37 weeks

Week 37's imagery

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

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 [try <10lbs]. About this time, your doctor might perform a pelvic exam to help judge the progress of your pregnancy [I’m sure everyone probably feels this way at this point in a pregnancy…but no exam necessary.  It feels as though she’s about to walk herself out at her convenience].

Tip of the Week: Just in case you deliver early, consider packing two bags for the hospital. Pack one bag for you, with warm socks, a robe, lip balm and everything you’ll want during labor. Pack the other bag with the newborn items you’ll want after your baby is born.

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
