With each day of pregnancy, the heart & home find room to grow & expand for the coming baby. As our bodies grow (and sometimes partners' too!) it helps to remember the important work that is being done. Those last few weeks (& for some the last few months) are tough to sit tight, but baby is using every day for more brain and lung development-particularly in the last weeks of pregnancy. Even so, it is natural to start thinking...I want this baby out now...but not really because I'm not ready for a newborn...but my back & swollen feet! What a dilemma! What we know through current research and recommendations from both the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the World Health Organization (WHO) is that babies are worth the wait! Unless medically indicated, sticking with it during the uncomfortable days is best for mom & baby. I encourage you to check it out by using the links attached for further info.
Best wishes for a Happy "Birth" Day!!!
