What a relief to get to week 38. Being someone that has experienced infertility, loss and high risk pregnancy this is an important week.

Our little "Brick" is right around 7 pounds and 20 inches long. He or she is about the size of a bowling pin and just about ready to meet us on the outside!

The best news is that the vast majority of the organs are mature and fully functioning. Brick is continuing to add fat and fine-tune his/her brain and nervous system.

I'm hoping to keep this little one cooking for another week or so, but I can definitely tell my body is preparing for his or her entrance. I am having increased contractions, aching, nausea is back, my body is changing.

Our neighbor, old nanny (who is now family to us) and my sister are all on standby in case I go into labor unexpectedly. How blessed are we to have such wonderful people in our lives? And I say labor unexpectedly because normally I am induced shortly before my due date. This has to do with other health issues and so on.

Either way becuase we are now in the waiting period and I have had signs of early labor I am packing my hospital bag just in case.
Here's my HOSPITAL BAG CHECKLIST:

WHAT YOU DON’T NEED:
Diapers, wipes, pads, mesh undies (aka the best things ever, haha) Your hospital will supply it all, so don’t worry about bringing that stuff.
