Sweet Baby 38 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

Sweet Baby is now as long as a Leek!      
I really can’t believe that we’re almost done being pregnant – next it’s parents!  I finished packing up her bag for the hospital.  I haven’t decided which outfit so we have 3 to choose from when the day comes!  I still haven’t packed up a bag for me.. I know I should be prepared!!  I set aside a 2 outfits for me, and some other things.  Just have to get it all ready, because soon Mikaylee will be asking to come out!!  Ahh, I can’t wait
38 weeks pregnant
About our baby: Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she’s over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you’ll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her 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 she’s born with brown eyes, they’ll likely stay brown. If she’s born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she’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 she’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.) (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
