15 Weeks

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl!

PS- We keep meeting people who's "best friend/sister/cousin" just named their baby the SAME names that we have tentatively picked out!! grr...

PPS- Brian did 2 online Chinese Sex Predictions (which have been SWORN to work by many of his friends...right...) and they have BOTH said "girl". We shall see...

I will be SOOOO excited if it's a girl! I will be equally excited if it's a boy too though! But I'm sure eaither way you will be receiving some type of baby UT clothing from us! :)But it would be cute to put a giant burnt orange bow on it's little head! :)
