13 weeks

Yesterday I officially entered my second trimester, I am excited as far as I have read this will be best time, morning sickness and extreme tiredness should go away. well my little one has a lot going on already it has become an individual, it has it own set of finger prints, the baby's intestines are migrating from the umbilical cord into his or her abdomen. The liver begins to secrete bile and the pancreas is even secreting insulin! All twenty teeth have formed and are waiting under the gums, our baby has begun to practice swallowing by taking in the surrounding amniotic fluid and pass it back in it's urine. Your baby can smile and it's vocal cords are quickly developing! Most of the vital systems are developed now, and baby starts really growing, at times, growing as much as an inch. (explains why I am so hungry all the time) currently our little peanut is almost 3 inches long and weighs about a half a ounce. If you ever want to watch some cool/weird things you should go to youtube and watch ultrasound videos, crazy that thing is doing it in my body now (crazy!)
