37 Weeks Pregnant

Jess is officially "full term" now. At 37 weeks, the baby's lungs are fully developed and he could safely arrive anytime now. Jess is having trouble with heartburn and getting comfortable, as well as some trouble sleeping at night, but over all she has been feeling great! Her doctors appointments are going well and they say baby Aiden is measuring normal for his due date on Jan. 1, 2010. They have told Jess to watch her weight these last few weeks, but she has only gained about 25lb so far during her pregnancy. Some people have told us that Jess may deliver earlier than New Years, and Jess certainly hopes so. But we will just have to wait and be surprised! :) Our families plan to visit after the baby is arrives. Jess' parents will probably be here first for a few days and Jon's parents will be coming up to visit at the end of January.

"...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..."

Stay tuned- we'll be sure to keep you posted on the latest baby news!
