I can’t believe we’re at thirty weeks now- only ten(ish) more to go!

Milly is around seventeen inches long now and weighs in at three pounds and counting.  The biggest thing changing for her right now is her brain, which is growing and starting to develop folds, looking more like a brain we’re used to seeing.

Part of the development of Milly’s brain is its ability to start taking on tasks that it hasn’t done up to now, like taking care of her body temperature.  Between that and the added fat, she’s starting to shed her lanugo, which, as you may recall, is the downy body hair that’s helped keep her warm up to now.
