Pregnancy Symptoms this Week:
Pregnancy Prep: Finished painting the crib, thanks babe :). started cleaning the room so hopefully we will have the room set up in time for the shower next weekend.
Dr Visits: Had one this week nothing special, just the usual. except now i'm going in every two weeks, holy smokes that means were in the home stretch.
What the baby looks like this week: This week he weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal.
Kicks and movements are practically visible from space now. The big news this week is lung development—baby's respiratory system is almost completely mature. That means if your baby was born this week, odds are he'd be a healthy bouncing baby with a just a little help from his friends (aka, the NICU). Some of the specifics are: Your baby can now detect light and tell the difference between night and day. His pupils will constrict and dilate in response to light.
