38 W Update!

This is my sorry excuse for a weekly update. I don't feel like finding one right now, just want to go over it real fast.


We are now 38 weeks along!
Little miss weighs around 6.8 lbs, and is around 19.75 in long, (guess we'll know how accurate that is pretty soon).
I have gained a total of 27lbs.
I'm still wearing a mixture of clothes.
We of course are having a girl!
I've been feeling icky more often lately, and tired.
The contractions come and go as always.
I love spicy chicken sandwiches from Wendy's lately.
I dislike everything at some point.
I can't believe we've made it this far.
It's a great blessing to have held her in so long and even past the full term 37 w mark. She's going to be a March baby. Wow.

Wordless Wednesday

Any day now...

Any day now I will become a mom...

Skyler will become a dad...
and of course Scout a big puppy brother :)
(cheesy and strange I know, but I definitely love the little guy)

Yesterday I stayed busy, Skyler & I rearranged our living room, went shopping for new furniture and just cleaned. It was able to get some contractions going last night, and even a few so far today, I'm hoping once my lazy butt gets up and starts getting ready for the day and goes out shopping again that they'll pick up. I can't wait to see my little girl. To put bows on her head, put her in cute little dresses and adorable outfits. To have her blessed, and sealed to our family.To be able to kiss and hold her little hands and feet :) I can't wait. Every day I feel more prepared for her, every day she's putting on more weight and she's protected inside, getting stronger.

Oh and if you haven't noticed I am now on twitter, check over to the left. I try and leave some info here and there. So if you don't hear from me for a while sometimes just look over there and see what's going on :)

37 W Appt

I finally made it a week without gaining a pound. It was nice. I'm still at my 25lb mark. Hopefully I'll stay there. I waited for half an hour yesterday to get seen, blood pressure, urine, weight, heart beat, measurements, all good. Cervix still at a 1 but more thinned. So we walked around the mall, a little, I went to Lowes for 3 hours with my family, ate a spicy smothered burrito, scrubbed the kitchen floor, walked downstairs a few times, played table soccer (cause I can't think of how to spell that), ate some spicy chicken, and only a few contractions all day. It's funny how before she wanted out, she kept pushing her luck and now she doesn't seem to care. I'm so glad she has made it full term but I'm extremely anxious and excited to meet her. Let's hope she comes soon :)

37 Weeks! FULL TERM!!!

How far along? 37 Weeks--Full Term!!!

Baby's size and stats? Our baby is now considered "full term," even though my due date is three weeks away. If I would go into labor now, her lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. Info taken from pregnancy.com

Gain? Still a total of 25lbs, but I'll find out tomorrow at my appt what damage this week has done.

Maternity clothes?Been wearing the maternity pants A LOT this week, but I've also been wearing more dresses

Sleep? Sleep has been a pain. It takes so much to move over and the pain is ridiculous!!

Foods I am loving? Spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy's... umm... cup of noodles!

Foods I am hating? Still greasy stuff, and meat

Best moment this week? Knowing we made it to 37 weeks! Also knowing that I was 1 cm and 50%!

Movement? Yup, she's a busy body, though the last couple days she's slowed down with her moving.

Symptoms/Emotions?
1. Excited!! She can come anytime now!!
2. Relief knowing that she is full term.
3. Anxious as to when she'll come
4. Contractions

Gender? A GIRL!!!

What I'm looking forward to? Her being here!!

Milestones: Being full term & officially stopping the terbutaline!!
