It’s the final countdown! Ba na na na ba na na na na! Welcome to the third trimester mama!!
Baby’s sense of touch, smell and hearing are fully developed as baby’s brain is adding billions of nerve cells. Baby continues to gain fat and the nervous system is becoming more and more robust. As a result baby has a more controlled body temperature. Look at you little one, doing it by yourself!!
Baby’s adrenal glands are now producing androgen (if you’re having a boy) or estrogen (if you’re having a girl) which tells your body it’s time to start lactating.
