My Pregnancy Brain: Now that the nursery is started its really staring to hit me that we are going to have a baby very soon. I cant wait to hold her!
What the baby looks like this week: She now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help 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.
She is begining to develop her own immune system, instead of relying solely on antibodies received through the placenta.
