Baby Bump: Week 37

Forgot to clean my mirror today.  Sorry!

How far along?  37 weeks - she's officially full term!

Weight gain/loss: Only gained 1 extra pound this week, up to 44 total.  Almost done, almost done...

Feeling: Mixed.  Some days are good and some days are really, really bad.  Overall, my spirits are improved just knowing that she will be here really soon!  When I wake up still having morning sickness at this point, though...and when I can't sleep because my body aches so much....well, then it's a little more difficult.

Maternity clothes?  I pretty much hate all of my maternity clothes at this point.  I don't want to see them anymore.  I miss real jeans.

Sleep: Oh boy.  This week has been interesting.  Lincoln learned how to climb out of his crib last Saturday - and he didn't just climb out, he flipped himself over the edge headfirst.  Which means I no longer think it is safe for him to sleep there.  So we are now trying to teach him to sleep in a toddler bed.  The last couple of days have gone pretty well, but the first two or three nights, I hardly slept at all.  He thought it was fantastic to get up at 12:45am and run around shrieking - until almost 5am.  Unfortunately not kidding.  I am a little bit terrified of what is going to happen when I am nursing a newborn in the middle of the night and trying to keep him in bed, too.  :\

Food cravings: Bought some caramel dip and opened it this morning - pretty sure I might eat it all today.  I've also been enjoying some clearanced Halloween candy.  Yes I should probably try to increase my intake of "healthy" but...

Gender: Girl
 
Movement?  She's still really active.  I don't think she has realized that she is out of room, while I am definitely aware of this!

What I miss? Just feeling normal.

Best moment this week: Reaching full term and knowing that I'm in the clear to deliver at the birth center as planned!  Also we put up the Christmas tree and it makes me happy!

What I'm looking forward to:  The weekend and having Andrew home to help with Lincoln/help me get the house organized (pretty sure I have a big nesting instinct going on at the moment - the house is driving me crazy)

Next Appointment: November 15 at 37 weeks, 6 days.
