18 Weeks and Counting!

How your baby's growing:

Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
Speaking of ultrasounds; we get to go Friday morning November 20th to find out if we are having a girl or a boy! I have been feeling pretty good and we are both getting so excited to see our little one on Friday! We have not had a sonogram since I was seven weeks along!
Please keep us in your prayers and we will be updating everyone on the good news Friday!!


  1. Grow, Baby Hump, Grow!!!

    By the way, though I know you purchased a test that told you Baby Hump will be a girl, Judah continues to be adamant that the baby is a BOY!! In fact, we teased her about it last went like this:

    Cody: But what if Baby Hump is a girl?

    Judah: No, Baby Hump is a boy!

    Cody: But what if it is a girl?


    Maybe she is right.

    Remind anyone of Kyle: "It could be poop..." "IT COULD BE DIRT!!!!!"

  2. hahahaha.... we shall see we shall see.... it will be funny if it is for sure a girl and we have to argue with her about it haha! cant wait to see yall!
