What I researched lately: (All 6 weeks) Baby Mia's digestive system has developed enough to start absorbing water and small amounts of sugar from the amniotic fluid that she swallows. Bone marrow has also developed! Baby has also grown visible eyebrows, eyelashes and hair on her scalp. Our sweet baby Girl is developing sense she will use in the outside world! Since were having a little girl I must add that by this point her uterus and ovaries are in place, while Queen Victoria has developed! She has fully formed fingers and finger print (Which will not only grant her, her unique-ness in the world, but will also allow me to paint her nails) AWEESOME!! Baby can react to sound from the outside and even react when playing with a flashlight!
22nd - 23rd week
Fun Baby & Bump facts for week #27:
- Baby detects Light changes at this point (She jumps around and moves like crazy when I shine a Flashlight on my Belly)
- Mia resembles what she will look like at Birth
- Her hearing is mature enough to recognize both my voice and Javi's!
- Javi may be able to hear Mia's Heartbeat by putting his head on my Belly!
Symptoms: Besides my usual sleepy-ness these past weeks have been amazing, even though I've been uber busy and under a lot of stress Princess Mia has behaved! She's awesome!

We went in for our morphogenetic ultrasound, which showed nothing but a BIG, Chubby and HEALTHY Baby! (We are so grateful to God!
