40 Weeks

"It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. His skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason your baby's noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured — it's normal and temporary."

When I first checked my pregnancy update it said "newborn." The assumption being that I must have delivered by now. Way to rub it in.

I have nothing to report. Nothing like labor going on over here. Jeff said it is kind of weird because I could go into labor at any moment. Which is true. When I go to bed I wonder if I will wake up during the night with contractions. Each morning I wonder if the day will end with a baby. I have an appointment tomorrow which I am hoping will shed some light on it.
