38 Weeks!!!

We are now at 38 weeks! Dax must be really comfortable in my belly, because we have made no progress...I am still 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. We did the ultrasound, and he is showing to be approximately 7 lbs. 2 oz. Dr. Christine scheduled me in to be induced on Monday, May 17, which is only 4 days before his due date, because we don't want him to get too big for me to deliver! Hopefully he'll come out on his own before then, though!!! Other than that, everything is going great! This has been such a wonderful pregnancy, but we cannot wait to meet our little boy! Here is what is going on in my belly this week, besides Dax relaxing and not wanting to come out:)

Your baby has really plumped up. He weighs about 6.8 pounds and He's over 19 1/2 inches long. He has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If he's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If he's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time he's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after he's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)
