baby check-in: week 37

June 3, 2013, In: baby

Another one bites the dust…well weeks that is. This kiddo is now considered full term, meaning that all of her little organs are fully grown and she could be born any day now. That’s just crazy!

A few weeks ago, I was ready to have her out. I started to get puffy and uncomfortable. And while I am still puffier than I’d like, I’ve started to adjust to my new normal and the tingling hands do not bother me as much. It’s so funny how that can happen – how quickly we can adjust. I also think reality is setting in that she could be born anytime and that makes me more patient somehow.

I’m so curious about this little person…is she going to be like me or Brett? Will she have hazel eyes like the both of us? Or blue? Or brown? When is she going to be ready and grace us with her presence? And most of all, will we be able to look at her and instantly know what her name should be?

If you can’t read the board, here are the stats:

Alias: Peanut/Skeeziks
Age: 37 weeks
Sex: Girl
Height: ~19.25 in.
Weight: ~6.3 lb.
Notes: Baby is fully baked! (picture of a hot oven)

How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain? 39 pounds (Doc said I was supposed to stop gaining weight, but no such luck for me)
Maternity clothes? Of course!
Sleep? Pretty good again this week. I kicked out the body pillow which makes Brett happy too.
Miss anything? After the one high blood pressure reading, I am completely cutting out decaf coffee and as much caffeine as possible.  This does not include chocolate…that would just be mean. So, I will be preemptive and say decaf coffee.
Movement? Oh yes. She still likes to stick her foot out and have us rub it. I am hoping this means she’ll let me play with her feet when she comes out.
Cravings? I made 2 loaves of banana bread this week and froze them before eating any. Mistake…I was then totally craving some so I had to make a third batch.
Aversions? Nope
Gender: Girl
Labor signs? Not yet. Still having Braxton Hicks, but no concrete labor signs.
Wedding ring on or off? Off
Looking forward to: Going to more yoga this week. Now that I am working from home exclusively, I hope to get to a few daytime classes this week. Should be a great way to use this waiting time until she arrives.

    Glad things are going well! We had our little man May 30, at 39 weeks 1 day, and it has been amazing :)
