I'm feeling every bit of having two canteloupes in my belly!
It's amazing how big the girls are getting. I'm anxious for their measurements next week, but the estimate below should be fairly close. They are very active and I'm absolutely mesmorized by watching them move. It makes me a little nauseated now and then when they both get going - especially if they get near my belly button (which is still an innie, thank you very much!).
I never thought I would make it this far. It's truly a miracle in itself. 34 weeks. Wow. God is truly watching over us.
Your baby now measures about 20.25 inches (45cm) in total length and weighs around 5.5 lbs (2550g). Crown to rump measurement is about 13.2 inches (33cm).
He continues to grow and fatten up, especially in the shoulder area, and kicks regularly.
The fine lanugo hair that covered your baby is shedding, though some may still be present when your baby is born.
Your baby's eyes are blue, though this may change soon after birth or much later after birth.
Your baby's fingernails are growing. They already reach the tips of his fingers and they may even look quite long and pointy by the time he is born. Your baby may even have some scratch marks from scratching his face with his fingernails.
Your baby is probably feeling quite cramped right now and his movements are restricted by his growing size.
