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:

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...
