37 Weeks - We're full term!

Full Term. We are full term. It seems like just yesterday we were TTC, I was waking up every single morning at 6 to temp, stressing over every little symptom in the 2 weeks leading up to AF. Now we could have our little miracle any day now. :) What an amazing feeling!

As you can see from my beautiful picture in the post below: I'm very swollen. It gets worse by the day, but the doctor still says everything is okay, so I'm trusting she's right. It is so ugly though! I can't fit in any of my shoes, and I sure don't want to expose the world to my grossness by wearing flip flops. I think it's come to that though. I'm wearing a Walmart faux diamond band in lieu of my beautiful wedding ring. :( I couldn't just not wear a ring, so we spend a whopping $8 on an extra large band for the time being.

Good news! (A little TMI so if you don't want to know, don't read any further.)

I lost my MP Sunday!! I woke up, went to the bathroom, and noticed it was coming out in chunks! Yeeaaah!! Yes - I am ->that<- excited about my grossness. I know it could still mean weeks, but progress is progress, right?!

**How far along? 37 Weeks - Full term!

**Total weight gain/loss: I'm attributing my gain to swelling...hehe...40 total.

**How big is baby?: Around 6-6 1/2 lbs. now.

**Maternity clothes? Blah - It's slim pickings now.

**Stretch marks? They're like kudzu. I hate them.

**Sleep: Like a baby... I get up 2-3 times to pee but that's it!

**Best moment this week: Losing my MP. :)

**Movement: She's still rocking-n-rolling.

**Food cravings: Actually, nothing this week.

**Gender: Sweet baby girl!

**Labor Signs: More and more contractions. Lost MP, lots of cramping.

**Belly Button in or out? It's stuck. I'm wondering if it will ever go back in.

**What I am looking forward to: We have our growth U/S this morning!

**Weekly Wisdom: I'm trying all the old wives tales for inducing labor, so I'll let you know next week if they're all BS or not. :)

**Milestones: We're full term!


  1. It's me...the random girl who ran across your blog and now follows it. :)

    I'm 37 weeks, too, and have started "Project Evacuate Baby". Here's a link to my blog post about it, if you care to join in on the fun!


    Good luck!!!

  2. I'm super excited you lost your MP! I never lost mine until I had my water broken. Can't wait to hear about your little girl!!
