Week 34--Developments and Changes

Welcome to a new week in baby growing 101. This week, the baby reaches 12.8 inches, crown to rump, and weighs about 5 pounds. Also this week:
  • The skeleton hardens, although the head remains pliable to maneuver through the birth canal
  • The skin becomes less red and less wrinkled
  • The toenails are present, and the fingernails have reached the tips of the fingers
  • Baby is also developing immunities to fight mild infections.
It's pretty quiet in the area of big changes and developments from here on out, pretty much only developing the lungs, and gaining weight. It makes for less interesting reading, I'm sure, but it also means that my little one is almost complete and ready for the world.
