33 weeks!

7 weeks to go. I'd like to point out that 7 is an incredibly small number.

The baby weighs about 4.4 pounds and is almost 19 inches long. All the bones (except the skull) are hardening. Nesting is common in the third trimester and the book says that a strong nesting urge at the due date week can signal the onset of labor. The book also suggests freezing food now so we have plenty to eat (easily) after the baby is born.

Here's the APA's information on the baby:

Your baby’s skin is beginning to look less red and less wrinkled. Fat stores are continuing to be deposited under his/her skin. His/her bones are all beginning to harden except for the skull. The skull needs to remain soft and pliable for delivery.
