We are now entering the 8th month! We just entered the single digit countdown - only 9 more weeks to go!
From the last appointment the results of the glucose screening revealed that Shauna is mildly anemic. This requires that in addition to her daily prenatal vitamin, she must take an iron supplement. Otherwise, the appointment was routine. Instead of every 4 weeks, the spacing of our appointments will be shortened to every 2 weeks from here on out. We are getting closer and more anxious by the day!
At 31 weeks the baby...
- Weighs about 3.5 lbs
- Is approximately 16.5 inches long
- Will gain .5 lbs per week until birth
