Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that she’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew). Because it’s so snug in your womb, she isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times she kicks should remain about the same. Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete – she’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
I don’t like honeydew melon :-\ And we all know she’s far exceeded 5 1/4lbs. One week from today and we’ll know if she’s coming sooner rather than later.
It snowed here big time yesterday. I think the newspaper said we got 8 inches of the white stuff. We normally only get about an inch at any given time so this was a big deal! So naturally I worked from home today. We still have a snow advisory through tonight but I’ve only seen a few flakes fall today. I think our back yard actually got up to 40 degrees for an hour or two. It’s back down to 34 degrees.
