Pregnancy Update: 37 Weeks

37w 3d

How far along? 37 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 38 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: I lost about a 1/4 lb- so that makes me 151.4 lbs. It's funny because I've been swelling recently PLUS I've been in a "Screw it! I'll just eat what I want from now on!" mood and have been eating dessert twice a day and a ton of carbs. Lamby's packing on those pounds!

Maternity clothes: I rotate four maternity tops... but in regards to sweats, now I just stick to my Gilly Hicks sweats. The jeans from Destination Maternity still fit, but jeans are just soooo uncomfortable and the band makes my tummy itch!

YES! It is as painful as it looks!

Stretch marks? Oh, yes. The stretch marks have come in in all its gloriousness. Bask it in its virility.

Sleep: Sleep is still great! I still get up 2-3x/night at midnight, 1:30am and 5:30am and fall asleep quickly.

Best moment this week: Ordering and assembling the Britax travel system was eye opening. It's no longer just Cristhian and me- like it's been for the past 8+ years- we're really going to be a family... with a daughter.

Worst moment of the week: I guess the worst thing this week was being told that Lamby needs to score well during our next ultrasound or else we'll have to go into Boston for a non-stress test and fetal monitoring.

Miss anything? I miss sleeping on my stomach and back!!

Movement: Definitely less than before (there's less room after all), but she still moves periodically for long stretches.

Food cravings: Ehh. Still nothing... but I've been liking pancakes lately. Or maybe it's the $5 coupon burning in my pocket that's enticing me for pancakes? Haha.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing at all!

37w 3d

Have you started to show yet: Ohhh, yes!

Gender Prediciton: It's a girl!

Labor signs: I've been getting a lot of sporadic contractions. This past Saturday, Cristhian seriously thought it was THE day. He spent the rest of the weekend nesting!

Symptoms: From most annoying or painful to least: constant pelvic pain in my left groin, sciatica/upper and lower back pain with overactivity, slight swelling and a dime-sized hemorrhoid.

Belly button in or out? It's really hard to say... it's sorta in, sorta out.

Wedding rings on or off? On for the most part... and off when I don't drink enough water!

Happy or moody most of the time? Actually, I've been frazzled for most of the week. Cristhian and I had a lot of things to order and assemble (hospital bag, diaper bag, travel system, Lamby's binder, etc)!

Looking forward to: Seeing Lamby at our next ultrasound!

I wanted to note that at my last two check-ups, I've been measuring larger than the average fundal height for my gestational age. The OB/GYN warned me that we might have to undergo another ultrasound... and it looks like it's come to fruition! Cristhian and I are going for my ultrasound next Tuesday morning. Hopefully I won't get sent to labor and delivery for a NST and hooked up to the EFM. :(
