Baby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.
So Baby Pedersen is now the size of a Honeydew. And s/he certainly does react to light. Occasionally John and I will shine a flashlight into my belly and s/he will move all around and try to figure out what is going on. John doesn't like to do that though...he thinks he is hurting the baby.
