The white, waxy coating protecting your baby's skin (vernix) is becoming thicker this week. When your baby is born, you may see traces of vernix firsthand, especially under your baby's arms, behind the ears and in the groin area.

At the same time, the soft, downy hair that has grown on the skin for the past several months (lanugo) is now almost completely gone.

At 34 weeks into your pregnancy, your baby weighs about 5 1/2 pounds and is about 12 1/2 inches long, crown to rump.
