39 Weeks

I can't believe this week is here! I know the reality is that I could go beyond my due date but we are so close to holding our baby girl and we are blessed! Today I have plans to walk, mop, clean up the house a bit, and present in New Braunfels. I am glad that we have a full week of presentations scheduled so that I can keep myself busy with work and my mind on our team. Don't worry. My hospital bag is packed and will be with me at all times. Tomorrow I will post my 39 week picture but for now I will leave you with how our little one is growing this week:

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control her body temperature after birth, but it's likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of her skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
