Welcome to Week 39
Sunday, May 23, 2010
38 weeks pregnant — now in Week 39!
14 DAYS TO GO!
I can’t believe we’re in Week 39
. As in 39 out of 40.
Wowwww. There are just TWO WEEKS LEFT — only 14 days!
But realistically, the baby really does have to arrive this week. Because you see, otherwise my blog layout will be unbalanced. In my sidebar, there is just enough room for the pregnancy to end neatly on Week 39. If I need to add Week 40, the trimesters will be unbalanced, and we couldn’t have that. See? …
It’s official: this baby needs to arrive before midnight on Saturday. I’ve set a deadline!
OK, enough insane “planning.” Here’s what happening with Baby Boy this week:
Baby’s size: He could weigh between SEVEN and EIGHT whole pounds, and might measures 21 inches. I was 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and Darling Husband was NINE pounds, SIX ounces, so I’m betting our little guy is at least eight pounds … 10 wouldn’t surprise me.
Development: He’s fully-cooked (and no doubt EAGER TO ARRIVE, right?)
Appearance: Continuing to chub up, so he can fill out those newborn onesies … or outgrow them entirely? Must re-think hospital packing job …
