We have reached 37 weeks, which is officially full term! It is definitely reassuring to know that The Boy can come any time now without major concern. Of course we ideally want him to stay in another couple weeks to finish cooking. He now weighs about 6 1/3 pounds and is about 19 inches long. For those of you following the produce comparisons, that’s about the length of a stalk of Swiss chard. I can tell he’s taking up a bit more room in there as I get poked in the ribs every so often. Overall I still feel really good, some back ache still but in general I really have felt great. The belly does get in the way sometimes, not being able to bend over like I used to took some getting used to. Some of my shoes are getting tight, so I have been wearing my tennis shoes a lot. They are very comfy but getting them tied is a bit of a challenge! Jeff and I took Infant CPR on Saturday…those are skills we hope we never have to use, but it was good to practice just in case.
