36 (and a half) weeks / 9 months pregnant

Welcome Friday!

This week baby girl is roughly 6 lb and 18″-19″ long. Most of her systems are mature and are ready for birth. However, the digestive system won’t be until after she’s here.

I recently had an ultrasound to make sure that everything was still on track, given that I have Gestational Diabetes. Thankfully everything looks great!

That said, my doctor is recommending that I be induced at 39 weeks. Although Remy and Wilder came naturally, their births were both early and quick. Remy was born in my 38th week after 6 hours of labour, and Wilder in my 39th after only 1 hour. Because we live an hour away from the hospital, I am actually relieved that I will most likely have an induction. I realize that it will be more painful, but at least we can plan for family to help us (watching the children and animals) and not have to give birth at home unassisted. So, instead of 3.5 weeks until she is here, it will hopefully only be 2.5 weeks!

Here is my previous 36 week update.
