Our Baby This Week

 

 

10 weeks

 

Our baby's started growing tiny fingernails and toenails and can now kick and swallow pretty impressive for someone the size of a walnut. Within the next few weeks, our featherweight baby will more than double in size, from just over an inch to nearly 3 inches. Chris and I have our first prenatal visit this week so next time we should have more news.

Note that, for the purposes of this chart, babies are measured from the crown (or top) of the head to the rump (or bottom) until about 20 weeks. After that, they're measured from head to toe.
