Head to rump, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long and weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. (From a weekly update I get from Babycenter.com)
5 1/2 inches is getting pretty big. There is a reason for my belly (although it seems like I was this fat even when Baby was the size of a peanut). I'm starting to feel movements. Halfway is getting closer, and every day fear of miscarriage diminishes.
I've reached the size I can't hide it. And I'm okay with that. I make jokes about being fat, but I love my belly. It means I'm growing a life.
