Pregnancy Week 38 April 7, 2009

Posted by battysgirl in Baby Fever.

Sorry a little late this time around!  We’re halfway through the week already!

What The Experts Say:


Baby: Your baby is about 21 inches (53.3cm) from head to toe and weighs about 6.8 pounds (3.1kg). Most of the baby’s downy hair, lanugo, and whitish coating, vernix, is disappearing. Your baby is getting its antibodies from you to protect against illness. Baby’s growth is slowing, but fat cells under skin get plumper for life outside the womb. Almost ready for birth, your baby would do well if born now.

Mom-to-be:You’re probably not getting any bigger, but you may be feeling more uncomfortable. Make sure you have a bag packed. It won’t be long now — 95% of all babies are born within two weeks of their mother’s due date.

What’s Going On With Us:

We were informed at our appointments last week that we will be induced at 39 weeks.  While I’m not looking forward to this I’ve accepted that the doctor’s know best and now I’m excited to have a concrete idea of when Baby P will be coming home.  At our appointment this week we should have a more concrete idea of when the actual induction will take place.

Baby P weighed in at around six pounds 14 ounces at her check up.  She’s perfect, of course!
