36 almost 37 weeks!!

Two weeks from tomorrow- BABY #2 will be in my arms!! :)

Ruthie's room is finally done (full blog about that coming). And, now we're working on the nursery... there is a lot less to do there since it was once occupied by a beautiful little girl!! :)

Here's what Baby Center says about 36 weeks:
Your baby is gaining about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She's shedding most of the downy hair that covered her body, as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Next week, your baby will be considered full-term. Most likely she's in a head-down position, but if she isn't, your practitioner may suggest scheduling an external cephalic version, where she'll try to turn your baby by manipulating her from the outside of your belly.

By the way- Our precious baby is HEADS UP!! She turned heads down for a couple of weeks and must like being heads up because she's back there!! :)

A crenshaw melon?? Where do they come up with this stuff?

Good thing you are having a C-birth, with that little breech baby.
