This week baby girl is measuring around 18 inches and weighing in at 5lbs. Her lung, brain and central nervous system are rapidly developing. Vernix is covering her body and she is weeing up to 1 pint a day.
I feel like my symptoms are pretty consistent now as I enter the final few weeks. I'm generally feeling ok, the HG is still there and I felt sick on occasion this week. The tiredness is starting to creep in at the end of the week. I feel myself wishing Fridays away so that I can rest a little on a weekend. I'm getting more and more Braxton hicks every week, I guess my body is starting to prepare itself for labour. I'm feeling more pressure so I knew baby girl moved from transverse to head down, more about that in my 34 week midwife appointment update. I'm also a lot more hungry this week. Kind of makes sense with how much weight baby girl is meant to be gaining, around half a pound a week. I still don't really fancy eating or have any cravings, thanks HG!
Belly - 37.5 inches, half an inch on last week.
