# 2, week 18

Week 18 has been better than week 17. Woo hoo! I haven't felt great, but I feel "better" and that's a start. There is a lot going on in my life, at home and at work. All I can do is trust in the Lord and know that he will take care of me. Praying for a peaceful, drama-free, weekend.

What has to say about week 18:

How your baby's growing:
Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
