About our lil Munchkin:
I'm at the halfway mark---YAY! My baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now and also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. His 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, yeah I know, we are having a BOY!
I had my anatomy ultrasound today and little munchkin cooperated and showed HIS private parts!
His name will be Isaac Keoni!
