37 Weeks

How far along?
37 weeks FULL-TERM
Don’t feel like doing my usual pic, but I think you’ll enjoy this much better! 😉
To see more:

Total weight gain:
27 lbs

Maternity clothes:
shorts and some tops

My hips and legs get pretty sore, so I end up having to switch sides every couple of hours or less; which also means I end up getting up to pee, too! Thank goodness I’m able to easily fall back asleep though. Last night, I think I peed at least six times!

nauseousness, light-headedness, achey groin/pelvis, sore back, linea nigra, heartburn; but I’ve definitely felt a lot better these last few days than I have in the last 2-3 weeks.

Labor Signs:
I have a few prelabor symptoms… The baby has dropped and is head down in eviction position, I have had an increase in pressure in my pelvis (big difference this week), & a change in energy level. 
I think the nesting bug has started nibbling on me, too. {Finally!} Last night I got a burst of energy to sweep the kitchen floor, clear off/clean counter/table tops, sort the mail/coupons, & empty all the trash cans. My husband told me to STOP & SIT! DOWN! NOW! because he was afraid I’d send myself into labor. {haha}

[I’ve already swept the back porch today]

Best moment this week:
Seeing our little love on the big screen, something we didn’t think we’d get to do again. We didn’t get any good pictures though since she’s so low now.

What I’m looking forward to:
Hopefully having a baby SOON!

Wednesday night I was craving Red Lobster biscuits at 12am. 

Her feet are constantly moving around near my right ribs.

The u/s confirmed STILL GIRL!

What I miss:
Being comfortable sitting on the couch. It’s getting a lot harder these days!


Favorite moments:
Looking through all of Baby Girl’s clothes and imagining her wearing them 🙂
Oh! Oh! And not going into labor before BJ’s test today! wahoo!!

What’s that?! You haven’t entered our Baby Pool Game yet?
Click me to do so now!
Thanks to everyone who’s already done so. I have so much fun seeing what y’all are guessing!

    I cannot wait to see the rest of your photo shoot – from the snippets you've shown us I can already tell they are going to be amazing!
    YAY for not having the little miss before today's exam 🙂
    Hope you can find some comfort this weekend. And as soon as Blake gets home you can do allll the nesting you want 🙂

    Aw. Your pictures are really cute! I'm hoping to stay under 30 pounds. I'm 30 weeks today, and I'm at 21.5. I gained that 1.5 pound in the last 3 weeks, which is shocking, because up until about week 25, I was pretty steadily gaining a pound a week. Now it's really off. But I'm okay with that. 🙂 Hooray for being full term!

    Awww, LOVE the picture of you and Hubs!! So adorable.

    I can't believe you're SO close! I'm a little jealous. 😉 She's going to be here any. day. now. Crazy!

  • Tatiana

    Those pictures are stinkin adorable! You guys are so cute!
    I'm so jealous of you for being able to fall asleep right away! I toss and turn at least ever 15 minutes, and last night I peed 3 times in two hours! Crazy!
    And look at you being full term and all! Getting so.so.so close! I'm excited to "meet" your little diva 🙂

  • Ams

    I am going to have to go and look at the rest of the pictures because those two are SO cute!! I love them 🙂 And you look great (as per usual)!

  • Ashley

    I guess it's ok that you didn't do the usual belly pic… 😛 JK! Cute pics! Glad she waited until after B's test! Hope you and B can have more quality time before she takes over the house! 🙂
