When will it truly be Baby Time, you ask? Perhaps tomorrow!

Yes, it's only Week 38, but given the size of the already big baby and Kerry's continual blood pressure concerns, the time may be right for Jack to arrive. That means the doctor may induce Kerry when she and Dan visit the hospital once again, so when they return home, they may be parents! In the meantime, Dan has been stressing over the final chores, but the truth is that the house is ready. Are Kerry and Dan?

Baby Size Update: over 20 inches long, weighing over 8 pounds.
According to BabyCenter, the average baby is 19 to 20 inches long and about 7 pounds.

Listen to Baby Time: Week 37
Listen to this Podcast

As Week 37 arrives, we are blessed to know that Kerry's pregnancy has officially reached full term, meaning that if born today, baby Jack would have a great chance at making it on his own.

However, there was concern this week as Kerry's blood pressure began to increase. Three separate visits to the hospital were necessary, and officials were concerned about the risks of preeclampsia, but luckily, Kerry and Jack are both in excellent health.

It is with a heavy heart that we podcast tonight. Just when a pregnancy is nearing its critical conclusion, you hope to keep the mother-to-be as calm as can be. However... After a long illness, Kerry's father Warren passed away today. The entire family was already together watching over him. Tonight, we know he is watching over us.

Rest in peace, Dad.
