Milly’s got a lot going on this week.  She should be about seven inches long and about eleven ounces.  She’s swallowing amniotic fluid, which does several things for her.  Not only does it hydrate and nourish her, but it helps her practice swallowing and digestion.  She can also get a taste for whatever Amanda’s eating now, so I need to remind Amanda to eat more variety.

Milly’s arms and legs are in the proper proporations now and bone is developing from cartilage which, along with the formation of neurons between the brain and the muscles, gives her more coordinated movement, as opposed to jerky movements she had before.
