Thursday Update and EcoUsable Winner

Congrats to Leela, comment #86, on winning our EcoUsable giveaway!

Update from The Fetus:
Only a few more days until Mommy has her next ultrasound! I know she's been listening to my heartbeat somewhat regularly, so she knows that I'm doing well in here. I also think she's beginning to feel me move. Not much, just little flutters because I'm so small still, but I've been trying to tickle her so she knows I'm ok. As for this week...
  • By the end of this week, I will be about 4.3 to 4.6 inches (10.8 to 11.6cm) from crown to rump and weigh about 2.8 ounces (80g).
  • I am covered by fine hair called lanugo.
  • My fingernails are well formed and my arms and legs may be seen moving on an ultrasound.
  • I already have my own unique fingerprint pattern!
  • I can hold my head erect, and I can also make faces with my slightly developed facial muscles.
  • My philtrum, the vertical groove on the surface of my upper lip, is forming.
  • I'm also making taste buds.
  • I may practice squinting, frowning and opening and closing my mouth.
  • My eyes are facing more forward on my face, and my ears are close to their final position.
  • Even though my eyelids are fused shut, my eyes are sensitive to light and I may move away from a flashlight shining on Mommy's tummy.
  • I have eyelashes now!
  • My bones have enough calcium deposits to show on an X-ray.
  • If I'm a girl, my ovaries are in place in my pelvis and more than five million ova are formed.
  • I'm breathing amniotic fluid, which is helping the air sacs in my lungs to develop.
  • My legs are growing longer than my arms now, and I can move all of my limbs.
  • I might be hiccuping now, but Mommy won't be able to feel it for a few more weeks.
