38 weeks

Had my doctor's appointment today and no news to report! I am not dilating yet. Boo.. Oh well. I guess baby boy Swanson has some more cooking to do! How fun would it be to have a firecracker baby this weekend though!! I am ready. I am so HOT, all I want to do is sit in the AC. I am also incredibly tired. This past weekend I think I slept more than I was awake and every day after work I don't have energy to make dinner and so we have been ordering out a lot. That definitely won't be able to continue once the baby is here. Too expensive! My sausage feet ache and Zach doesn't like to rub them because he says they are dirty haha.

Update from babycenter.com:

our baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long. She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her 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 she's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If she's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she'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 she'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.)
