Milly should now be gaining weight at the rate of about a pound a week and should tip the scales at about four and a half this week.  She should grow about an inch this week.  As I’ve read, the amniotic fluid levels have maxed out because there’s not really any more room for it, which means that Milly’s kicks and other movements are more uncomfortable.  Amanda has mentioned lately that she’s been kicked or punched in the ribs some.  She seems to be shifting a lot, and there have been times in the last few days where we’ve seen huge movements or shifts of mass in Amanda’s tummy.

Also this week, Amanda’s passing antibodies to Milly, which are helping develop her immune system.

No pictures again this week.  We’re really going to have to make sure to do that this coming week.
