As of yesterday, we have fourteen days left.... or so! Because we all (!) have a feeling that this little baby is making it's entry a bit earlier than 'expected by the calendar'. So fourteen more days.....
... or much less!
Baby Center said this about week 38: "The baby has really plumped up. He or She weighs about 6.8 pounds and he or she is over 19 1/2 inches long.
He or She has a firm grasp, which I'll soon be able to test when I hold
his or her hand for the first time! (*me having a big grin on my face now!*) His or Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb."
Last week has been crazy. Being back from vacation, I had to put the house into order, doing tons of loads of laundry, washing floors, even dusting, and of course, throwing away lots of stuff. All things that I had no time for during the school year. You can call it a small case of nesting.....
Then I got sick, then the hubby got sick..... all the while, I am thinking: 'the baby can't come now!' Gladly, God heard our prayers, and at least for me, I am on the road of recovery. And miraculously, the kids never got it! So that is good.
Tomorrow, Mema, my MIL, is flying in.... so baby has another 24 hours to wait! Then.... only God knows.... Baby could be here any day now..... It is very exciting. I can not wait to hold that baby close to my heart, rock it to sleep and sing lullabies to it at night. I can not wait to introduce it to the kids. They have been so excited all along, some weeks more, and some less. They know what is coming.......
I think we are ready..... and I am blessed with an amazing family that I love to pieces!
