Week 31

Week Thirty-One

    Week 31

  • The rate of physical growth slows down just a bit, but even though she doesn’t get much longer, she will gain a lot of weight the rest of the pregnancy.

  • Fat continues accumulating. This layer of fat turns her skin from red to the rosy pink she will have as a newborn.

  • Calcium, phosphorus and iron are being stored and her bones are growing and hardening.

  • Your baby is 16.2 inches (41.1cm) long and weighs 3.3 pounds (1502gm)

  • Her brain enters another period of rapid growth, producing hundreds of billions of new nerve cells! Amazing!

  • She may move to the rhythm of music. Studies with heart rates show that she also prefers some types of music to others — already!

  • Lungs are the only major organ left to complete development. Remember, that while you may be anxious to meet your little one that these last few weeks can be vital – with each day increasing your baby’s ability to breathe on her own.

My Niece’s Face

Today was so amazing!  I gotto see Princess’s little face!  She is sooo pretty!  We went to get Laura’s 3D sonogram this morning.  It was awesome.  Princess didn’t fully cooperate, she was snug in her “Special” Place and didn’t want to move.  LOL  We did get some good pictures.  You can see them all HERE

 We found out that princess has HUGE feet.  She got these from her daddy!  We all have small feet on our side of the family!

I almost missed it.  I had set my alarm clock for 7pm instead of 7am!  Laura called and called, but we do not have a phone upstairs, and we are down to only one phone downstairs.  I have to fix this problem ASAP! 

After the sonogram my Dad and Laura and Brandon came back here and we took this weeks pictures.  I really love getting all of Laura’s growth in pictures.  It will be great to look back on once she is a skinny mini again!
