Another week down....

34 weeks
Can you believe it? Now I just hope the last few weeks go just as fast! My swelling has improved a bit but my left ankle is still nonexistent :-(

According to

All About Baby

Your unborn baby's muscles are maturing along with the rest of his body. He can hold his head up and turn it from side to side. He'll practice his newfound muscle tone by stretching out his arms and kicking his legs.

If you are indeed having a boy, the testes have descended into their proper place. Your baby's eyes are now open when awake, and closed when sleeping. Most of the lanugo is gone and replaced with a thick coat of vernix.

How Big Is Baby?

This week your baby is about 12.8 inches (crown to rump) and weighs nearly five pounds.
