40 Weeks

I was supposed to check into the hospital today at 5:15pm but my Dr. called this morning and is having me come in in the morning at 5:30 to start the induction process. I am actually excited about this because I will be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. I am praying that Kennedy will make her arrival on her own or at least start the process today. Thank you for all of your prayers!

How your baby's growing:

It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. Her skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason your baby's noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured — it's normal and temporary.
