Pregnancy | Week 37

Baby girl is officially full term! No signs of her making an appearance anytime soon. I am convinced that I will carry her to 40 weeks and then some.

Size of Baby: Baby is still around 19 inches long and weighs about 6 lbs. She is now the size of a honeydew.

Weight Gain:  Up 29 pounds. Hoping that my diminishing stomach size and lack of appetite will help my weight gain starts to slow down these last few weeks.

Maternity Clothes: I am starting to wonder how I will ever go back to normal pants. Full panel pregnancy pants are a dream!

Nursery: Everything is finished and ready for baby girl's arrival!

Movement: Yes and it is starting to hurt. Baby girl is running out of room and she is making it known. She is still pretty high up and rests right below my ribcage for most of the day. This makes bending over or picking things up off the floor quite nauseating. 

Symptoms: I am feeling overall uncomfortable these past few weeks. I noticed it start around week 34 and has gradually gotten worse. Lower back pain is a new symptom this week. Honestly, I have loved pregnancy up until this point. I am beyond thankful for a pregnancy that has overall been pretty painless and symptom free.

Sleep: Waking up on my back by the end of the night very frequently. I try my best to stay on my left side and keep multiple pillows plus my pregnancy pillow wedged around me.

Cravings: I enjoyed my first hamburger in years today. Man, it was delicious! I am loving french fries right now as well.

What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach and having my old body back. I truly can't wait until I can lay on my stomach and stretch in cobra pose.

Exercise: 5 PB classes this week. Seeing if I can make 19 classes in February which is a challenge my studio is doing!

Best Moments: Washing the last of the baby clothes and finalizing the organization of baby's nursery. I can not believe that she could be here at any time!
