannot wait to bring this little one home!

Your pregnancy is zooming by too! You are almost 15 weeks. WOW!

And isn't it fun getting Mother's Day cards? I wasn't expecting anything, but it was nice to get cards and flowers.
