Officially Full Term!

Today is the day that anything could happen at any time. Yes, I am finally FULL TERM at 37 weeks! So, baby Robbins has the green light to just grace us with his presence at his whim. Of course we would still like for him to make it to May 12th, but it is up to him to decide when he is ready. Last week with the midwife, she indicated I was still measuring a little small or right on for the week I should be. Though this was a concern in my mind, she basically just told me that she didn't expect me to have big babies and so she wasn't concerned at all. So, that leads us to the question that I will pose my readers. Baby Robbins stats! I thought of having a poll for the stats, but there are too many elements to choose from, so I am leaving it up to just comments. How big will Baby Robbins be??

Here is some family info to help your answers:
Robby was 6lbs 10oz when he was born and 19.5 inches long.
I was born approx. a month early at 5lbs 6oz and 18 inches long.
Our sweet boy, Rylen, was born 4 days early at 5lbs 10oz and 18.5 inches long.

So, it does seem that we don't exactly follow the big baby trend, but who knows! Your guess is as good as mine, though small is always nice! HA!

Baby Robbins:
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 three weeks away.

Your baby 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. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.
