Baby Names

I know we don't know if it is a boy or girl yet, but we have picked out names. We want to have four kids, so we picked out two girls and two boys names. If we have more than two of the same sex, we will have to pick out more names.

So the names are:

Raegan Rene
Stella Grace

Cohan Jack
Cameron Jay

As soon as I know what we are having I will let everyone know.

11 weeks

11 weeks... only 203 days to go!

In a week's time, the baby's weight has doubled from 5 to 10 grams. It has grown 0.4 inches (a full centimeter) and that growth continues. The little one now has a neck as well, enabling it to raise it's head. At this stage, the ovaries and testicles are being formed and all internal organs slowly continue to grow. The heart has been finished now, for example, so that the blood circulation can function and the muscles can strengthen.

The head is still disproportionately large - it's about the same size as the body. The eyes are finished, including the whites of the eye, iris and pupil. Up until the sixth month they'll stay closed; only then will the lids open and close. There's no need to see anyway, since it's dark inside the uterus; the only thing he does is grow and happily swim around.

Lunar Eclipse

One cold evening this week, Aaron thought it would be a good idea for us to go stand out in the cold and take pictures of the eclipse. I thought I would share a few pictures.

10 weeks

So I am 10 weeks along, only 202 days to go. I went to the doctor yesterday, and she said every thing looks good. I will go for an ultra sound on Monday to make sure of that. I thought I would post a little info about what happens during each week of the pregnancy.

So here is week 10:

  • The baby reaches a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom
  • The baby weighs less than a quarter of an ounce
  • The head comprises nearly half of the fetus' size
  • The face is well formed
  • Tooth buds, which will form the baby teeth, appear
  • The limbs are long and thin
  • The fetus can make a fist with its fingers
  • Genitals appear well differentiated
  • Red blood cells are produced in the liver
