23 weeks

How your baby's growing: Your baby is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango). His skin is red and wrinkled. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare him for breathing. He can swallow, but he normally won't pass his first stool (called meconium) until after birth. Loud noises heard often in utero — such as your dog barking or the roar of a vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze your baby when he hears them outside the womb.

*added 4/9* For Nicki, here I am looking hot with no makeup left on my face.
This was taken Monday night.


  1. We need a weekly pic with these updates. Those of us that can't don't live nearby want to see the belly!

  2. Thanks girlfriend! You're still way cute at the end of the day. Dimples always make up for no makeup. ;) I just can't believe how tiny you are. You literally don't look like anything's getting bigger but the belly. So cute!

  3. Nicki you are too sweet.

    Correction: The boobs are also getting bigger. Just when I think they've settled down, they decide it's time for another growth spurt! I swear they are gonna be as big as my head by the time I'm nursing.
