Your baby is still filling out in the womb and you'll notice that your stomach begins to expand on the sides as well as the front. The baby is now at 1.5 lbs and is almost 10 inches from the head to the butt.
The structures of the spine - 33 rings, 150 joints and 1000 ligaments - begin to form. The blood vessels of the lungs are developing and the nostrils begin to open. The skin is still a bit wrinkled as there is more weight to be gained before birth, but it's not transparent anymore.
And yes, the room is blue and will remain blue....It really looks like we'll be having a boy, but even if it turns out to be a girl, it really should be too hard to "girl-ify" it. Much less traumatizing for a girl to be in a blue room than a boy to be in a pink one, I think.
Oh, and look what I found at our local Asian grocery store....
Sorry, the picture of the mooncake itself is overly bright....I couldn't wait any longer to sample it! This is the very first time I've bought mooncake from the States - simply because it's usually outrageously overpriced, and quite frankly, I'm usually quite clueless about the seasons and will completely miss it until it's too late.
