A little baby fun

I want to share one of my most favorite sites for pregnant women.
It has so much good information and an awesome app that you get daily updates on.
You can also sign up for a weekly email that tells you how your baby is growing and developing.
It is so amazing how much they change every single week. 
Here's what it says about this week. 
Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although hereyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods."
Pretty awesome info huh?
I look forward to that email every single week.
It's so exciting to get to see how much your baby has grown in just one week.
It also has an animated photo of what your baby looks like that week, as well as a 3-D ultrasound photo.
Another fun thing is I have started feeling my little apple move :)
I forgot how much I love that feeling, theres nothing in the world like it.
So when all of you girlies out there get preggers sign up on this site, it's awesome. 
Yay for babies.
