13 weeks today

Yup, I'm 13 weeks now. My tummy is getting bigger (of course ;) ). I might have Paul try to take a picture of me and post it but it might be difficult or take a while, as all of my website and photo programs are on my computer in the basement. Paul's been doing a great job taking care of me and Jared. I know it's hard on him and something he's not familiar in doing but he's doing great.

Here is a little blurb (from BabyCenter) on what's going on with the babies...
How your baby's growing: Your belly may soon be big enough to announce to the world (yeah, that has already happened ;) ) that you're expecting, but your baby is still tiny. In fact, he's only about 3 inches long crown to rump (wow, now imagine 4 babies in there, each of 3 inches long!! that's 12 inches of babies ;) ) — roughly the size of a jumbo shrimp — and weighs just about an ounce. Despite the small proportions, there's a fully formed baby inside your womb now. Much more proportional than it was a few weeks ago, his head is now only about a third the size of his body. His tiny, unique fingerprints are already in place. His kidneys and urinary tract are functional, and he's starting to urinate out the amniotic fluid he's been swallowing. As you start your second trimester, most of your baby's critical development will be completed, and your odds of miscarriage will drop considerably.
