Peanut at 40 weeks???
How your baby's growing: It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs in at a little over 7 pounds and is about 20 inches long. Your baby will continue to grow with every passing day (her nails and hair will continue to get longer, too). Your baby's skull bones are still separated and they'll stay that way to allow the bones to compress enough to fit through the birth canal during labor (you'll notice soft spots or "fontanels" on your baby's head for a year or more after birth).
So today WAS our little Peanut's due date, and at the time of this post, she has yet to make her appearance! C'mon now little one, the weather has been beautiful this past weekend, what are you waiting for? Obviously Enz & I are still anxiously awaiting her arrival, and we do have another appointment tomorrow. Hopefully the doctor will help all of us out and we can determine exactly when we do expect to have her. Everyone seems to be just as anxious as we are, so please be patient! Just remember, she is half filipino!
That being said, special Congratulations to Nancy & Anthony on the birth of their baby daughter Brianna Isabella! Enz got a message today that Nancy had the baby! We can't wait to see you guys & meet the little one! Glad everything turned out well! Maybe our little peanut will be born the day Brianna was scheduled to be born this week? That would prove to be a strange turn of events now wouldn't it?!
