37 weeks


I get so behind on posting these as they "should" be posted every Sunday or Monday. Oh well!


How far along are you?
37 weeks...holy cow, I'm full term!

How big is Baby?
He's the size of a wintermelon (never heard of it) - He's gaining about an 1/2 ounce per day - He weighs anywhere between 6.2 and 9.2 lbs. That's a pretty big range, but that's what The Bump tells me. I'm guessing he's in the 7 lb. range at this point.

Weight Gain?
32 lbs.

 Gender?
a boy!

Maternity Clothes?
Same answer as always...tired of wearing the same thing over and over. (Especially when I'm starting to outgrow some maternity items at this point!) He needs to hurry and come out because I can't afford to start a Fall maternity wardrobe!!

Stretch Marks?
Yes :( Sadly I've gotten some on the bottom of my stomach. I can't see them when looking down, but I can see them in the mirror.

 Sleep?
Still not sleeping well. It's so hard to roll over or change positions.

Symptoms?
I've started getting nausea off and on again for some reason - Dizziness - low back pain/cramping

Movement?
He stretches out a lot and I seem to always be able to find a foot sticking out on the side of my belly

Food Cravings/Aversions?
No cravings. Nothing ever sounds good to me and I can't eat as much as I could 5 weeks ago. I get full much quicker now.

Labor Signs?
I don't know...maybe? With every "new" ache/pain I feel I wonder, "Is this it?? Is my water about to break?" Haha - I've been having more cramps and back cramps lately and I just feel different sometimes.

Belly Button in or out?
Basically out

What I miss?
Laying on my stomach
NOT having restless legs every single night

What I am looking forward to?
Having this baby!!
We are so close to getting the nursery done

Best moment of the week?
We finished the accent wall in Crew's room and I can't wait for everyone to see it! It's definitely my favorite part of the nursery.
Being full term!

Daddy’s feeling?
"It's hard to believe that Crew could come any minute now! It's been such a great adventure so far and I can't wait for the adventure to be even better. Every day is filled with excitement as we anxiously await his arrival. We are definitely ready to hold our little Crew!"

I’m feeling?
Tired and achy. I am so ready for him to be here and wonder every day when it will happen. I'm trying to not get my hopes up that he could come early, but it is always in the back of my mind. Today, September 20, was actually our original due date before it got moved back to October 6. Maybe he'll surprise us!

Doctor’s report?
As of my appointment today I am a little over 60% effaced and still not dilated. My doctor says he doesn't want me going past my due date so at least I know there is a maximum of two weeks left. But I'm still hoping he decides to come on his own...before his due date!

Congrats on making it full term! You will be so excited to meet him and hold him. I hope he comes easily and quickly for you. Any day still feels so far away but it will be over before you know it and you will see your gift from God looking up at you.

So exciting!! I feel your pain on the belly stretch marks and rolling over. I swear that's the reason for the stretch marks! All that pulling and turning to get out of bed!! Can't wait for baby!
