I apologize for slacking lately on the updates. Bed rest is making me very tired. Can you believe that? I’m more tired by laying in bed all day!
Enough about me, let’s check on Yoda’s progress:
According to babygaga.com:
WOOHOO! We have two more ounces of amazing baby this week!
Your super-cute uterus hi-jacker is smack in the middle of a growth spurt!
Oh and guess what? They’re also all slathered in a greasy, waxy, cheese-like substance known as vernix caseosa.
Yeah, it sounds pretty nasty, but the mixture of fatty secretions covers your little swimmer from head to toe and protects their paper-thin skin from bruising, abrasions, and chapping caused by amniotic fluid exposure.
And then there’s the birthing process, right? You know, where you have to push something the size of a watermelon out a hole the size of a grape.
Well, that adorable little greased piglet would have a lot harder time getting through the birth canal if they didn’t have that greasy vernix caseosa slip-n-sliding them out of your hyper-extended birth canal.
And what size is Yoda this week?
Yoda is a sweet potato!
