Week 37

March 16, 2015

How Far Along: FULL TERM!!! 37 weeks and 1 day

Weight Gain/Loss: I’m sitting just under 60 pounds of weight gain and I feel every single extra pound.

Sleep: Getting up to pee on an average of 4 times a night. Last night, it was every 1.5 hour, pretty much on the dot.

Best Moment This Week: Last Monday we got to see our Little Guy again and learn more about his size… getting so excited!

Movement: Still lots of movement going on… Love feeling my healthy baby boy!

Food Cravings/Aversions: Still loving all the food!

What I Miss: Wearing my own shoes! I now have only one pair that fits, and they’re technically my moms! Depressing!

Stretch Marks: Still none

Belly Button: flat

Wedding Rings: I’m still able to wear the ring my grandmother gave me and they’re not snug so yay!

Mood: Had a small break down the other day. I think it’s just par for the course but the very end of pregnancy.

Labor Signs: Still none 🙁

Milestones: I’m now full term!!! Little Guy can come any day now!!!!

Upcoming Appointments/Events: Today was my 37 weeks appointment, next week will be my 38, and so on and so forth.

What I look forward to: Holding my baby boy in my arms!

Weekly Wisdom: Relax as much as you can during your last month or so before your due date. My lower extremities swelling is at an all time high but I keep going and going… by the end of the day I am actual pain. Once it gets this bad, compression hose hardly help.
