36 weeks pregnant

I am almost there. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, so we’ll see what he says. I think I will be taken off my bedrest and driving restriction and drugs. This is the final stretch now.

From Babycenter:

Your baby is gaining about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds and is a little less than 19 inches long. She’s shedding most of the downy hair that covered her body, as well as the vernix caseosa. At the end of this week, your baby will be considered full-term. (Babies born between 37 and 42 weeks are considered full-term.) Most likely she’s in a head-down position by now, which is optimal for a smooth delivery, but if she isn’t head-down next week, your provider may suggest scheduling an external cephalic version, where your practitioner will try to turn your baby by pushing on the outside of your belly.
