FULL TERM! 37 weeks


How far along?
37 weeks! Holy moly – baby girl is officially full term! 

Maternity clothes?
Yes, and hardly fitting into my shirts anymore! I seriously think about 5 of my tops still fit me comfortably. 

Sleep:
What is sleep? ;) It’s still hit or miss. Some nights, I only get up once to pee. Other nights, I get up 4. This is not an exaggeration. Also, I can’t wait until my sleep is interrupted with baby cries instead of a burning pelvis and achey lower back. Being awake will be so much better with our little girl in my arms. 

Best moment this week:
Hearing Marleigh’s strong heartbeat at the doctor this past Tuesday, and the doctor telling me she’s measuring “perfectly.” (Take that, co-worker who told me I look like I’m having a biiig baby)! Also, getting together for dinner with one of my very best friends who lives way too far away while she was up visiting from Florida.

Miss Anything?
I miss being able to get in and out of bed easily, sleeping on my back/stomach, my wedding rings, and being able to give my husband nice big hugs without my belly getting in the way! 

Movement:
This little lady sure does like to wiggle! I have a feeling she’s going to be a busy little thing – just like her daddy! 

Food cravings:
Nothing really. 

Anything making you queasy or sick:
No. 

Gender:
Girl!

Labor Signs:
Some cramping and a TON of pain and pressure in my pelvic area.

Symptoms:
You name it, I’m probably experiencing it! Especially the swelling. My feet and "ankles" are really ridiculous. And painful. And I can't wait until they go back to their normal size.

Belly Button in or out?
I really don’t think I’ll ever be able to explain the status of my bellybutton these days. 

Wedding rings on or off?
Off :[ 

Happy or Moody most of the time:
My happiness is starting to change to moodiness due to being so uncomfortable, but I’m trying to resist it as much as possible and enjoy the final days of this journey! I know I'm going to miss having Marleigh in my belly with me, but right now, I'm really ready for her to come out!

Looking forward to:
Does this question even really need to be asked?! Meeting our baby! I seriously cannot wait to have her on our side of the world!
