Full Term: 37 Weeks – 21 days to go…


How Far Along: 37 weeks

Size of baby: 6 1/3 lbs and just over 19 inches

Heart rate at Last Doctor’s Visit (3/17): 155

Measuring at Last Doctor’s Visit (3/17):  36 weeks

What to Look Forward to at the Next Doctor Visit (4/6):  I typically go to the doctor on Thursday’s but they had to reschedule so I’ll be heading there on Wednesday and taking the girls with me.  It will be neat for them to hear the heartbeat.  Strep B culture from last appointment came back – negative!

Total Weight Gain/Loss:+Maternity Clothes: going to have to up this to 34 pounds…went to the doctor last week.  Definitely wearing Maternity Clothes…I have been for pretty much the whole time.

Gender: It’s a GIRL; name will be chosen when we see her!

Please – keep suggesting names…we really don’t decide until we meet her…

Movement: Still crazy but I don’t think I’m noticing it as much since I’ve been much more active now that I’m feeling better.

Sleep: okay – crazy, crazy, crazy dreams.   I’ve also tired to quit with the caffeine and I think that has helped with the mid-night waking up…for now…

What I miss: champagne, beer, being able to walk without pain, sleeping on my back, my ankles

Cravings: canned pears, whipped cream, bacon, mayonnaise, chocolate, pineapple, pineapple upside down cake

Symptoms: heartburn, terrible hips, swollen ankles, emotional, an enlarged stomach

Best Moment of the Week: finishing up LOTS on my to-do list!
