37 weeks pregnant!

37 weeks pregnant. I’m actually almost 38 weeks smile emoticon
Opening and cleansing continues. I am looking forward to the birth. The baby is healthy and the head is down. I feel strong, everything in my body is doing what it is supposed to be doing at this time. I have a feeling this is going to be a quick labor. I have continued working on breathing meditation and helpful yoga.
I feel blessed to have such a wonderful labor team. I never imagined meeting so many amazing people in Austin that are so incredibly loving and supportive. They are looking forward to the baby as much as I am and that is beautiful to me. There are also friends traveling here to see the birth of this little Angel. I feel completely surrounded by unconditional love and support.
I remember posting a while ago my fear of having and raising this baby on my own. If only I had known what was ahead. I now feel so so so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community of people and friends.

On average, at this time, a baby weighs about 6.8 pounds (3100g) and measures about 14 inches (35cm) from crown to rump and 21 inches (47cm) total in length.

Your baby is still growing and gaining weight. Your baby may gain as much as 1 ounce (28g) a day at this point.

Your baby has been building up waste in his intestines for the past few weeks. Called meconium, this waste is greenish-black and is made up of material from blood cell break down, shedded cells from the lining of the intestine, skin cells and lanugo shed into the amniotic fluid and swallowed, as well as other sources. Meconium is the first waste your baby passes and the first diapers that you change will probably be comprised of this greenish-black, tar-like substance. There is also a chance that your baby will excrete meconium before delivery and have some covering his body.
