|37 weeks 1 day|
Baby size: Watermelon...crazy. On average, about 19 inches long and 6 1/3 pounds.
Total weight gain: About 20 pounds total.
Sleep: Eh...getting a little worst. She just is in uncomfortable positions some nights which makes it hard for me to get comfortable. I also wake up to pee about every other hour it seems. I am thankful to be on Fall Break this week, though, which will allow me to get more rest and make up for waking up so much throughout the night.
Movement: Lots of strong movement. Her little foot hurts when it moves around sometimes, but I love being able to put my hand on her foot as it pushes out. I still am in awe daily of the positions she seems to take on and how my stomach transforms before my eyes.
Food cravings/aversions: Mexican still isn't a huge hit. Chinese tastes really good. I'm also back to craving Dr. Pepper. And chocolate has hit the top of the cravings list these days.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Constant bathroom trips, pain in general, some mild cramping, occasional Braxton Hicks, etc. Basically everything the book says will happen right now.
What I miss: Again, feeling normal and having a "normal" body.
What I'm looking forward to: Her birthday and my maternity leave with her.
Milestones: Full-term!! I can't believe we're already here! It's such a blessing to know that if she decided to come at any time now, it would be perfectly okay and labor wouldn't be considered pre-term. Whoo hoo! Also, our bags are basically packed (mine and Justin's, Boone's, and Adeline's) except for a few last-minute items.
Best moment this week: Hitting full-term. This week is my Fall Break, which came at a FABULOUS time. This gal needs a break (both mentally and physically).
Moments with Justin: Date night! Friday after my appointment, we returned some things to Target and enjoyed frappuccinos from Starbucks, went to see a matinee (Courageous--a MUST SEE!), and then went to dinner at P.F. Chang's with a gift card we've had since Christmas. It was such a great time of being together and talking. I'm soaking in every little moment we get together these days. I know that "on-a-whim" dates will be few and far between once Adeline's here. Although we can't wait for her to be here, I don't want to take any of this time for granted.
