37 weeks- Full Term Baby!


Total Weight Gained/Loss? I somehow gained 3 pounds at my last visit. This is pissing me off. None of my clothes fit any different but that number keeps sliding up. Grrrr....

Maternity Clothes: Basically I live in yoga pants and Mr. Perfect's shirts. On the weekend I wear dresses and flip flops. Thank you Spring for showing up and bringing me some warmer weather!

Sleep? Somehow I think my child has destroyed my right rib. I wake up with my ribs literally burning in pain. I can't find a comfortable position that doesn't make my ribs hurt. And I wake up at least 4 times a night for a bathroom break again. It's great fun.

Best Moment of the Week? I am pretty much 100% prepared for her to get here. Meaning with her stuff and all that. Emotionally? I think I'm still terrified, but she could come at any time and I'd be ready for her. Her bag is packed and ready to go!!

Movement- This kid is still all over the place. No joke. The doc said it's because of my massive amounts of fluid, she still has so much room to move. She really likes to roll from side to side, and I swear, her head is like trying to rub a whole in my cervix. I feel such pain down there and can literally feel her stretching things out. Also, she's found something on my right side that she hits that makes my right leg ache ridiculously and then go to sleep. It happens all the time, like when we're walking through stores. So odd.

Food Craving- I'm over food. Funny, because the scale isn't saying that, but I'm having to force myself to eat again.

Food aversions- just over food in general.

Morning sickness?- none.

Gender- Baby Girl =)

Labor Signs- Lots of Braxton Hicks. Last Friday night was horrible. I swore I was going into labor. Turned out it was gas. =) But between the heartburn I was having and the gas pains with the Braxton Hicks, I was miserable. I basically laid on the floor and cried it all hurt so bad. And that wasn't even labor!! Still having a lot of pelvic pain. I was hoping at my appointment today they would tell me I was making progress. Then my appointment got moved to Thursday. They better have some good news for me...

Belly Button- the whole thing is pretty much out now. There's a tiny part at the bottom that is still flat. It's holding on with everything it has!

What I miss- Just being able to bend over. I couldn't even put something on the floor board of the car this morning. I can't tie my shoes and even putting the dishes away is a job. I also miss my skin looking like a twenty somethings, instead of a 13 year old boys. Gah.

What I'm looking forward to- My appointment Thursday. I stopped my heparin and one other blood thinner when I turned 37 weeks on Saturday (yay!) and I want to make sure she's ok with that change. Also, we should be finding out if we're making any more progress yet, and if we're not, then setting up a date to get this little girl out.

Weekly Wisdom- I really don't know... I feel better than I thought I would at this point and I think it's just because I'm trying to enjoy this. She's going to be here so soon so I'm trying to enjoy these last few weeks just me and her. I guess because I'm pretty sure this is the only time I'm doing this, I'm just trying to enjoy it. So I guess that's my advice. Enjoy it. It really does fly by...

Milestones- This little one is officially considered full term. Wahoo!!

Isn't that leg thing scary. It happened to me in the shower for the 1st time. I screamed out in pain...then, couldn't put weight on my leg. It scared the crap out of me.
