37w1d - Full term and Father's Day!

Baby and I made it to full term! Ok, kid, get out now. :) I am so ready for this baby to be here. I love being pregnant, but I want to meet this little girl. Everything is ready and now I just wait...I have a feeling she is quite comfy in there and will be hanging out at least until her due date.

I feel rather huge. Here's me full term:I think it is clear that baby hasn't dropped yet. I can tell because when I sit I can't breathe and I get light-headed. There's always a little baby bum crammed into my lungs.

Today is K's first father's day. I got him a card and Kate had her own message for him:

It says "Happy Father's Day, Daddy!!" :)

Here's a survey that others do every week. I figure I should do it at least once this pregnancy, so here goes:

How far along? 37 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Up 32 pounds, and I haven't gained in the past month so the doc thinks I'm done. I'd be happy with that - my goal was to stay under 40.

Maternity clothes? Um, yeah. Unless I'm wearing stretchy pj pants and a t-shirt.

Stretch marks? None (fingers crossed I can make it these last couple weeks without any!)

Sleep: Meh. I get up anywhere from 1-5 times to pee and am REALLY tired of sleeping on my side.

Best moment this week: Being full-term! And having my family feel babe hiccup. I have to deal with it 3 times a day, but they thought it was cute.

Movement: She still moves a lot and it is getting a bit painful. Especially when she pushes out on both sides at the same time.

Food cravings: I haven't really had any through the whole pregnancy...which has been nice and saved K from trooping out to get me food. :)

Gender: Sweet little girl.

Labor Signs: I've been having some contractions and they are getting a little more uncomfortable, but they come sporadically throughout the day, so I don't think they're doing anything.

Belly Button in or out? Out, has been for a while now.

What I miss: Sleeping on my back and stomach. Bending over to pick stuff up.

What I am looking forward to: This baby coming! Anytime now, please!

Milestones: I am pretty sure I have hit every milestone there is except my due date and actually having the baby.

Yay for full term! I'm sure you are relieved and excited. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that you posted your BFP. I hope things go quickly until your little one decides to make her debut.

Mrs. Goodson...Woo Hoo!! said...

Congrats on your "full term" status!! Hope that your LO makes her apperance soon.
