A few weeks ago I wasn't sure if I would make it but I did! FULL TERM! Yeah! Now it's just a waiting game. Hopefully Elmo will arrive sooner rather than later but I also know there is nothing I can do about it. Elmo will arrive when he's good and ready. I just have to be a little more patient. Now for the weekly update on development:
Congratulations — your baby is full term! This means that if your baby arrives now, his lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still three weeks away.Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.
We're having a nice weekend -- dinner with friends last night and date night for us tonight. I know that soon we won't have the time or energy for either of those things. We need to enjoy them while we can!
