Alright, I know there's a couple of us there....37 weeks, baby!!!!

Even though I know it's all arbitrary and there is no such thing as a "right" length of pregnancy and 37 weeks is not a magic number, I just feel a little lighter somehow...like I'm really in the home stretch and I'm actually going to have a baby soon!

Join up here when you hit "full term"!!!!!

I'm 37+4 (or 37+3 or 37+2 or 37+1 depending on which due date you go by - I had three or four of them given to me early on) and I can COMPLETELY understand the sentiment! At the same time though, it's kind of hard to believe that it's gone so fast.

I'm just kind of glad no one insists on going by my LMP and accepts my chart - I'd be in a different DDC! As it is I'm kind of straddling two.

37 weeks today!!!!

There is definately something to be said for hitting this point. I definately feel a sense of "wow, I've been pregnant for 37 whole weeks!....time flew!"....while at the same time it still seems like delivery may be so far away....If that makes any sense at all!

Today we are in the midst of a major winter storm (snow/ice/sleet so I am inviting the baby to stay at least another night in the womb!

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :

Wow, it's crazy that some of you are that close already. Of course I'll be one of the last (not due until the end) but it's fun to see people getting so close!

oooo me!! I'm 37 weeks + 3! I can't believe I'm here already! I know it's arbitrary, but I feel like now it could be any day. I try to keep reminding myself that it could still be a month away.

It makes me feel accomplished. like, wow, i've really made it THIS FAR! I also feel like I am in the "safe" zone, still not ready, but if things were to happen, I would feel okay about it.

5 more days for me, although I figure if I go into labor on Monday night, chances are that the baby won't come until Tuesday, so my mw's could still attend. That's the weight off of my shoulders---I'll no longer have to go to the hospital (or stay at home UC, which we're not planning on) and my mw's can attend. Wa-hoo! In reality the baby is going to bake a few more weeks, I'm sure, but it will certainly feel good to get there in a few days, where I won't have to worry about where we'll be birthing!

2 more days I will be 37!!

I just noticed it before coming to this board. I still don't feel ready - it still feels SO far away. But I did just decide on baby's first outfit and am washing all the clothes, changing table pad, etc. tonight.

I can't wait to join you guys. dd1 was born at 35 weeks so this part of pregnancy is always a bit stressful for me. Can't wait to hit 37 weeks!

I almost started a thread like this on tuesday then got sidetracked!

37+3. We had a celebration when we hit 36 cause DD was born early morning at 36 weeks and that milestone ment something to me, so even though I'm not Jewish I celebrated Hanakuh this year we bypassed DD's gestation the day it started and hit 37+1 the day it ended.

Woohoo! Now does anyone else feel like they are going to go to 42-44 weeks Because the end can't possibly be this close.

I do, but that's likely because I never went into labor with ds so even though I have a son I feel very much like a first time mother. It always leaves me wondering...when would I have gone into labor last time? I feel very much like it will be more like 41-42 weeks this time which is downright annoying because even though we've never given the ILs an exact due date - just "early January" they think it's "going to be any day now". Sheesh!

pampered - I'm in the same situation! I never got to labor last time either, so I'm clueless what the real thing feels like too! Our date is truly an EDD, we don't really know so we went with the latest guess, I've been measuring big, ctxing for weeks, but I still feel like it is never going to happen.

I'm 38 weeks tomorrow. I know it's kinda cheating to be in this DDC, but I'm a 3-time-over 41-weeker, so that puts this baby's likely birthing in January. Can't believe it's so close!
