37 weeks

3 weeks until due date... 1.5 weeks until Hanne & Tommy touch down again in the US.

From BabyCenter:
Congratulations! Your baby is full-term! This means that if your baby arrives now, her lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still three weeks away. She weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long.

Braxton-Hicks contractions woke me up at 4 am this morning. Sanna seems to be on a 2-1/2 hour sleep/wake schedule (or maybe that's just my bladder?!) throughout the night. This morning, the contractions were enough to surprise me, but definitely not the real thing. It did not stop me from wondering, however, how quickly the time will be here!

...and how far we've come!
