38 weeks…almost time

Well, I’ve been hanging out in mom’s womb now for 38 weeks–mom says that I am now full term and could really make my appearance at any time. I wouldn’t say that I’m uncomfortable in here yet, things sure are starting to get tight. Every time I kick or move around, I know that mom can feel it–sometimes I can even feel her pushing back! And even though I’m still quite comfortable, I know that mom sure isn’t feeling that way. She says that she’s starting to get really uncomfortable–especially since my feet are up in her ribs!

Since I’m full term now, I’m fully developed and ready to see the world…but my brain is still developing at a rapid pace. Mom has been good about eating lots of what she calls “brain foods” to help the development along. Although she’s trying to eat healthy, it’s hard for her to eat much at all since her stomach (like her bladder) is so squished by me. She also like her treats though…especially ice-cream! She keeps trying to convince dad that the ice-cream is good for me. I don’t think he’s buying it though!

Mom is anxiously waiting my arrival and keeps saying that she is done with being pregnant. I know that because I’ve grown so much lately, I’ve been making her even more tired and putting more strain on her back. But, dad keeps saying that I should hang out in here for a while longer…who should I listen to? Mom or dad? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
