What to expect...

Wow- we've reached Week 40!



No, I'm not pregnant...
If you've kept up with me on Facebook, I've posted throughout 
my sister-in-law Stephanie's pregnancy, so much so, that I feel like I've gone through the pregnancy with her
 (as uncomfortable as she is right now, I bet she would beg to differ!)

But yes, Baby Samuel David Yarmosh 
(the first Yarmosh of our generation to carry on the Yarmosh name!)
is due this Tues, February 7th, 2012.

I've been waiting waiting waiting for him and he will finally grace the world with his presence next week. I am so excited to be an Aunt and kiss his sweet, precious little baby cheeks!

Since I am on a bit of a hiatus from F.B right now, 
I am going to post his final week of development here. :)

I can't wait to meet you Baby Sam!

Week 40 of Pregnancy

It's the official end of pregnancy — though the baby might not have gotten that memo. Hang in there!

40 weeks pregnant


Your Baby in Week 40 of Pregnancy

Congratulations! This week marks the official end of your pregnancy. Your baby probably weighs anywhere from six to nine pounds and measures between 19 and 22 inches (though tons of perfectly healthy babies are smaller or bigger). The bones in his skull haven’t fused yet — Mother Nature’s way of making it easier to get through the birth canal during labor and delivery. He now has enough fat under the skin to maintain his body temperature outside the womb (with a little help from those cute outfits and swaddling blankets that you’ve been stocking up on!). You (or actually the placenta) are still providing the antibodies he’ll need to fight off infections for the first six months of his life. And if you plan on breastfeeding, your milk will be giving him more antibodies that’ll boost his immune system.
