Changes in the baby’s body

Baby is about the size of butternut squash, weighing about 2.5 pounds! He (or she) continues to gain weight and grow a layer of fat, becoming plumper.

The brain is getting more and more complex. According to BabyCentre UK, brain development needs half the total energy used by the baby! By the way, the baby is as active as he or she has been over the past few weeks, if not more so.

The baby’s skeleton is getting more and more solid, absorbing about 200 mg of calcium daily.

Oh, how fast babies grow during their third trimester! Looking at Meghan’s big belly, that's pretty evident, and she sure is excited about the life growing inside her by the day.
