My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 13

on September 19, 2011

Hi Baby! 🙂 Mommy and Daddy have been very busy with wedding details, but that doesn’t mean that we have forgotten about you. Grandma has made you your first pair of booties! 🙂 (Will post the pictures soon) Also, we will be having our lab tests, ultrasound and second check-up with Dr. Tumbokon this week, so you are still pretty much the star of our lives. 😉

Anyhoo, you are turning approximately 18 weeks now, so here’s what says about you:

At 18 weeks! 🙂


Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He’s busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they’re still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he’s born. If you’re having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you’re having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

*Sigh* I hope our first ultrasound already tells us if you’re a boy or a girl, so we can call you by name already. Daddy and Mommy have names already, and some people we know are already calling you by name. 😛

We love you Baby! 🙂
