14 weeks!!!

Woo hoo!!
Not much to report today. I have a check-up with my OB tomorrow which I'm sure will go well, but I'll update you about it tomorrow.
Today I just wanted to say "yay!" for 14 weeks! Each week is a milestone and a step closer to my IPs getting to hold their precious baby. ♥
I get an email from Babycenter each week with an update on the baby's developments and this week's is pretty cool:
"The baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb. Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him -- a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb. In other news: The baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches -- about the size of a lemon -- and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces."

Isn't that weird about the baby peeing?! It's just floatin' around in there, I guess, lol!

Until tomorrow's update, I'll leave you with my 14 week belly pic. TTYL!

Sorry about gaying out but I LOVE the cuff detail. V. Jackie O.

I'm gonna have to second Kevin on that one! LOVE THE SHIRT! I wanna get one for my surrogate if we are lucky enough to get a BFP!! The pee just mixes with the amniotic fluid, yucky but true..
