Week 37

Baby: Your baby is about 21 inches from head to toe and weighs almost 6.5 pounds. Baby is getting rounder every day, and skin is getting pinker and losing its wrinkly appearance. Baby’s head is usually positioned down into the pelvis by now.

Mom-to-be: Your uterus may stay the same size as it was for the last week or two. Your weight gain should be about as high as it will go, about 25 to 35 pounds. About this time, your doctor might perform a pelvic exam to help judge the progress of your pregnancy.

Thanks, WebMD…

The good news is that I’m Strep B negative, so I don’t need to get intravenous antibiotics during labor.  The non-news is that the small one is still head down.  The not really bad news but not good news either is that I’m still 40% effaced, the small one is still at station -1, and I’m not dilated, which means no progress since last week’s appointment.  Boo.

The doc’s estimate is that I’ll be right near by due date, but probably not past it.  So that means three more weeks to go.  Hmmm.
