how are you feeling? I'm still feeling great. I am in total shock that I've felt this good.
Development this week: Today starts week 14 of development. Beginning in the 2nd tirmester, fetuses start growing at different paces. Despite the differences in growth rates, all babies in utero follow the same developmental path. This week, that baby is having a straighter position as the neck is getting longer and the head more erect. On top of that cute little head, might be sprouting some hair. (hopefully curly!) Eyebrow hair is also filling in as is body hair, lanugo. This downy coating of hair is there to keep the baby warm for now, like a furry blanket. As baby fat accumulates later on, most of that hair will be shed. (According to What to Expect When You're Expecting)
