33 Weeks!

Gustavo and Milena will be here in LESS THAN 5 weeks!  We are in the home stretch!  These babies are definitely preparing for birth! 
  • They each weigh about 4.4 pounds and are about 19.4 inches long! 
  • They are rapidly losing the wrinkled look as they continue to add more fat. 
  • The skeleton is hardening. 
  • They are doing lots of sleeping and because it's possible to see breathing even when they are asleep, we know that the respiratory center in the brain has developed. 
  • They can now perspire, something that premature babies cannot do, and the capability to regulate body temperature is maturing.
  • The muscles have developed. 
  • Languno hair is starting to fall off.
It is SO exciting to think that these babies are preparing for life outside the womb!  It's also hard to believe that I will only be pregnant for a few more weeks!  I have all kinds of feelings and emotions going on, but that will have to wait for another post...

In the meantime, here's a picture of the good 'ol belly!
