week 37 - birth: watermelon

At week 37, your pregnancy is considered full term, meaning baby is likely to thrive after birth. Baby spends these last weeks in preparation for the outside world… meaning careful refinement of the blink, suck, inhale and exhale. Meconium, which you’ll probably find in the first diaper, is accumulating in the intestines. If (okay, as) you worry about giving birth, consider what it’s like for the little one. During the journey out of your womb, baby will produce more stress hormones than any other time in life.

Just remember, your watermelon is going to be about 20 inches long and much more narrow than that melon up there. :-) Sorry, but I was walking by a watermelon the other day and thought "oh man, that's just mean to make mamas imagine that!" LOL Better to imagine a few grapefruits in a row. ;-)
