Off to L&D to remove the cerclage and walk walk walk. Today may be the day our little guys make their grand appearance into the world. Please say a little prayer and think good thoughts for the four of us. We will keep you posted!

Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement. www.babycenter.com
