Pip – Week Nine

Latest developments from Pip:

  • I’m now the size of a peapod and weigh less than a tenth of an ounce. #

  • By the end of this week I should be 2.3 centimetres long. #
  • Tasty! I’ve just started growing a tongue… #
  • My eyelids are fused (don’t worry though, they’re supposed to be) and won’t open for another 19 weeks – not much to see in here anyway ;o) #
  • My wrists feel more developed, my ankles have formed & my fingers + toes are clearly visible – arms are growing longer & bend at the elbows #
  • The inner workings of the ears are almost complete, and my genitals have begun to form (the two things aren’t related!) #
  • I’m going to have my picture taken on 28th April – mummy and daddy’s Wedding Anniversary – I can’t wait! #
  • I’m getting stronger – my bones are coming together now… #

  • My hands now bend at the wrist, and my feet are beginning to lose their webbed appearance – at last! #
