Baby Wilson: 37 Weeks -- Full Term!
How far along? 37 weeks – Full term!
Baby’s size/development this week: weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures over 19 inches long; about the size of a head of a winter melon or a bunch of swiss chard. I don’t regularly eat either of these vegetables so this isn't really a great comparison.
Maternity clothes: wearing them? Ye, although many of them are stretched to capacity….
Miss anything? Maneuvering easily
Food cravings? None
Anything making you queasy or sick? Some people really have to lay off the amount cologne to wear. Seriously.
Sleep: Meh, this has not been great. The night sweats continue and I usually get up in the middle of the night either to go to the bathroom or because I’m uncomfortable. Then, I can’t get comfortable so I’m just up. Usually pretty early no matter what day of the week it is.
Best moment of the week: My doctor’s appointment when I got to hear Baby’s heartbeat again! Also, I found out that I’m starting to dilate. My body is prepping and getting ready for Baby Wilson’s arrival!
Nursery: Items are put together, the room is painted, the furniture is now painted. It is just a matter of organizing and final prep!
Wedding rings on or off? on
Movement? Shoves, jabs, and rolls. Baby wants to get out!
Weird pregnancy thing of the week: I've been feeling some Braxton Hicks contractions which are super fun. At least that’s a sign that my body is getting ready to deliver!
Daddy is feeling: Excited and scared
Mommy is feeling: The same as Dad.
Workouts this week: Continued walking, although this morning I felt particularly sluggish. I just didn't feel like moving. I still have a few weeks left to go! Let’s hope today is just an off day. :)
Looking forward to: BABY'S ARRIVAL!!!
