How your baby's growing:
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.
I am still rolling right along. I feel great still. My belly is growing bigger everyday, which means our Channing girl is growing away in there! I keep thinking more and more about meeting our sweet girl and seeing her face for the first time. Every time I think about it I tear up a little. I am already so excited to hold her and be her mom.
We started the registry process this last weekend and that is going pretty well. I am working on finishing that up this week. We are making progress with all of the things we have to get done before she gets here. Stay tuned for an updated 'Baby Bump' picture.
