37 Weeks


Munchkin is the size of a Winter Melon!
37 weeks ~ 9th month ~ 3rd trimester

Weight Gain: Way too much… Swelling and extra fluid are a &$*#&!

Sleep: Sitting up… Just sitting up…

Miss Anything?: Not being pregnant. I am at that point where I am ready to meet her and have my body back. There are so many things I worry about towards the end it’s hard to enjoy those last few weeks.

Movements: She was dancing like crazy yesterday which was a little out of character for her this past month. She also dropped a lot and my belly has completely changed shape.

Cravings: Sweets… I decided to make the Oatmeal Crispies for the L&D staff. Last time I went into labor the next day but wasn’t so lucky this time around. At least they taste yummy!

What I Am Looking Forward To: Baby girl arriving. I really thought this morning was it. Had consistent contractions from about 3am to 10 am. My appointment at 9 didn’t give me anything definitive and they started to fade after that. I have to admit I was a little bummed but after we came home and rested for awhile Rob, Parker and I went out to the mall. We had a blast and really lifted my spirits enjoying are family of three for at least one more day. I plan to get some remaining items accomplished this week and weekend and try to live life normally. Although I keep getting contractions I am just going to ignore them until they get painful, then I will know something is happening. Next week I have my 38 week appointment, a massage and am visiting an acupuncturist for an induction session.
