only 4 more weeks to go!!!

24Oct08

Little Moon is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. He now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. He’s shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered his body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected his skin during the nine-month amniotic bath. Little Moon swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture called meconium. This will form the contents of his first bowel movement- fun.

At the end of this week, Little Moon will be considered full-term! On Friday we have a sonogram with Sal.  We will find out all sorts of good stuff like how big Little Moon is and if he is pointing in the right direction.  It won’t be long and everybody will be able to meet Little Moon in person (God-willing).  It is getting exciting!!!

Little Moon is the weight of a crenshaw melon!
