Happy Due Date To Me! 40 Weeks!


This is it! I'm officially 40 weeks, which means today is my due date! I know now that having a "due date" doesn't actually mean much as far as whether the baby will actually come on this day or not. It's just nice to hit yet another milestone!! 

The doctors will not be letting me go further than 41 and a half weeks so if she doesn't come before then they will induce me. I don't really think that will be necessary though. I'm betting she will come sometime this week. It's hard to imagine actually having a daughter but we are so excited!

According to babycenter.com, most babies at 40 weeks gestation weigh about 7 1/2 lbs and are about 20 inches long. I have to admit that the longer she is in there, the more worried I become about how big she will be!

It was nice to get out with the family last night and enjoy dinner together. Olive Garden is so delicious! I got the eggplant, just like I had been planning on. Yum! 

After dinner, we watched Thor with Michaels brother Tyler and his wife Sarah. I think it's pretty awesome how they have been making all these Marvel movies and connecting them so that they can combine the characters and their stories into the new movie Avengers. If you haven't been watching Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and the rest of those movies you really should!
