37 weeks, 6 days (oops again!)


How far along?  37 weeks (March 2-8)

Maternity clothes?  Yes; they’re hanging on there.

Stretch marks?  Yep

Sleep?  This week actually wasn’t terrible.  Bathroom trips averaged around 3/night which allowed me to get a whole lot more sleep than last week.

Miss Anything?  Being able to touch my toes and bend certain ways without squishing my daughter.

Movement?  Still pretty active.  This week, she’s taken to wedging her leg (?) up under my rib cage on the right side.  If it wasn’t for this sweet little one, I may never have known that I’m not a fan of having my liver massaged.

Food cravings?  Waffles.

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Nope.  Even my acid reflux was better this week!  I guess it really helps that she’s dropping lower!

Best moment this week?  We had a snow day so I got to spend a lot of time with my Jonathan and we also got to take some maternity pictures!  It was all a lot of fun!  I also saw that one of the babies I spent most of my time with in the Namwianga orphanage in Zambia was able to stand up all by himself this week!  If you remember my posts from Zambia, this is HUGE.  Joel was never expected to come this far.  Conqueror, he is a conqueror!  🙂

Worst moment of the week?  There were a couple gloomy days that weren’t much fun.  But now it’s beautiful and everything seems easier when the sun is shinning.

How much are you showing this week?  Even my maternity clothes aren’t covering this bump like they used to.

Pregnancy Brain?  I can’t remember anything these days!

Labor Signs?  Maybe one or two contractions Friday night, but nothing too serious.

Belly Button in or out?  I’m just going to go ahead and say out, because now I can consistently see it poking through most of my shirts whenever I catch my reflection in a window or something.  Yay, out!

Wedding rings on or off?  Off.  Jonathan was getting worried about the indentation my rings were making in my finger, so they are now on a chain around my neck 🙂

Happy or Moody most of the time?  Happy!

Looking forward to?  Meeting our baby and seeing family/friends as they come into town!  TWO WEEKS UNTIL DUE DATE!!!
