10 WEEKS


15 JUN: Father's Day! The first Father's Day for my honey! We got together with our friends Christy, Randy, Cille, Carlos and the whole Carlos clan--Jessica, E.J. and Christian. We went to have lunch at Bubba Gumps! We had such a wonderful time!! The food was great and I ate so much shrimp I thought it would start coming out of my ears!!!
Our babies at 10 WKS:
*Baby is now called a fetus in "medical terms".
*The most critical part of our their development is complete.
*Their heads are now about half its length - Soon the rest of the body's growth will catch up but this area is prepared to keep up with the rapid brain development!
*Eyelids fuse shut and irises begin to develop - Eye color is also determined by this point.
*Placenta begins to function this week or next - The placenta is the organ responsible for both the provision of nutrients along with the removal of waste to keep your baby growing strong!
The babies are about 1.22 inch long (3.1cm) and weigh 0.14 ounce at the end of this week.
