37 Weeks, December 25th

from babycenter.com...

Congratulations — your baby is full term! This means that if your baby arrives now, his lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still three weeks away.Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.

How uncomfortable does that look? Yeah, well it pretty much is! I've been spending a good part of each day laying on my left side. As much as I can at least. I get really bored on bed rest and the list of things to do keeps popping into my head. I know anything that doesn't get done in the next five days probably won't get done for a very long time. They really aren't important things... stuff like cleaning out the refrigerator and wiping down the bases boards in the half bathroom. And I know in five days they will be the furthest things from my mind, but right now they are nagging me.
