How far along: 37 weeks exactly. Technically full term, I think! (Though now I’m not entirely sure on this. I was looking it up and apparently 39 weeks is now considered full term in some cases and not 37?)
Weight gain: Somewhere around 20-25 pounds. It depends on the day, apparently. I’m not thrilled with the fact that I’ve gained so much. I really thought I would be able to keep it to 15. Blech…
Sleep: So so bad. Like, unbelievably awful most nights.
Baby purchases this week: A few last minute essentials from our Amazon registry and a few books with the gift cards we got from the shower.
Best moment regarding baby this week: Knowing that she can basically come any day now, and knowing that if she does she will more than likely be perfectly fine.
Gender: It’s a girl!
Movement: Her movements have been weird lately. She had a few good weeks of solid movement around 31-34 weeks, but lately she’s been pretty quiet during most of the day. She’s more active at night and very early in the morning, but she’s definitely been slowing down overall. Though she’s good at making herself known when she wants to be.
Food cravings: Everything I shouldn’t be eating. Taco Bell, chicken nuggets, chocolate in any form. Ugh.
Food aversions: Sausage forever. Nothing else, though. Some food smells have been bothering me again, but nothing consistent or too overpowering.
How’s Mama? A little stressed and anxious and overwhelmed. Very ready to meet this little girl already!
Miss anything? Being able to function without having either some kind of physical pain or a slight mental breakdown.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our daughter and being comfortable again (at some point).
Our baby in veggie/fruit terms: A winter melon, a honeydew, or a watermelon. It’s kind of crazy trying to wrap my head around the fact that there is a watermelon sized child floating around in there…
