Back on track now- according to thebump.com itty bitty is the size of a lime! (weighing in at only the equivalent to 7 paper clips- according to one of my books). We went from a prune to a lime in a week! (Maybe that isn't that big of a difference, but since I have never been up close and personal with a prune, I think it is.)
Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.
On the babyzone due date club, we posted predictions on the baby size and hair etc. I have already declared itty bitty probably will be born with little to no hair. It's ok because that means I won't have a lot of heartburn.
Here are my guesses:
Weight at birth: 7lbs 4oz (I just picked a random number)
Height at birth: 18.5'' (again, random number)
Pain med: I'd like to say no epidural- we will see.
Hair or no hair: not much if any
Tomorrow I have my 2nd doctor's appointment. The one where they drain me of all the blood I have and expect me to not fall out of my chair. Then give me a flu shot. THIS should be a real good time... After that I will post my 12 week update- with a picture hopefully.
