35 weeks

I would be remiss if I didn't post this :)

Here is the development for 35 weeks.

Butternut Squash!

your baby at 35 weeks
  • Now, the hearing is fully developed, and baby responds best to high-pitched noises. 
  Your little Karate Kid can't quite pack the punch he used to due to the limited space inside the womb these days. You're likely to feel more wiggles, stretches and rolls than kicks and jabs. The extra layer of fat your baby is adding will create those cute dimples on your baby's elbows and knees. Baby's liver has begun processing waste products, so you know which organ to thank when they have their first blowout up the back of their onesie.

Baby's nails are growing so long they may curl over the tips of their tiny fingers and toes before they see a pair of clippers. Baby'll be in serious need of a mani-pedi once born (as will you).

Your baby is now about 5½ pounds and over 18 inches long—about the size of one of those price-club sheet cakes.
This week the final touches are being added to your mini-masterpiece and most of their development is going to packing on the pounds. While baby's movements may be becoming less jerky, they may do their final somersault in the womb soon—to get into the head-down position for birth.

I'm beginning to think that this baby has no intentions of EVER flipping. :)
