Week 37

Swiss chard (weight)

Over 19 inches, about 6 1/3 lbs

Baby Changes (Source:
He is now full term & his lungs are likely now able to fully adjust to life outside the womb!

Best Moment this Week
Josh & I got to have a really nice dinner last week to celebrate the day we started dating/got engaged, & I got to meet up with 3 friends during the day last week & Josh & I hung out with two of our couple friends Friday & Saturday night. I am thankful for the relationships in my life!

BOY! Elliot James.

Movement is still the same. He did figure out the other night how to kick me in the ribs... that hurt. Luckily he hasn't made it a habit. My midwife does think that he is engaged at this point which is good considering I only have a little over 2 weeks to go!

Food Craving
This week's fruits: apples, grapes, peaches, bananas. Boring.

My body has started waking up around 4 or 5 & not wanting to go back to sleep. So I have started getting up for about an hour then going back to bed, because I would not be able to function waking up that early!

What I am looking forward to
I feel like we are finally at a point where we are just waiting for him to come. Work has slowed down a bit for me, & we have no plans that can't be adjusted. So... let's go, little guy!

A little nausea, exhausted, sore back & shoulders, not sleeping well, Braxton Hicks, arthritis hands. Apparently my weight has FINALLY stabilized so I'm not gaining anymore, & actually lost a pound this week... AWESOME! I know that is a vain thing to be excited about while pregnant, but it's nice to know my body just needed a certain amount & once it got it, it stopped gaining. Phew!
