Well for the last two weeks I’ve been 2 cm dilated! Dr Sammons said she’s still way up there though floating in my ribs! I can tell haha! I’ve been having a bit of acid reflux when I sleep but other then that I feel fabulous! I’m pretty sure Baby Grace is now content and has no intention of leaving soon. She’s just getting fat and happy! I’m trying to really soak up these last couple weeks we get together! I love when she starts moving and playing! Although sometimes her moving hurts lol! She’s just as fun as her big sister was! I can not wait to see how much they look alike when she decides to make her big debut! I can’t lie I’m getting a bit more nervous about the birth since everything that happened last time… Im just praying and trusting God that everything will be fine! We’re hoping for a wonderful V-Bac. So here is what Baby Grace is up to this week!
Hey, your little one isn’t so little anymore, weighing close to seven pounds and measuring 20 inches long. Fetal development is nearly complete as your baby tends to a few last-minute details like shedding the skin-protecting vernix and lanugo. She’s also producing more surfactant, a substance that prevents the air sacs in her lungs from sticking to one another once she starts to breathe.
Most of the changes this week are small but important: She’s continuing to add fat (so she can take advantage of all those photo ops by sporting a round, cute baby look!) and fine-tuning her brain and nervous system (so she can deal with all the stimulation that awaits her once she makes her entrance into the world).
