Baby Ramey’s Progress
Your baby is growing, and it's just starting to show on you! By the end of this week your baby will be about the size of a grapefruit--but SO much sweeter! While baby's little ears are almost in place, the eyes are still far apart. Baby's tiny body is also covered in a fine coating of hair known as lanugo. Most of this "peach fuzz" will be shed around the time of birth. The growth spurt continues and your baby's skeleton is staring to really take shape. The bones are hardening and beginning to retain calcium, so it's vital that you continue to eat low-fat dairy products. Your baby will thank you!
Your Body This Week
You should begin to feel a bit of a tummy bulge now, about 3 to 4 inches below your belly button, but other people probably won't notice unless you are wearing a swimsuit. If you're not already a side-sleeper, this is a good time to begin. Lying on your back can create pressure on blood vessels and block circulation to your baby, while stomach sleeping can compress your uterus. Side sleeping is optimal for baby-and probably more comfortable for you, too!
