Her bully button has officially popped. Or protruded a bit shall be say. Along with the linea negra, all sorts of crazy are happening to her.
What still freaks me out though is how her body's internal organs were moved up and to the side to make room for the baby. Mother Nature is just cray cray....
Baby G is now gaining about six ounces of weight per week. This is now mainly due to the fact that the baby is now growing fat in his or her body.
The baby's hearing is almost what mine is not, sonic. He can hear everything at this point. And his face is nearly perfected at this point. Everything is where it's supposed to be. If the baby has hair, it is actually white since the body does not have pigmentation just yet.
Luckily wife continues her application of Bio-Oil. She rubs the lotion on the hand.....(yes, famous line from Silence of the Lambs, but I digress). The oil is to keep her skin hydrated during the significant stretching metamorphosis its undergoing.
Interestingly, she hasn't shared any clumsiness (in walking or stumbling). Right about now, their center of gravity is impacted and expecting mothers tend to trip or stumble upon things as they learn to gravitate towards their new center of gravity now that the baby is weighing down on her equilibrium.
(maybe her cankles are anchoring her into position...ok sorry sorry but couldn't resist).
