"37 weeksYOUR BODY:
You are probably not seeing much change in the size of your tummy now, and your weight should be close to the maximum that your health care provider predicted or recommended. You can expect your caregiver to perform a pelvic exam around this time to help determine the progress of your pregnancy and better judge your due date.YOUR BABY THIS WEEK
Your due date is so close that you could easily deliver at any time! Chances are very good that delivering from this week on, your baby will be healthy. Take a deep breath…labor, delivery and motherhood will all be amazing and wonderful experiences!YOUR BABY:
Baby's weight continues to increase, reaching around 6.5 pounds (3.2 kg) now. While baby is about 21 inches (53 cm) long, his limbs and tummy are all growing rounder and chubbier every day. His skin is less wrinkly now and most of the redness has turned to a hue that reflects your baby’s ethnic heritage. By this time, most babies descend down into your pelvis, head first, getting ready for birth. In about 3% of pregnancies, babies turn in the other direction, a situation known as a breech presentation. If this is the case for your baby, don’t worry since this often changes—sometimes just hours before labor!"
&&We decided against the pink Mary Ann travel system. We got the Passage 530 travel system in Orchard. I like this one a lot better, I'm more drawn to color. & just in case we have a little boy along the lines he can use the same TS, & we won't have to spend more moneyyyyy.
I have another doctors appointment tomorrow, hopefully I'll hear more good news. I had a lot of painful cramping last night, & two or three contractions that just about startled the pants off of me. Also a little bit of lower back pain. Maybe they'll tell me I'm starting to dilate and that she'll be here on time. :D
I'm going to really miss her in my tummy though, I guess that sounds odd. I love putting my hand on my stomach and feeling her kick & roll around. Also because I know she's safe in my stomach, & nothing can hurt her while she's in there.
The baby shower is on Saturday, & I'm getting anxious. Actually, I'm just anxious for anything exciting to happen. This year will be gooooooood.Make sure you RSVP.
TOMORROW = 37 weeks. 3 weeks (give or take) left to go.
