This week you may be able to make out baby’s hand or foot as it presses out against your belly. If you haven’t registered that there’s a little human inside waiting to make an entrance, it’s hard to deny it now.
 
Baby’s vernix, the waxy coating that covers baby’s skin before birth, starts to thicken this week. This is a last push to keep baby warm for the next couple of weeks. Full term is fast approaching! While most first time mothers go past 40 weeks, baby will arrive when baby decides. So now is a good time to start planning and packing!!

“The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.”

-George Santayana
