Pregnancy: Week 37

DATE: December 2, 2010

How far along: 37 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 39 pounds…..Gained back those pounds (+ a few) that I lost last week! Lots of water weight now. My ankles (I mean cankles) and getting BIG!

How big is baby? At week 37, your pregnancy is considered full term, meaning baby is likely to thrive after birth. Baby spends these last weeks in preparation for the outside world… meaning careful refinement of the blink, suck, inhale and exhale. Meconium, which you’ll probably find in the first diaper, is accumulating in the intestines. If (okay, as) you worry about giving birth, consider what it’s like for the little one. During the journey out of your womb, baby will produce more stress hormones than any other time in life.

Maternity Clothes: yep!

Sleep: Not good this week. Have been pretty darn uncomfortable!! I figure its practice for the night-time feedings again.

Best Moment of the Week: Hearing the heartbeat. Also hearing that she is still heard down, that I am dilated to 2-3 cm, and 80% effaced. Things are moving in the right direction!

Movement: oh yes….always! More shifting now…and more pressure down low (vs. up top).

Food Craving: just everything! ha

Food Aversions: none

Morning Sickness: none

Gender: GIRL!! (we did have the U/S tech confirm AGAIN at our U/S this week…she said 100% girl!)

Symptoms: heartburn, difficulty sleeping, contractions…but not regular

What I miss: sleeping…I am really tired this week!

What I'm looking forward to: seeing and holding my baby girl!! I am READY. I am sick of being pregnant and want her out!!

You are so going to have her in the next few weeks, hopefully you'll go into labor on your own :) I can't wait to hear how the birth story goes and see her sweet face in pics :)

This is by far my favorite picture of you yet. Your baby bump could not be more adorable.

Prayers for you and your sweet angel baby girl that God watches over you both and brings her safely into our world and you safely through the entire birth and healing.
