36 Weeks

9 months! The home stretch!! C-Section is in exactly 3 weeks and 3 days. To date, my longest pregnancy is 36 weeks and 1 day, so if I’m still pregnant on Monday, this will be a record. Since this baby is also on track to be my smallest, I have no indication that she is going to arrive anytime soon. I had some contractions off and on yesterday, but I think it was her moving even farther down into position because she feels a whole lot lower than she did even two days ago.

your baby at 36 weeks
  • She’s getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her own.
  • Her skin is getting smooth and soft and her gums are rigid.
  • Her liver and kidneys are in working order.
  • Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too.

We are all ready if she decides to arrive now. The car seat has been purchased, diaper bag and mom’s bag are packed and now it’s just a waiting game. I have an OB appointment Monday morning, two weeks ago I had to started to efface, but no dilation, so we’ll see if anything has happened over the last couple of weeks.

From 6 weeks to 36 weeks. The body is amazing.
