37 Weeks Pregnant

How far along: 37 weeks exactly- We are officially FULL TERM!!!!  My app says that you are 6.5 pounds now and 19-22 inches long.

Total weight gain: +35 lbs (and feeling HUGE!!)

Maternity clothes: every day- I feel so uncomfortable, the best moment of my life these days is coming home from work and putting on Aaron’s old t-shirt and sweats 😉

Mood: SO excited!  The due date is exactly 3 weeks away- I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy went.

Sleep: It’s getting a little tough to get comfortable at night but it’s nothing a mountain of pillows can’t fix.

Best moment of this week: We went to the doctor yesterday- We heard a healthy heartbeat and the baby is measuring right where he should be.  My blood pressure looks great and the baby turned and is facing downward!  A great sign 🙂  I’m 0.5 cm dilated which is a hint the process has started but really doesn’t tell us much of anything.  I would prefer for him to stay safe and sounds for just a couple more weeks- my next appointment is in a week so we will see if there is any progress.

Miss anything: Not feeling like a whale 😉

Movement: He’s definitely still moving, but not as crazy as he was before.  I asked the doctor about this and she said it’s just because he’s starting to run out of room and there is nothing to worry about.  Most of his movements feel very uncomfortable for me but I still like to feel them to know that everything is okay.

Food cravings:  I love fruit lately- but it’s starting to warm up and I think that makes me want fresh healthy foods.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, not at all!

Have you started to show yet: For sure!  I forgot to take pictures but I will try to get some this weekend for the next update.

Gender: a BOY!!!

Labor signs: yes!  I’ve been getting braxton hicks contractions every once in a while, but they are not very intense.

Belly button in or out: in.

Wedding rings on or off: on.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!  SO excited for the little man to join our family!

Looking forward to: Evi’s arrival!!  I will be packing my hospital bags this weekend- we are ready to go!

Other news/stories:  This past weekend I had a surprise party for Aaron’s birthday.  He turns 30 only two days before our due date and I didn’t want him to miss out on a fun night out.  We drove up to Cleveland and all his friends met us out for drinks and dinner.  It was a great night and I’m so happy we got to celebrate together.  Aaron’s friends are the BEST and I always have so much fun when we spend time with them 🙂
