37 Week Baby Update

Friday, January 24, 2014



How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain: 21 pounds
Maternity clothes? Maxi dress, stretchy jeans, baggy sweats, maternity tops,  and big sweaters
Stretch marks? Nope, I thought I saw some but they were just veins haha
Sleep: Sleep was especially bad this week because I have been sick with a cold and fever, so I had to deal with that on top of the regular bathroom breaks and trouble getting and staying comfortable :/  I also noticed this week that I am having really bad heartburn at night. I try to keep my head a bit elevated, and this helps it to stay down a little bit.
Best moment this week: Going to the doctor for my check up :)
Miss anything? I miss not having Braxton Hicks contractions all of the time haha. My stomach is a constant rock, so you can probably imagine how that would make things a bit tough ;)
Movement: She likes to drag her foot across my stomach or poke it out right below my rib cage. She is definitely getting bigger! She also likes to kick the bed when I am laying on either side of my stomach. I am so excited to meet this little one that I can hardly stand it!
Food cravings: Soup, cheese, breads, and lots of water
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eating makes me pretty sick most of the time :/
Gender: Girl 
Labor signs: No 
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions (lots and lots), nausea, swollen feet, and I've also been really itchy (Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?)
Belly button in or out? Out. Chanse pointed this out to me the other day ha
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, but it doesn't spin around my finger like it used to
Happy or moody most of the time: I am super happy and excited when I think that our little girl is going to be here so soon, but I am also very anxious and nervous because I don't know what to expect out of labor and the unknown scares me a bit. Just being honest!
Looking forward to: My doctors appointment next week and meeting our little girl within the next 3 weeks or so :)

No gym pic this week :/ I was so sick that I was lucky enough to get from the couch to the kitchen and back. I'm definitely starting to feel better though, which I am so grateful for :)
