baby: 37 weeks

IMG_1686.JPG

How far along? 37 weeks aka baby is considered FULL-TERM!!

Baby’s size? A winter melon (never heard of it in all honesty!) and over 6lbs now. Thaaaaat's why I was having the back pain earlier this week!

Total weight gain/loss: Assuming mid-20s, but no idea.

Maternity clothes? Actually scored a bunch from my sis-in-law a few days ago, which is kinda good because I don't think I'll make it with my regular clothes anymore in these last few weeks!

Stretch marks? Well...I've lost all sight on the downside of my baby bump, so I really couldn't tell ya!

Sleep: Is officially out the window. I wake up at least 2 times in the night...NBD. I even got up one time this week and peed three times. I thought, you have got to be kidding me!

Best moment this week: My mom and I officially picked up the crib and change table on Thursday. We also got an organic mattress for the crib, which was high on my priority list!! Can't wait until everything is assembled!

Miss Anything? Yet again, running...shocker. I miss a full night's sleep, as well.

Movement: Tons, and even some during the nights this past week. I thought the baby was pretty good at the not moving part at night, but it was rebellious this week!

Food cravings: Not much. But I'm a huge pomegranate lover, so I'm happy they're back in season. (You can seriously win my heart over if you just bring me a pomegranate...I promise!)

Anything making you queasy or sick: Just when there's too much pressure on my stomach (ie: by wearing tight clothing that is restricting and not designed for this big belly), and when I lie on my back for too long.

Gender: Since we put our 'guess the baby!' site out there, I really had no clue. Oh wait, I still don't :P.

Labor Signs: None, and I don't think I've had any Braxton Hicks lately either. I hope that isn't a sign that this baby is coming late, or I swear I will try to start running again. Someway or somehow!

Symptoms: Just being sleeeepy (aka: because of lack of sleep) and good ol' pelvis pain, especially when I've been sitting for long periods of time, which is so opposite of when it first started happening, due to too much running.

Belly Button in or out? I think this part of the body has to be remained...to like: belly flatton.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but not gonna lie, a little stressed. Mostly due to school and making sure we have everything we need for when the baby comes. Getting the crib to the house was a big step in relieving some of that stress!

Looking forward to: Having my baby shower with Tyler's family TODAY, when the crib's assembled, and just getting everything in place for this little...scratch that...BIG baby!

(Please excuse my horrible hair. I had been working on assignments all day and clearly playing with my hair took priority to completing assignments. Needless to say, I need to shower asap.)
