Week 24 is here (and technically gone!) The baby is the length of a corn!!!
Here is what’s going on this week:
“Your baby’s growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he’s almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn) he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he’ll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing “branches” of the respiratory “tree” as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.”
I have to be honest, the pictures are really lame this week. It was late Sunday night and I realized that I should have done this days ago!! So I grabbed Matt and we took some quick pics after I had painted trim in the baby’s room and right before going to bed. So, here are the pictures. The bump is really noticeable this week!!
