38 & 39 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #2

My baby girl is now estimated to be between 19.75 to 20 inches long and may weigh roughly 6.8lb to 7.25lb. This of course vary's from baby to baby and is an average so we'll have to wait to see how much she actually weighs and measures when she's born. 
She is continuing to build layers of fat and the placenta is still working hard to provide the important antibodies to help protect her when she's arrives into the world. Our daughter is now also considered full term and she's totally ready to be born. 

As I write this I'm 39 weeks and 2 days pregnant. This pregnancy has flown by but as we reach the final hurdle it's like we've hit the brakes and now it feels like I've been pregnant forever! I decided to write this double post a little earlier than planned this week as I have a feeling I won't be pregnant for much longer. Lets hope Mummy's intuition is correct and it's not just wishful thinking. I've had quite a few tell tale signs that labour may be imminent so I'm trying to remain focused that it won't be long now. As much as I love pregnancy I'm ready to trade in the none stop nausea, heartburn and aches and pains for our baby! I'm so ready to meet our baby girl now, so much so that it hurts!

See you next week? Maybe? Will there be a 40 week update or will the next post I write be our daughters birth announcement? I guess we will all have to wait and see!


  1. my daughter will be 29 weeks tomorrow so she is about 10 weeks after you. She moves round the corner from us tomorrow - we are soooo relieved cos things seemed to go wrong with the move and she finally exchanged monday to move tomorrow. Now at least when the bubby comes she will be close so I can help her with him - my first little grandchild - a little boy I am just soooo excited!!! Good luck with yours :)

  2. Wow this pregnancy has flown by :) exciting times.

  3. good luck, she will be a blessing

  4. I believe your due date is tomorrow 20/02/2017. So it shouldn't be too long now till you meet your daughter. Though I think you mentioned that you went past your due date with your first pregnancy. So maybe we all need to be patient for a little bit longer. Best Wishes to you and all the family.
