I’m Lovin’ It: Yoda at Week 29*

Yoda is growing leaps and bounds. He’s growing so much that my MFM is officially a little concerned at the possibility I might need to be induced before my due date. There’ll be another blog post on that tomorrow. Let’s check in to see how Yoda is doing now.

According to babygaga.com:

If you’ve been feeling weird little fluttering butterflies in your belly, it’s not just your run-of-the-mill pre-birth performance anxiety.

Actually, it’s your amazing baby with a case of the hiccups: a fairly common occurrence at this point, due to them practicing breathing for their big birthday.

In addition to getting a round of butterfly-like hiccups, your little swimmer has arduously managed to accumulate enough baby fat to account for nearly 3.5% of their overall body weight.

Yeah, compared to we lardy adults, it’s not very impressive, but considering they used to have NO fat, it’s certainly a healthy (and body-warming) accomplishment in its way.

Another fantastic life-critical accomplishment: your baby’s spleen is now in charge of hematopoiesis — the 10 dollar name for the process involved in building up certain important blood components.

*****

I’ll admit it, I’m really not sure what I just read other than Yoda has a layer of fat on him that he didn’t have before. Why couldn’t they just say it like that? So much simpler.

And what size is Yoda this week?
