Week 35 = Chris weighs about 5 and half pounds now. Chris is really putting on baby fat which will help keep Chris warm after birth. “I’m still eating leftovers from Thanksgiving.” The lungs are almost complete. You may be able to see Chris’ body parts as the uterine wall gets thinner – feet, head, and hands. Mom is looking for a pediatrician to examine the baby after birth. She’s getting ready in case Chris is ready.
“So stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming.” Mt. 24:42
