Week 31--Changes and Developments

This week is the lovely time when I started back to work after the winter vacation. It's crazy to me how vacations are never long enough, and you never get quite as much done as you had originally hoped you would. Oh well! This week, the baby's growth is actually supposed to slow down a little bit, but that doesn't mean it will stop by any means! Slowing down the growth allows the body to focus more on creating the connections between the nerve cells and other areas. Also, rather than just hearing random stuff the baby can now comprehend distinct sounds, and can even pick out voices and music! Other little developments to expect:
  • The lungs and digestive tract are nearly mature
  • The baby can see in the womb
  • The eyebrows and eyelashes are complete.
Other than that, things are pretty quite this week for both baby and us. Next week we have a couple small things going on, but at the end of the month is the baby shower, which I am REALLY excited for! Other than that, we play the waiting game.
