This week Baby M is being compared to several different things this week. He weigh approximately 4.5 lbs that of a grown duck or weight of a pineapple. He is 17.5" long the length of collarbone length pearl necklace.
The bones in your baby's skull are soft and are not yet fused together. This pliability allows the bones to overlap; making that trip down the tight birth canal possible (and resulting in that surprising cone head look your baby will sport for the first few days post-birth. Don't worry, it's totally normal and that's what hats are for.)

Amniotic-fluid level has maxed out, which explains why some of the pokes and kicks feel pretty sharp these days. (There's less fluid to cushion the blows.) Antibodies are being passed from me to Baby M as he continues to develop his own fetal immune system, which will come in handy once he's outside the womb and fending off all sorts of germs.
Baby M’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through my belly.
Well thats about all the updates I have for this week. This will be my last weekend home til after Baby M makes his appearence. It's going to be tough but its for the best.
Til next week
Love to all-
Jina and Baby M
