Mildly Cranky 37 Weeks Pregnancy Update

20171218_121355

How far along: 37 Weeks
Baby is size of a: honeydew melon
Total weight gain: this is just annoying now…the water weight alone is to the point I’m just over being pregnant!  I’m going to need new shoes after all this swelling!
Maternity clothes:  Live in them obviously…ready to burn them…ALL!
Sleep:  Maybe one or two days a week I’m able to have a decent night of sleep
Best moment this week:  receiving a gift from a student—so thoughtful!
Food cravings: The gestational diabetes (which I’m pretty confident was inaccurately diagnosed) has pretty much ended any cravings
Food aversions:  None
Gender: Boy…checked again at the last ultrasound to make sure
Name: My #1 favorite is Luke, but he doesn’t like it…still not 100% on a name yet
Labor signs:  I’ve had a lot of pains and Braxton hicks with this pregnancy…never with my others.
What I miss:  Conversations that don’t involve pregnancy, my weight, decisions…and WINE!
What I look forward to:  My pre-pregnancy body…ohhh…how I miss thee!  Let me count the ways!
Milestones: two weeks ago he was measuring 6lb, 9oz—according to the ultrasound (which were highly inaccurate for my other pregnancies, so we shall see)
Bump: feels like it’s growing by the second, and I swear his feet might break a rib soon

I’m a mother of three beautiful children who have given me the strength in life to be determined in reaching my goals. I am a teacher certified in English and Special Education and truly enjoy going to work every day. I recently completed my requirements to become certified in school district leadership to make an impact on a much larger scale. I have had my fair share of blood, sweat, and tears, but the entire journey has made me grateful and appreciative of all that I have. One strategy I found helpful was to find something every day to be thankful for---focus on the positives in life! My goal with this blog is to do just that---focus on those “little” moments with the hope to inspire others.
