Sweet Baby 36 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on


Sweet Baby weighs as much as a Crenshaw Melon! 
Sweet Baby is getting so big!  She’s super active and I can feel every little movement!  Not long until I can see her little fingers, toes, and her precious little face!  We’re counting down the days now!  Can you believe there’s only 26 days left until my due date?  I feel like it was just yesterday we found out!
36 weeks
She’s also super active right before bed.  Last night she was kicking and moving until 12 am!  I finally fell asleep and when I woke up she woke up with me.  Can’t wait to snuggle her up already!
Baby Bump 36 Weeks
About our baby:   Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She’s shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement.     (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
