37 weeks

How far along: 37 1/2 weeks

Baby Size: about the size of a bunch of swiss chard. I must say, these food comparisons are weird.

Weight gain: 26 ibs.

Maternity clothes: Thanks to the rain my bathing suit only got pulled out twice this week. And, I may or may not wear the same outfit two days in a row..... yup.

Stretch marks: nothing yet

Sleep: Slept like a rock last night. I didn't even get up to pee once (because you care, I know). I think it was due to the fact that I didn't sleep much the night before so I was exhausted!

Gender:  Sheeeee. We still need a name. How about Rainbow Fall Christmas?

Movement: All the time. I'm pretty sure she has a cycling class in there that she attends. She's been mellow today though, thankfully! Yesterday, I was pretty sure she was going to spin her way out of there. I spoke too soon......

Best moment this week: Spending most of the day at the pool. Read some books (Thinking Woman's Guide to Childbirth, Happy Chaos and Bringing Up Bebe, Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep)

Found the pediatrician we are going with! Very happy about that! Check, check and check. We've almost got all our ducks in a row! 

Two of the couples in our Centering classes had their babies and another one is due this Saturday! It's exciting to go to our classes and find out who has had their babies and who is left. Makes it that much more real. We've all spent that last 6-7 months together and now the end is here! Wahooooo!
looking forward to: Getting the nursery finished and our house nice and sparkly clean. Oh and we're going to try to go camping tomorrow if the weather cooperates. That'll be fun!

Food cravings:  anything cold. Anything sweet. Ohhh and Peanut Butter Cliff bars. Gursh I love those things.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Labor Signs: I'm still not sure about the Braxton Hicks things. I think I've had them but they aren't painful or anything so I don't really know. 

She's dropped. Not that that means much but at least she's ready to shoot out like a bullet, right? Isn't that how it works? I sneeze and out she comes?

What I miss:  So I found a bunch of older pictures (honeymoon, travel pics, etc) and I really miss my non-pregnancy body. A lot. Call me selfish or superficial. I don't care. It's been great being pregnant and I love it but I'm ready to not have a baby inside.

Symptoms: pubic bone pain. yup. not fun. it feels like she is going to just fall out. my chiropractor did do an adjustment though to my pelvis, which was weird but helped a lot

Nursery: Made curtains this week and got a few more prints up. It's coming together. Slowly but surely.

Belly Button in or out? same old

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood:  Good! Decided to take the next few weeks to just chill. Originally I was trying to be hardcore get-everything-done but I've decided to just hang out, relax, go to the pool and get what I can do but not push it. We'll see how that pans out if I haven't gotten everything done and I go into labor :)! Um, if you want to get coffee, grab lunch, do dinner, join me at the pool.... holler at me! I'm down to get my hang out on.


  1. You are the cutest! I love the updates and pictures! Baby A is such a lucky little girl to come into such a loving, caring home with amazing parents. I'll be thinking about you and praying for you from Cali! Miss you!

  2. The sneeze part made me LOL! ;) Can't wait for this little one to arrive!


I love hearing from you :)!
