Second Pregnancy: Week 39

The Complete Illustrated Pregnancy Companion by Robin Elise Weiss states that, "Baby is settled into your pelvis and preparing for birth. Not every baby us perfectly ready at the 37 week mark, which is why there is a range given for due dates. The last to mature on babies is their lungs. In other news, your baby's weight gain has slowed considerably. Some babies will gain a few ounces here or there but the weight gain has pretty much stopped. On average, babies, babies weigh seven and a half pounds (3.4 kg) by this point and measures twenty inches (52 cm) long."
We had 24 June 2013 marked on our calendars as the estimated due date, and a weekly check up was scheduled for 19 June 2013 (Wednesday) at 2.45 pm.
As excited as we were to see what Bean was up to, we did not make it to the intended appointment.
For an extremely good reason, masyaAllah!
Hint: Birth story coming up next!
