The Baby - Week 33

This week the baby has finally broken the four pound mark – about the size of a pineapple. She has also passed the 17-inch mark which I beg to differ; I think she has to be longer than that for the places she seems to hit/kick at the same time. Her skeleton is hardening (and I am still drinking milk and eating other dairy like it is going out of style) but her skull bones won't fuse until after she is born (early adulthood so her brain and other tissue can grow) so she can more easily make it through the birth canal. Some of babies even come out like Coneheads because of the pressure of birth. Let's see, we have already established she will probably have a fairly big noggin so I am guessing I will have a Conehead baby for a few days. Maybe she will speak French ("We come from France")
