Baby Update: Second Trimester

There are a lot of things going on this week! All twenty teeth have formed. Our baby approximately weighs 1 ounce. Consider that the placenta weighs about an ounce now as well.
Your baby's intestines are migrating from the umbilical cord into his or her abdomen. The villi are also forming in the intestines, these help in peristaltic movements and digestion. The pancreas is even secreting insulin.
The baby also got it's first Christmas presents: a blanket, a bib and onesie and a book...Goodnight Moon. We can't wait to read it to you!
