Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks.
Just got back from the beach and unfortunately, I have sun poisoning. Usually, I try to avoid going to the doctor, but I was in so much pain that I had to just give in and go. I guess I am as stubborn as my husband about sunscreen. Jayden, on the other hand, got a little pink but not burnt.
