Week 37… He’s full term :o)

30Oct08

Yup, it’s official, if our baby was born anytime after today, he would no longer be a preemie.

This means that Little Moon’s lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though he probably won’t be arriving for another three weeks.

Baby, fetus at 37 weeks - BabyCenter
Little Moon probably weighs about 6 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel.  
At our sonogram last Friday, Jerod, Abby (Jerod’s cousin), and I got to see that Little Moon has hair on his head! He was still in the breech position (not head down).  He still is smaller and Sal, the sonogram lady, said that he still could reposition.

Little Moon is the length of a Swiss Chard!
