You’re probably spending most of your waking hours imagining greeting your little one face to face at last! What will your baby look like? There’s no way to tell. For example, many dark haired parents give birth to fair headed babies, and vice versa. Meanwhile, your baby’s eyes may not show their true colors until your baby is about six months old, staying the same slate grey-blue color they were at birth. That’s because a baby’s iris’s gain pigment during the first six months of life, making some lighter colored eyes turn darker green or brown. But for now, your baby is still in your belly, and probably measures about 20 inches. And weights about seven pounds, the size of a small watermelon? Most of the lanugo has disappeared from your baby’s body, although he may be born with a fine coating of hair on his back or shoulders. Much of the vernix has vanished as well, although, again, you’ll notice some of this waxy, white moisturizer at birth. Just a few more days to go, mom. Hang in there, and check back to find out what happens during your last week or two.
