37 Weeks

September 27, 2012

Pregnancy Stats:
How Far Along: 37 weeks

Size of baby: over 6 lbs and 19 inches long, like a stalk of swiss chard, hmm...
and the size of a watermelon...yikes!
Total Weight Gain: 15 pounds so far...weigh in at the dr in the am though.

Gender: It's a GIRL!!!
Movement: She moves so much, I thought the baby's movement was supposed to slow down a little, but hers...not so much.  She's a fiesty little thing already!  She is still hanging out under my right rib cage....ouch!  Hoping she comes soon, I am ready to meet this little monkey and my ribs are ready to have their space back ;)
Sleep:  I can't remember what it was like to sleep well...oh well!  I go to the bathroom 3-4 times per night and roll back and forth 10 times a night.  I am getting prepared for having a baby wake me up at all hours of the night, but I can't wait till its actually my baby waking me up!
What I miss: A good nights sleep, being able to move without pain, running/exercising. 
Cravings: Cold things and chocolate, nothing new.
Symptoms: Pain/pressure/fatigue/braxton hicks contractions...However, nothing major to complain about still. I've been blessed this pregnancy.  Thank you God!
Maternity Clothes: Yep!  Ive also stolen some of my brothers shirts and apparently my dads hoody.  Whatever works, right? ;)  I am still so greatful that I am able to wear scrubs to work! And so thankful my husband really doesn't care what I wear or look like for that matter.
Best Moment this week: Making it to full term!  You can come anytime now baby girl!  We are so ready to meet you.
