31 Weeks

This week marks a major milestone in Miran’s development: his lungs are now mature enough to breathe air on their own! He might still need a little assistance if he were born now, but he would probably not need to be on a ventilator.

His skin is also much smoother now and has turned pink from the ever-increasing fat deposits he is laying down. Basically, he looks just like a full-term infant except a little thinner and a little smaller. Everything else is in proportion and in place!

Six weeks till he’s full-term!!!


  1. Yay!!! All good news, thanks for the update. I can't believe that he is full term in six weeks. The time has gone by SO quickly! It really feels like yesterday when we were all eating at that health food restaurant on the upper west side and you guys told us the happy news.

    See you three this week!

  2. Dear Leana -

    This is so wonderful. I am sending you love and good vibes and a big hug to Miran.

    With love always,
