The time to panic is approaching

Only 14 weeks are left before this rapidly growing fetus has to exit my uterus and become an infant.

Weighing in at about 750-800 grams and measuring around 23 cms you will begin to notice a distinct pattern of your baby’s sleep and wakeful times. These will usually coincide with your active and resting times of the day.

Your baby is developing taste buds and may already have a preference for certain foods. Her adult teeth are forming high in her gums, and her nerves around her mouth are becoming more sensitive. She also practices swallowing amniotic fluid, all of this occurs in preparation for when she has her first feed after birth.

There's an awful lot of "she" and "her" in there. Do you know something you haven't told us yet or is that just how it was written?

It has to do with that Drano you added to the urine sample doesn't it?

A word from the biologically squeamish to the both of you: eew.

Susan just did a cut and paste from somewhere else, which is why there are the "she" references. It's up to her if she lets you know the sex!

So I take it from your comment, Mark, that you guys do know? I've always been perplexed by the people who want to be surprised. That would be far too much suspense for me.

Anyone who does the scans tends to say "I think it's a ____" and then they say "But don't go painting the nursery ____"!

Basically, they know what it is but don't want you coming back and wanting to return it later.

So yeah, we know what it is. We decided it was easier if we knew what to expect.
