12 Weeks!

Less then 200 days to go at this point! Yikes!

12 Week Belly Pic

According to Babycenter:
The most dramatic development this week: Reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder.

Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. His face looks unquestionably human: His eyes have moved from the sides to the front of his head, and his ears are right where they should be. From crown to rump, your baby-to-be is just over two inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
So, the weekly fruit pic:


Ha! Ok, kidding! That was one of the first pictures that came up when I Googled "lime" and it made me laugh pretty good! ;-)

Now, an actual lime, in case you live in a cave:
