I Can Be Done Now

When I found out about this unexpected arrival on the 10th of April, I believed that this pregnancy would feel shorter. I've always known I was pregnant from week 3 on, so not knowing until week 6 would make a pregnancy go by faster wouldn't it?

I am here to tell you that it doesn't. No matter how long the beginning, the end drags. I grew 4 cm in the 16 days between my last two OB appointments. Based on, probably faulty logic, I am guessing the baby weighs between 5.5 and 6 lbs right now. Right now.

And I'm only 35 weeks. I still have 4 more weeks to go. Notice, please, that I'm delivering a week early.

Shall I take guesses on how big he'll really be?

The last couple of weeks is the hardest! And being pregnant during the eating holidays doesn't help you feel better about gaining weight. I hope that your baby comes at least a week early. That would be a great Christmas present for you! Hang in there! I'm guessing...8 pounds! I think that there should be a law that says, if it's close to your due date and the baby is close to 8 pounds, take it early. It's a very nice thing to do for the mom!

I agree!!! 8 lbs is plenty big.

I agree, the end always drags. Good luck to you!
