Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size of a crenshaw melon, about 18 1/2 inches long and should be about 6lbs
Movement: Movements were smaller this week, but I feel her a lot more when standing and especially when sitting up in a chair.
Worst moment of the week: The cerclage removal wasn't so fun but it was short and sweet!
Am I really turning 37 weeks? Is this seriously happening? I couldn't be more grateful and feel more blessed. I don't even know how to set goals anymore! I've reached all the short term victories I've set and feel awesome about that.
My Ob has mentioned from the beginning that she would induce me at 39 weeks, because of my gestational diabetes. I'm a little bummed because my sugars have been great, and the baby is measuring normally. But I trust that she knows best, so whatever will be will be. So I suppose my next goal is to go into labor naturally and not be induced. I can't believe I'm even writing that, to tell you the truth!
It's really mind boggling to feel like its "ok" for baby to show up at any time. Truly amazing!
