One Little Bean

If I've counted the days right...
Your baby weighs about 1 1/2 ounces now and is about three to four inches long-about as wide as your fist.
Your baby's face continues to look more human, with individual characteristics becoming more pronounced all the time. Teeth have formed in your baby's gums. Your baby's skin is very thin. If you took a photo, you would be able to see her developing blood vessels. Hair is growing on her head and eyebrows and may even have pigment in it if she has the genes for dark hair.
Her bone marrow has begun to produce blood cells, a chore previously performed by the yolk sac. Your baby rarely sits still. She's often wiggling fingers and toes; stretching, yawning, and hiccuping. However, you probably won't be able to feel the movements for another month or so.
