Sweet Baby is the size of a Small Pumpkin!
Oh, hello!  Yes, I am still pregnant!  It seems like Mikaylee is making sure she is a well done Sweet Baby!     We are nearing the end and I just cannot wait to meet her already.  I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to see if we’re ready!!  If not the latest I can go is the 27th, as my DR’s office doesn’t allow you to go beyond 41 weeks.   I’m hoping she’s ready tomorrow!  We’re ready for you Sweet Baby!!

About our baby:  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.  (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
