Yes, that is right … two weeks. Fourteen days. HOLY COW! How the heck did that happen?? I have been in complete denial about packing my bag for the hospital. I am going to get it done today, but every time I think about it, I hesitate … like having that bag packed means that the baby can come right now. I am not ready for it to come right now! This is supposed to still be SO FAR AWAY! I keep having moments where I think “What the heck am I going to do with a little itty bitty baby?”
So at 38 weeks, the baby is a whoppin’ 6.8lbs and 19.5inches long! It is definitely feeling bigger and stronger in me too – what were nice little kicks at first are now visible movements from outside my belly. And I am getting kicked on both sides at once, which is crazy & fun. It does feel like the baby is trying to kick out a northern exit at times though!
Here is a photo from Wednesday (day of my doc appointment). I may not grow out much more, as the baby should start to drop a bit and that will make me just change shape. Will be interesting to see if it is noticeable between this week & the next two weeks!
