Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
Baby's lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means he's now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in your womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid, but hey -- it's progress.

Movement: yes.

Belly Button in or out? In. But far more shallow.

What I am looking forward to: Halloween :o)
Weekly Wisdom: It isn't too late to buy a few more maternity clothes :o)
