The Two Most Beautiful Words

Full. Term.

By the time you are 38 weeks pregnant, your baby is considered "full term." In other words, if your baby were born today, he or she would be considered a full-grown baby. At week 38 of your pregnancy, your baby is approximately 19 to 21 inches long from head to toe and can weigh nearly 7 pounds.

Just because I like to say it so very much: Today, at 38 weeks pregnant, Little Man is considered. . . Full. Term.

Thank God. What a miracle.

Yay! I can remember when I'd read your Sunday posts listing all the reasons why Little Man would stick around. And stick around he has! Good luck in the next few days and weeks!

Congrats on a very important day! My sons were born 2 months prematurely and that experience has taught me the precious value of each and every day in the womb. Yeah for Little Man and for you!!! Full term indeed!
