37 weeks

How far along: 37 Weeks

Size of baby: Your baby is now considered "full term," even though your due date is three weeks away. If you go into labor now, her lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb.  Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.
Weight gain: 33 lbs

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Yes, love feeling her move - and quite funny watching my stomach move like crazy!

Sleep: Not sleeping that great..but its manageable!

Symptoms: Back pain, swollen feet, hands and face...

Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!

Best Moment this week: Full term & FINALLY getting my stitches "out". 

What I am looking forward to: meeting our little girly!!!!!  I know I should treasure these last few days/weeks but I am so anxious and just want her here!!
