"Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. His eyebrows and eyelids are fully developed. And you can certainly feel him move. He's oblivious to your schedule, though, so don't be surprised if he starts working out just when you're settling down for the night."

It's that great time of pregnancy when you look and feel great and finally have some energy back.  The other good part, not only are you allowed to eat after 8pm, you are encouraged to.  My strawberry craving continues although it maybe winding down.  No other food desires on a regular basis.  Except lots of it.  And then other times I have no appetite at all.
The other night we were laying on the couch and Jeff felt the baby kick.  That was a surprise because I didn't expect other people to be able to feel it this soon.  It's nice to be able to share that with him.
