This week, I measure just over 16 inches long and weigh about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and am heading into a growth spurt. I can turn my head from side to side, and my arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath my skin. I'm probably moving a lot, too, so mommy may have trouble sleeping because my kicks and somersaults may keep her up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that I am active and healthy.
Also mommy has been having mild contractions and went to the hospital night before last and was hooked up to monitors for hours where they said that I looked like I was doing great and her contractions were touch and go but not so bad that it would harm me. Mommy has 9 more weeks left but at this point it really could be anytime that I make my sweet arrival!
