Well, I’m officially full term! At 37 weeks pregnant, baby can arrive any time between now and the next few weeks.
How far along are you? 37 weeks pregnant! I’m 9 months pregnant and officially full-term.
Symptoms? Everything. Insomnia, nighttime reflux, and a sudden energy burst the last few days (nesting).
Cravings? No. Cold stuff since it’s so hot right now!
Exercise? Sebastian and I read this Goodnight Yoga book every night (which he absolutely LOVES). That’s about all I’m getting!
Weight gain/loss: No change in the last few weeks; I’m up 24 pounds. My weight gain tends to plateau at the end.
Belly button? It’s kinda flat at this point.
Baby is the size of: My app says average is as long as a stalk of Swiss chard (around 19 inches) and about 6.5 pounds. But our ultrasound last week estimated she’s a bit on the small side at around 5.5 pounds, 16th percentile. Dr. says we are both just petite so nothing to stress about, I just carry small. My hubby on the other hand has started offering me milkshakes, hah.
Sleep?: My toddler has decided he wants to sleep in bed with us every night. And since I need 3,000 pillows to even try to get comfortable, we’re overcrowded. And I have to pee all the time. So yeah, sleep sucks.
Labor signs: Still a lot of Braxton Hicks. I declined my cervical check last week, just figured it was an unnecessary poke I don’t really need since regardless baby will come when she wants to come. I may change my mind as we get closer to due date.
Wedding rings: Off
Movement: She’s also taken to assaulting me every night and it’s actually painful. Right around 10pm the dance party begins and it feels like she is literally going to FALL out. Takes my breath away and lasts for quite awhile, so I don’t usually even try to sleep until the dance party ends. That and the lovely nerve pinch/lightning crotch. Ugh.
For those that have asked, this is the cream I use and recommend.

months weeks from losing my mind to a chaotic house with two little ones!
