31 Weeks & Road Trip!

I can't believe I am already 31 weeks! Only 9 more to go miss Emma!! I have been feeling much better this week, no contractions at all!! Emma is definitely growing and her movements are getting so strong now! Cody got to feel some pretty amazing movement last night!! My heartburn has actually been a bit better this week.

31 Weeks (Emma):

31 Weeks (Reese):

31 Weeks:
Your baby's crown-to-rump length is nearly 11.2 inches and total length is approximately 18 inches. Your baby weighs approximately 3.5 pounds at this point.

This week marks an incredible milestone in your baby's lung development. Before now, the air sacs and branches in your baby's lungs were present but not functional. The lungs were not able to inflate properly. However, now there is surfactant being produced in your baby's lungs. Surfactant prevents your baby's lungs from collapsing outside of the uterus and the baby is able to take in air and breathe properly. The fetal ear is almost completely developed both inside and out. Your baby can hear your voice and other familiar sounds that she will recognize after birth. Your baby is putting on white fat under the skin and the skin's color is pink instead of red at this point. Your baby's fingernails have grown to the end of her fingers and she may scratch herself while she is in the womb. 

This weekend we took Reese to Mason's 1st birthday party in Porter, TX (by Kingwood). Mason is my cousin's son and he is absolutely adorable! The drive up there was perfect and Reese was a true champ sitting in her car seat for 4 hours!

Once we arrived at the party Reese was ready to play!!

She now loves to help water the dogs :)
