December 5, Week 37: Only 3 more weeks and I will have my birthday. I’m filling out now–absorbing about a gallon of amniotic fluid each day. My cheeks have fat and muscle in them. I’m a little plump. I weigh 6 pounds and am 20 inches tall. I’m ready for a picture, Mom.
December 11, Week 38: Mom, better pack those bags. Although, I think I will be born right on time. I’ve stepped up practicing my breathing. My lungs are just about ready. It’s only a matter of a few days, and they’ll be fine. And, Mom, don’t forget the camera.
December 19, Week 39: It’s really crowded in here and it’s very hard for me to move. Even the umbilical cord is 20 inches long and about 1/2 inch thick. However, I’m moving down, Mom. I am so ready! I bet you are, too. I know you must be tired of going to the bathroom every two minutes.
