37 weeks.

How far along? 37 weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: About +30 lbs. (The hubs informed me at my last appointment that I now weigh more than him. Thanks, dear.)
Maternity clothes? I'm wearing stretch pants. And I love it.

Stretch marks? This has been a sad week. I now have one gigantic stretchie above my belly button. My body as far as I'm concerned is now a total loss.

Sleep: Past couple of nights have been okay - falling asleep quickly and sleeping more on my back.

Best moment this week: Knowing we are totally set for this kid.

Movement: Yep. Got a huge kick while trying to pee earlier. Thought it was my water breaking. The kid's already a prankster.

Food cravings: Back to craving avocado rolls & white wine.

Gender: Now that the girl name is settled, I'm totally convinced it's a girl.

Labor Signs: None. My back hurts, but I think it's because my body is disagreeing with all the laying I'm doing.

Belly Button in or out? Ugh.

What I miss: Being comfortable.

What I am looking forward to: Getting this baby out!!!

Weekly Wisdom: Candy corn is good.

Milestones: We are officially full term. GET THE HINT, NINJA!


  1. You're too cute and I love you. That is all.

  2. Wait, also, I am getting uber excited.Did I use uber correctly here? I'm not sure. All I know is it feels like Christmas morning is coming.

  3. I thought of you this morning as I had my first internal of this pregnancy-- is that weird? That I thought of a complete stranger-- a woman, no less-- while getting fingered by the midwife? Yeah, might be. Anyway, I thought of you because you're way dilated way before your due date and I found out that I'm 2cms already. I also thought of you because with each of my two babies before this one, I was 4-4 1/2 with no mucus plug for the last 4 weeks or so.

    Soo-- just thought I'd share that slightly creepy tidbit with you. :-)

    I hope you're feeling well this morning and don't worry about those stretchies-- my tummy got effed over baaaaadddddly with my first and 5 years later, the marks are almost not visible. Also, Alba Un-Petroleum Cream is where it's at when it comes to seriously good skin care. You just dare another stretch mark to come on after using that. From one Mama to another. :-)

  4. Oh, your picture is so cute. I think you look adorable.
    About weighing more than you hubby - I read your next post where you mention your weight, and I don't think most guys are that light. And, before I lost a lot of weight, a couple years ago my regular (read: nonpregnant) weight was more than you. I think you're doing great!
    Enjoy the stretchy pants though :)

  5. By the look of your belly, my guess it's a BOY!
