Baby is waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it’s likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. The outer layers of her skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath. Okay… well all this is wonderful but- WHEN IS SHE COMING OUT?!?
We saw our midwife Julia on Tuesday. Julia said that baby has not begun to go into my pelvis, but that she has not gotten any higher (like she did last week). She booked us in for 2 more weeks of prenatal appointments, and no, I did not miss the fact that the second appointment will fall AFTER the due date! Julia also estimated that little missy is around 8 pounds (which I think is an overestimate obviously). Baby’s heartbeat sounded good and she was just as active as she always is, she she’s happy in there!
