Baby #3: 33 Weeks
How I'm Feeling:
Hot! Today's high temperature is 109! I cannot believe it, except that I can feel it. Nonetheless, I still ventured out of the house for about 4 hours with the kiddos. Sarah had her 2 year check up and I had a few things to return that were duplicates from Norah's baby shower. I guess I'm just used to it, because it felt the same as every other day this summer. Just plain hot!
Baby Center says:
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) 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. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
