How far along: 37 Weeks Week of August 23
Baby is the size of: 6.5ish lbs.
Total weight gain: 19 1/2 lbs. I actually lost 1/2 a lb. in the last 2 weeks.
Best moment this week: I finished work at Blackberry Farm for the season and got to come home to Turlock for good. No more driving back and forth... I love being home!
Food cravings: nope. food is good though.
Anything making you queasy or sick: if I think about going into labor or the 2 hour car ride to the hospital I feel sick.
Sleep: still getting lots. naps are good too. although it is hard to sleep well when it is so hot.
Pregnancy symptoms: I am so sore. Sometimes the sore spot on my ribs burns like a heat rash. Not fun.
Miss anything: I miss having the energy to finish a simple project in one shot. Now I have to take multiple breaks and then the tasks still sometimes don't get done.
Maternity clothes: all I wear. the stretchier the better. skirts and maxi dresses are my friend. It is so hot here in Turlock!
Belly button in or out: flat/out
Stretch marks: yes... I already had some on my hips and upper thighs... now I definitely have some around my belly button as well. I knew I would get them, it was only a matter of time.
Movement: she stills moves a lot but I can tell she is running out of room because her movements are harder kicks and jabs and less barrel rolls.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy. Caleb's first letter home from the MTC made me cry both times I read it.
Baby gear purchases: We have finished purchasing stuff for baby. We even went to Costco so we could stock up on food for when she comes. The milk expires after her due date and that is how you know you are close to being done.
Wedding rings on or off: on... I put it back on when we got home. I was just missing it too much and I can still kinda get it off.
Early labor signs: nope
Daddy moment: Anthony and I never have to be apart again. At least not for a very long time. He has been working hard at our apartment to finish up some projects before baby girl comes.
Most recent doctor's appointment: Everything looks good. Dr. didn't even mention the slight weight loss. She made sure to let me know baby is full term and can be born safely anytime now but that most first-time mom's don't delver until week 39 or 40.
Looking forward to: Being a momma. I am ready to meet our little girl.
