33 Weeks

Well this week the dreaded stretchmarks started to appear :( i noticed one line when getting out of the shower the other night and sure enough, it was a stretch mark, i seem to only have the one, and a couple of sort of dots that will ineviatably turn into lines as well.
Oh well, the price you pay i guess.
We both got colds this week too. Aaron got one and i woke up the very next day suffering the same symptoms.Aaron luckily got over his quite quickly and i am still holding onto mine, but hopefully its getting better than it is worse.Its miserable having a cold, not being able to breath anymore than i already cant because of the limited space from the baby.
We have had horrible weather up here this week!Its been all over the news everyday.I hope it doesnt last long because its terrifying.The wond is so strong and the rain comes down and just floods everywhere within hours of it starting.I dont like Aaron having to drive to work in it.And i dont like being home alone with it even more so.
Week 33
Amniotic fluid is at its highest level during pregnancy.
Your baby's head size has increased 3/8ths of an inch due to rapid brain growth.
Neurons and synapses are developing in huge numbers -- forming connections in your baby's brain will give him the skills he needs to thrive as a newborn. This week, he may be able to coordinate sucking and swallowing with breathing.
While most of his bones are hardening, his skull is quite pliable and not completely joined. The bones will be able to move slightly to make birthing easier.
You baby takes intermittent deep breaths -- of water! That's okay, though since she gets oxygen from the placenta. This breathing exercises muscles and encourages her lung cells to produce more surfactant (a protein essential for healthy lung development).
If your baby is a boy, his testicles will be descending from his abdomen into his scrotum. Sometimes one or both testicles won't move into position until after birth.
Your infant is now 17.2 inches (43.7cm) long and weighs 4.23 pounds (1918gm).
