37 Weeks

Congratulations-Your baby is full-term! This means that if your baby arrives now, his lungs should be fully mature and ready to adjust to life outside the womb, even though your due date is still 3 weeks away.

Your baby weights 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel. Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your babies hair is not the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blondes or red-heads, or fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.
