Week 37

Week 37

The bump: I don't feel all the huge but every now and then I get a glance of myself in a mirror and do a double take.

How far along: 37 weeks!

How big is baby: From The Bump - Yay! Baby has reached full term. He likely measures around 18.9 to 20.9 inches and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds. He's gaining about 1/2 ounce each day. He's practicing some skills: inhaling, exhaling, sucking, gripping and blinking. He's getting his first sticky poop (called meconium) ready for his first diaper.

Weight gain/loss: I'm up 3 pounds from last week (oops) for a total of 27.4 pounds gained.

Stretch marks/belly button: Yes to stretch marks and belly button is a stretched out innie. The pain around it has thankfully gone away. My midwife did confirm it was just from stretching/repeatedly being kicked in that spot.

Sleep: I sleep really well when I do sleep, I just don't sleep a lot. I'm usually up early and to bed late despite my best efforts. I don't usually feel all that tired though.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Still on salads although I've only had one. I think it's the idea of a salad. I did have a bad cookies and milk craving that required a late night cookie run.

Movement: Lots of squirming going on it there. He also has hiccups pretty regularly which is getting old for both of us.

What I'm loving: Being so close to the end!

Symptoms: Nothing new going on here.

What I'm looking forward to: The fabulous ladies of San Antonio Bloggers are throwing 5 of us a baby shower tonight. I can't wait to see what they've put together. I really love being a part of such a great group that would throw something like this together for all of us.

Best moment of the week: The ball shot.

How I'm feeling: Like crud, but that's due to a summer cold I've seemed to have picked up. I started feeling it on Friday and pretty much spent the weekend trying to fend it off. Yeah. Not so much. Yesterday and this morning have been rough. It's all in my chest and I have a nasty cough. Hoping to feel better for the baby shower tonight, but we'll see.


  1. You're so close - how exciting! Hope you are doing great :)

    1. Thanks Amanda! I'm getting closer and closer to done. I think it's a combo of the heat and this cold I have.

  2. I LOL'ed at you craving the idea of salads. When I was pregnant with my first I craved the idea of tacos. I didn't want to eat them, I just thought spicy meat and cheese served in a crispy shell sounded good.

    Although later in the pregnancy I ate so many tacos I thought I was going to give birth to one.

    In any case - FULL TERM!! WOOHOO!!

    1. Haha! I could seriously eat tacos every single day.
