Full Term!!

A.k.a. 37 weeks. I can't believe that I get to finally say that!

How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain: I lost 1lb between 35 and 36 weeks! Haha eat that! First time in 36 + weeks that I have lost weight.
Maternity Clothes? Are starting to get tight.
Sleep: I need a lot of it. It depends on the night, but I haven't actually felt like I am losing sleep yet, which is nice.
Best moment this week: The doctor's appointment, see labor signs below!
Food Craving: Nothing really
Movement: Lots of rolls and pushing out.
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: Well, I am 1 cm dilated and 80% effaced. As hard as I am trying to not let it happen, at this point everything is a possible labor sign. Headache and nausea last night before bed, possibly. Feeling crampy and a lot of pressure this morning, of course it's labor, and no it doesn't matter that it only lasted for 20 minutes. And yes I am a wipe watcher. I check the TP and toilet every time I go to the bathroom (which is a lot), just in case I am having those kinds of labor signs.
Symptoms: I really do feel pretty good. I know that I am lucky. A little swelling and heartburn isn't that bad.
Belly button in or out: In and it is not coming out. Ha, Amy!
What I miss: My energy
What I am looking forward to: Baby being here, going camping next weekend, date night with Brian on Sunday.
Milestones: 37 Weeks!!!

Ya, ya - you win on the belly button thing. :) I have come to realize that there are so many things I got the bad end of & good end of going through pregnancy & labor. Bad end... super stretch marks (i really don't have that elastic of skin) and the good end... fast easy deliveries. My advice for you... (and I have done this a quite a couple times!) remember - it doesn't last forever - it is such a small tiny part of life (definitely NOT FUN at all) but some how don't give up! I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I pretty much think of you every day. And also thinking "you watch... she'll go 2 weeks over!" ;) If I find the time I want to get you a copy of the guessing contest that we did at the "not a baby shower - its a family party" party. Then you'll know too about the same time we do who wins. We'll see... in all my spare time!
