How far along: 37 weeks

Baby's size: Size of a winter melon

Developing this week Officially full term...baby you can come any day now!!

Weight gain: 28 lbs 

Sleep:  Rolling over takes an act of congress haha...getting up to go to the bathroom in the night is also another story...takes a lot longer than it used to

Maternity Clothes: Yes grabbed one daddy's t-shirts this week to wear at night and it was heavenly...so big and comfy it made me not feel so large ha!

Food cravings: fruit and chocolate

Food aversions: reflux these days makes food at night quite difficult but other than that nothing crazy

Symptoms I have: Oh Braxton Hicks with cramps...you are not my favorite....I will be excited when you turn into real contractions:)

Doctor’s Appointment:  Had a sonogram this week...fluid levels were back up to 14:) Yipee...mom is dilated at 3 cm, 80% effaced and at a 1 station...need you to stay put while Dr. T is out of town this weekend but after that we are ready any day now:)

Movement: Definitely getting cramped in there....your movements are smaller and less often but you are still wiggling away!

Belly Button: still an outie!

Gender: Still a boy

Best moment of the week: Finally getting a view of your profile on the sonogram this week....seeing that we are progressing and officially counting down the days!

What I’m looking forward to: meeting you and kissing those sweet cheeks

How far along: 38 weeks

Developing this week all is developed and you are just practicing, practicing, practicing

Weight gain: 29 lbs 

Sleep:  insomnia has hit this week again....once I fall asleep I sleep great besides the bathroom breaks though

Maternity Clothes: yes!

Food cravings: cherries, watermelon, and dark chocolate

Food aversions: Ready to be rid of reflux so I can enjoy food!

Symptoms I have: Tons and tons and tons of contractions,  horrible reflux with some nauseas days, and some pretty severe femoral nerve pain (probably one of the hardest to walk off)

Doctor’s Appointment:  Late appt this week because of scheduling..see Dr. T on Thursday...praying she either sends me into labor or I don't make it to see her ha!

Movement: Little kicks and stretches these days
