37 Weeks: Full Term!


How far along? 37 Weeks...full term baby!
Baby Size: About 6.5 pounds and 19 inches long...the size of a wintermelon {yeah...not sure what that is either!}
Total weight gain: Looking like 25 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes and no.  It's been a fun game to see what still fits.  Wore a bikini for this first time this past weekend...oh yeah!
Stretch marks? Still in the clear...knock on wood!
Sleep: Ehhhh I'm getting up multiple times a night to change sides of go potty.  Plus it's getting HOT here so windows are open all night long.  Oy!
Best moment this week: Learning that I'm progressing along...60% effaced and a fingertip dilated!  Just hope he keeps on baking a little bit longer.  :)
Miss Anything? Being able to move without huffing and puffing...and not being puffy from the heat!
Movement: Yes, all the time and it's starting to almost hurt.  He's definitely trying to stay comfy but there's just not enough room in there!
Food cravings: Fresh fruit and veggies.  So excited that the Farmer's Market opens this week!  And mint chip ice cream.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing new.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: Still nothing of note.  Sometimes a little cramping, but nothing big.
Symptoms: Feeling hot and uncomfortable all the time.  I don't know how you mommies do it through the summer!  Tired, back and lower tummy aches/cramps.  All textbook stuff though!
Belly Button in or out? Halfie
Wedding rings on or off? on
Mood: Happy, but irritable.  Feeling tired and groggy and a little anxious!  But I really can't complain...it's all worth it, especially knowing he'll be here SO soon!!
Looking forward to: This is my last week of work before maternity leave, so I'm looking forward to getting things wrapped up so I don't have to worry {as much!} while I'm out  Also, just dyyying to finish the nursery...we ordered a map via Amazon and they sent the wrong one.  Darn it!  Hopefully we can get it fixed this week so I can officially show you the finished product soon!

  32. SO CLOSE! And it will be so much better once you're on maternity leave...a little extra time to sit and to get things done! (c;

  33. Woo hoo! Full term! What a great feeling. So glad to hear all is well and you're starting to progress. I didn't have any progress at any of my OB appointments, which was disheartening. I was so ready to meet our little guy, as I'm sure you are. The next few weeks are definitely the hardest. Especially with the heat! You're doing awesome!

  34. Next time I am pregnant I need some diet tips from you! I think I had gained 35 lbs by this point and then 37 total. You look so good! Full term means that baby boy is making his arrival soon!! I feel like your pregnancy has flown by (although I am sure you don't feel that way)!

    ReplyDelete
