Finally, the month of September 2009 has arrived! This simply means that any moment from now, I will give birth to Baby Bella! Isn’t that exciting?!
Anyway, according to www.baby2see.com, I am 37 weeks pregnant and here are the developments Baby Bella has:
* Typically, baby now measures 19.5 inches (50 cm) from the head to the heel.
* Baby weighs up to 7 pounds or 3 kilograms.
* The head diameter is over 3.5 inches (9cm).
* The water could break at any time.
* If it does happen, see a doctor immediately.
Gaining one ounce per day, your baby is growing rapidly. Keep up those exercises, especially your Kegels. Keeping your pelvic floor muscles toned will aid in a quicker recovery from the birth. An elbow, foot or head may protrude from your stomach when baby stretches and squirms about. Soon, as the wall of your uterus and your abdomen stretch thinner and let in more light, your baby will begin to develop daily activity cycles.
Even though you are three weeks from your due date, you are now considered full term. In most cases, nothing will be done to stop your labor once it starts, even if it is before your 40th week. You may notice a bit more vaginal discharge and/or cervical mucus.
Since 37 weeks is already considered full-term, you might expect me to be suddenly offline in the next few days because probably I might have given birth already! So if that happens, expect to see baby pictures on my next updates!
