So much is happening to prepare me to meet my mommy.
I will gain over 2 more pounds this month.
My hair will get thicker and I will look rounder and cuter.
My fingernails and toenails are growing.
My bone marrow is producing needed red blood cells.
My hands have a strong grip and I like to grasp my foot, my hand, fingers, toes, or umbilical cord.
I am getting crowded and restless in here. Almost 30% of the time I am in quiet sleep but I am sleeping less and less (and so is mommy).
I have gotten good at my breathing movements, which develop my lungs and prepare my chest muscles to take the first breath after my birth.
My immune system is developing rapidly which I will need soon.
My favorite music is still classical, and especially choral music and piano because they sound like someone is talking to me.
At 36 weeks I have been in various positions but soon will turn head down for my grand entrance into the world.
I can hardly wait!
Look out, World!!
