36 Weeks

How baby’s growing:

Baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds 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. 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. Yum!

Below are some pictures… our baby is sitting backwards from how the baby below is. Our baby is looking outwards. An elder that I have had the joy of knowing shared with me that this is because our baby is a busy body like her mom and she just has to see what is going on all the time…
