34 Weeks

It was fun to Skype with Hanne & Tommy this afternoon... the clarity of image and voice is just amazing even though we're crossing an ocean to talk!

From Babycenter:
Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which she'll need to regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

We won't have to worry about any premie... Baby Sanna is comfy right where she's at for the next 6 weeks... even though she's stretching her muscle and very active, I know that she will wait until her parents are in town before making her grand entrance!
