Well, I've made it another week, reaching the 38 week mark! I'm feeling pretty tired as of late and have had some major queasiness set in. Needless to say, I am good and ready for Cooper to make his debut!
Onto the update from BabyCenter.com-
"Your baby has really plumped up. He weighs about 6.8 pounds and he's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). He has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb. Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If he's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If he's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time he's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after he's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)"
We have our doctor's appointment on Wednesday afternoon where the doctor is going to set an induction date. Seeing as he already weighs at least 8 pounds (much more than this weeks update states), I definitely see why the doctors want to get him out of here!
I am so ready to hold his tiny little hand and gaze into his precious little eyes. Come on our Cooper! Mommy, Daddy, and many others sure are ready to meet you!
