How Far Along: 38 weeks
Size of baby:
Your baby has really plumped up. He weighs about 6.8 pounds and she’s over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). credit
What’s baby doing: He has a firm grasp, which you’ll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.Wondering what color your baby’s eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If he’s born with brown eyes, they’ll likely stay brown. If he’s born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time he’s 9 months old. That’s because a child’s irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after he’s born, but they usually won’t get “lighter” or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.) credit
Whats up with Mommy: We are just waiting for his pending arrival…he has certainly kept us waiting!

Gender: all boy! although daddy is still insistent that its a girl
Baby’s Heart Rate: upper 140′s
Movement: definatly slowed but I can really feel his hiccups alot these days

Glyburide has helped even out my sugars for the most part, although I did get a really low number on Sunday.
