My 37 weeks of #pregnancy...

How your baby's growing:

Your due date is very close now, but doctors don't consider your baby "full term" until 39 weeks. Spending the next two weeks in the womb allows your baby's brain and lungs to fully mature. So if you're planning to have a repeat c-section, for example, your practitioner will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there's a medical reason to intervene earlier.

Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (about the size of a bunch 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. source: http://www.babycenter.com/6_your-pregnancy-37-weeks_1126.bc

See what your baby looks like this week.


 My experiences for this week:
·        During the weekly checkup, I have the infant's monitor test for about 20 minutes to ensure that the baby's heart rate is stable and the result good..nothing to worry about
·        I also had my ultrasound to check for fluid, that didn't I know, but if the midwife worries or something wrong, they'll definitely inform me
·        I also have a culture something, [I don't remember] but they test me which I'll find out next visit of they'll hopefully call me
·        Gave me a lab test for my blood count between this week and the next visit
·        Today is the longest visit I have other than the first prenatal I have this year.

·        Got so many things to do in order to ensure the infant and my safety...

My 36 Weeks of Pregnancy, Yay!!! I'm officially 8 months!!!

How your baby's growing:

Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long (about the size of a head of romaine lettuce). She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement.

At the end of this week, your baby will be considered "early term." (Full-term is 39 to 40 weeks. Babies born before 37 weeks are pre-term, 41 weeks is late term, and those born after 42 are post-term.) Most likely your baby is already head-down. But if not, your practitioner may suggest scheduling an external cephalic version (ECV). That's a fancy way of saying that your practitioner will apply pressure to your abdomen to try to manipulate your baby into a head-down position. source: http://www.babycenter.com/6_your-pregnancy-36-weeks_1125.bc 
My experiences:
·        More hiccups of the baby, meaning he is eating more too. Just optimistic he won't be too large, before I pop him out ;-)
·        Another weekly prenatal visit
·        Nothing has really changed aside from the fact that less room for the baby inside, no more somersaults and even if he did, just way too uncomfortable
·        Sleeps at night is even uncomfortable
·        But love it when he squirms, finds a better pose within
·        Happy to hear that my OB are happy with the result of my glucose, which is well-maintain

·        Asked me again if I don't feel too big, which not anymore knowing that I'm almost getting there
*     I have never felt so discomfort driving until this very day. It's as if I am sitting on a recliner. Between the front and the coat as well as the limited seatbelt, totally the most uncomfortable position ever!
  • Definitely feeling more ready to pop now as I have felt more pressure below
