4 Months Along

We are 16 weeks today!  Though the time seems to generally be measured in weeks; comparing that 16 weeks to 4 months sure gives some perspective on how far into this pregnancy we are.  We are almost halfway. 

Here is a little bit on what baby is up to this week:

  • baby baum is nearly five inches in length (which is roughly the size of an avocado or large pear) and weighs over three ounces
  • Eyebrows, eyelashes and hair are starting to fill in
  • Taste buds are forming
  • Developed facial muscles make it possible for him/her to squint, frown, or try to make other expressions
  • His/her eyes can move from side-to-side, and even perceive some light, although its eyes are still fused shut
  • He/she might be experiencing tiny hiccups though they are too small for me to feel yet
Here is my growing baby bump:

The countdown continues...

Two weeks until my husband graduates from grad school.

Two weeks until we have our ultrasound.

Three weeks until we close on our house.

And then after that I think everything will run together!  :)

Hope everyone has a happy Friday.  Don't forget your umbrella!
