15 weeks

Brittany is now 15 weeks pregnant. 100 days to be exact. I can't believe just how developed this little baby is already. The information below is copied and pasted out of her pregnancy calendar. She is starting to show and her clothes are not fitting so well anymore. We're going to have to be getting some maternity clothes soon.
Size About 4 to 4 1/2 inches and about 1 3/4 ounces.
Development - If you could see your baby's face, you might be able to see her wince and grimace, because her facial muscles are developing and flexing. All of her tiny organs, nerves, and muscles are starting to function. The intestines have moved farther into the baby's body; her liver begins to secrete bile, which will later aid in the digestion of fats; and her pancreas begins to produce insulin, a hormone which turns sugar into energy.
