37 Weeks Today!


It's official...I now have a watermelon in my stomach!!! What's even more exciting is Chloe is now 
"full-term", meaning she would survive on her own if she was born today!

Here is her status for this week:
t week 37, your pregnancy is considered full term, meaning baby is likely to thrive after birth. Baby spends these last weeks in preparation for the outside world… meaning careful refinement of the blink, suck, inhale and exhale. Meconium, which you’ll probably find in the first diaper, is accumulating in the intestines. If (okay, as) you worry about giving birth, consider what it’s like for the little one. During the journey out of your womb, baby will produce more stress hormones than any other time in life.

Chloe -I'm sorry to learn that the labour process will be the most stressful time of your life, but at least we'll be going through it together!! 
Love Mom.

I hope you and your baby the best of everything. Safe delivery for you too. Good luck and God bless! In case you might put up a business in the future it would be nice to know that there are available free Canadian government grants .
