How your baby's growing:
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. She's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of her lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when hse's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel.
JP wanted to know this morning if you will need a stroller while you're here? I know you'll need a carseat. We can help you look into borrowing these while you're here if you don't want to purchase and have even more to travel home with... just let us know.
This week we have a check-up on Friday afternoon and I take the glucose tolerance test for gestational diabetes. I don't have any concerns and I'm sure the afternoon appointment will be pretty routine.
