Almost Time

Yesterday, I was sitting at my hair appointment and came to the realization that I may not make it to my next hair appointment. I usually go every 6 weeks to get my hair done and well in 6 weeks I will be almost 38 weeks. (My chances are I will be able to make it but you never know) I think I better just go in 4 or 5 weeks just in case. It's the small things like this that make me realize just how close I am to having a baby.

Just a little late but let's see what Maddox is up to at 31 weeks.

As far as growth goes, your baby's still on a roll, measuring an impressive 18 inches and weighing in at more than three pounds (keep in mind he was 3 lbs 12 oz's last Friday). At 31 weeks pregnant, you can still expect your baby to gain at least three to five pounds, possibly more, before you two meet. Your baby's brain is working overtime these days, developing faster than ever. Connections between individual nerve cells are growing at a frenetic clip, and your baby can now perceive information from all five senses. Sure, your baby can't smell anything right now, but that's only because he or she is still submerged in amniotic fluid and needs to be breathing air to get a whiff of anything. Lucky for you — and your baby — yours will be one of the very first scents your baby breathes in, a scent that will quickly become his or her very favorite.
