How far along? 37 weeks and 5 days — full term baby!
Baby is the size of a … Winter melon! Baby is somewhere between 18.9 to 20.9 inches and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds this week, gaining about 1/2 an ounce every day. Woah!
How has (s)he changed this week? He or she is practicing for life outside its cubbie by inhaling and exhaling, sucking its thumb, blinking, and rolling from side to side.
So far, I’ve gained … 37 pounds, up two pounds this week according to my last OB appointment.
Sleep has been … okay, but I’m still exhausted all the time!
I feel … Very tired and ready to meet the little peanut. =)
I miss … Cold deli meats
Craving … An italian sub!
Keep me away from … Nothing at the moment
Symptoms? Frequent bathroom breaks, shortness of breath, baby brain, Braxton Hicks contractions, fatigue!
Gender? Boy! Or girl. Who knows!
Maternity clothes? Everything these days
Movement? Constantly and sometimes it’s pretty uncomfortable!
Exercise? Just walking, trying to use gravity to my advantage =)
Healthy eats? Bananas, grapes, pineapple, triscuits, asparagus
Splurges? Chinese food and cheesecake − not together! =)
Wedding rings on or off? Wedding band on; the others are hanging around my neck
My best moment was … Relaxing with Rich over the long weekend and not having much on the agenda
Looking forward to … The peanut finally making an appearance!
