14 weeks pregnant with Grandbaby #6

Developments: : Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck it's thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, it's facial muscles are getting a workout as it's tiny features form one expression after another. it's kidneys are producing urine, which it's releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process it'll keep up until birth. it can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch it sucking it's thumb.
From head to bottom, the baby measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and weighs 1 1/2 ounces. the baby body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, it's arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of it's body. (it's legs still have some lengthening to do.) it's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and its spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel it's tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.
