Today marks 37 weeks gestation, so our Baby Girl is technically considered "full term" now! Of course, we want her to stay put for a few more weeks to maximize her development time, but it still feels really good to know that we've made it this far.
By this point, she probably weighs over 6 pounds. Sounds big, right? And yet, while doing more laundry today, I just had to hold up the tiny little mittens for my husband and ask him how anyone could ever be that small. He and I are both on the taller side, and yet I feel like I'm still relatively "trim" for being this far along, so I really wonder how big (weight and length) she will be when she makes her debut.
I still feel great--though I admit that I'm a little on the warm side, a little on the tired side, and it takes a little more effort to get up off the floor, off the couch, out of bed, out of the car--you name it. But I know just how blessed I am that God has entrusted me with this Baby Girl, so I just want to cherish every single moment of this pregnancy.
Today's blessing is this three-day holiday. I was fairly productive all weekend, and it felt really good to know that I had three days in which to complete my various weekend chores. Today's project was making a lasagna for tonight, and another one to go in the freezer for after our Baby Girl arrives. I also slept well last night, and took a nap on both Sunday and today. Granted, I've also been working on revising our training manual for work, but at least I can do so with my feet up in front of the tv. And now, I get to cap off the weekend with a big College Football game!
