Baby’s digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation… baby’s genitals are now fully formed!
We have officially moved into Week 20, which means that I’m halfway through the pregnancy! Baby has been active over the past few weeks, giving me some nice kicks. Derek has even been able to feel a few token nudges!
According to my sisters, I have an obvious baby bump that has developed significantly over the course of Christmas vacation. Wonder if it’s baby, or just food…. 🙂
