Mildly Cranky 37 Weeks Pregnancy Update


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!ย  I’m going to need new shoes after all this swelling!
Maternity clothes:ย  Live in them obviously…ready to burn them…ALL!
Sleep:ย  Maybe one or two days a week I’m able to have a decent night of sleep
Best moment this week: ย 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:ย  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:ย  I’ve had a lot of pains and Braxton hicks with this pregnancy…never with my others.
What I miss:ย  Conversations that don’t involve pregnancy, my weight, decisions…and WINE!
What I look forward to:ย  My pre-pregnancy body…ohhh…how I miss thee!ย  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
