37 weeks!!

How far along: 37 weeks and 2 days. 19 days to go!! 

Next appointment: Today. My appointment was scheduled for yesterday. Conrad had taken the day off so he could come. He hasn't been able to make it to an appointment and feels bad about so we were both really looking forward to it. I got a call that morning saying that one DR called out sick and the other would be in surgery. Since I'm 37 weeks I need to be seen by a OB and not an NP. I was one upset pregnant momma. I cried. Cried that my appointment got changed. Now I have an afternoon appointment (which I hate!!) and my dear husband can't come along. :( 

Any new aches/pains: Just a lot of pressure. Being uncomfortable all the time. 

Sleep: It's pretty much crummy sleep after 2-3 hours. 

Best moment this week: Definitely having Conrad home for 3 days. So nice! 

Movement: ALL of the time. 

Labor signs: Last night I was having some pretty good contractions. I thought that it could possibly be it then because I started to time them ... they went away. 

Food cravings: Chocolate!! 

What I miss: Sleeping. Sleeping good at night. Sleeping in. My little Aubrey decided to wake up at 5:55 yesterday. Oh I sent her back to sleep. Wayyy to early to be up. Then Allyson woke up at 6:40. This morning Allyson decided that 6:30 was a better time to wake up. I had been up since 4:00 with a headache. I just would like to sleep. I'm so looking forward to nap time today. 





How big is baby: Stalk of Swiss Chard
Average size: Around 19 inches, about 6.5 pounds.
Congratulations! You've got what is officially considered a full-term babyeven with three weeks to go. That doesn't mean he's finished growing — in fact, he's still packing on about a half pound a week (at this age, the average fetus weighs about 6.5 pounds). That makes it a little crowded in your uterus, so he’s probably not kicking as much, though he’s probably stretching, rolling a bit, and wiggling (all of which you’ll be able to feel!). Right now, your little superstar is busy rehearsing for his big debut, inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid (to get the lungs ready for that first breath), sucking his thumb (to prepare for that first suckle of milk), blinking, and turning from side to side. 

Me and my Red Chard because I have NO CLUE what this even is. lol.
