37 Weeks- Full Term!

As of now, Wyatt is no longer considered premature or preterm! It feels so good to know we've reached this point and if he were to be born now, his lungs would likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. But I'm still hoping he'll wait a bit longer. :) It's still so strange sometimes to look at my belly and know there's a baby curled up in there. I try to picture what position he's smooshed himself into, but I really can't. All I know is his head is down and his bottom is on top. Other than that, I'm purely guessing what small parts I feel gliding along.

Although I'd like Wyatt to stay put for a little bit longer, I do finally feel like I'm prepared (for the most part) for his arrival. At least in terms of physical items. We've pretty much gotten everything rounded up that we plan on taking with us to the hospital:

Let's see...Overnight bag? Check. Boppy pillow? Check. Diaper bag? Check. Video camera? Check. Feeling prepared to bring home a baby whom we will raise for the next 18(+) years, hopefully without driving him crazy or completely losing our minds in the process? Let me get back to you on that...;)

Here's the latest belly pic:

We’re getting very excited for Wyatt to join our family!



  1. YAY! 37 weeks is a huge milestone.

    We just picked up my "hospital outfit" today which was something I was worried about for awhile. I have no clue what my body is going to be like...let alone my change in chest size.

    Packing is tough, so kudos to you for being so ready!

  2. LOL! I'm feeling the same way! I feel like I'm so ready, but I also feel unprepared! It's such a mix of emotions at this point. I'm so glad you have made it to 37 weeks. I know what a relief that is. I hope he hangs on a few more weeks too, but at least he is healthy and ready for the outside world at this point. Good luck with the next few weeks! I know what a crazy roller coaster they can be, as I'm totally experiencing that now! I just can't wait for her to come out so I can stop all this anticipation anxiety!

  3. Oh my word!!! You are getting so close!! I'm glad you have things all packed up. I'm sure that feels like a relief being ready to go. I'm praying for you daily!!! Lots of love!
