39 weeks

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby’s waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it’s likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.”

Hmm even Babycenter didn’t have much to say about this week. Probably because nothing seems to be going on in there…it’s all just waiting. I had my 39wk check-up on Weds, and the doc said that nothing was going on. 0 cm dilated, ~50% effaced, and that she had lowered a little bit which was probably what is causing the ucky cramping i keep having. sometimes i can barely move. buuut, I’m hoping I still have until the end of next week, because anything before the 16th just doesn’t really work for me. i have my 40week appointment on Monday which will be when they schedule the induction. *fingers crossed i don’t go Mon, Tues, or Weds!*


Heather, one of my Girl Scouts, made me these awesome onesies for Arianna. Then all the scouts signed the back of one of them. So sweet!
