3 Weeks to go!
Oh My, Bean is considered FULL TERM this week! Can you believe it? I know I can’t! One thing I can believe is that this little guy is staying right were he belongs until at least his due date. I’m super sure of it! And I hope I’m just not trying to convince myself of this. And I really don’t think I am because well I pretty positive I haven’t even dropped yet! While others may think I have I know I’ve been carrying him at pretty much the same place always.
So from Babycenter
How your baby’s growing:
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.
They mention how my Braxton Hicks might be longer and a little more uncomfortable. But unless something changes shortly, which obviously it can I don’t think I’ve had an Braxton Hicks contractions or at least not any that were very strong. I think I may have had one this week so you know like 36 Weeks 4 Days or so. But it wasn’t particularly strong nor did it last long and it really could have been some other sort of pain! I’m still feeling really good and feel blessed to have had such a great pregnancy. I can only hope and pray that the delivery can be just as easy!
