HUGE Milestone: Full Term - 37 Weeks!

I can't believe I have made it to 37 weeks - Smyrna Baby is now full term! Even though my due date isn't for another 21 days, if he/she were to be born tonight, there should not be any survival issues and he/she shouldn't have any trouble surviving outside the womb. Wow. A huge milestone for this baby that we are both SO anxious to meet.

According to
Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.

So many thoughts running through my head right now - the biggest one being how I can't believe that at 37 weeks, I feel this great, am hardly emotional and am just plain excited! Smyrna Baby will literally be here before we know it!
