Pregnancy Update: 37 Weeks
How many weeks are you now?
37 Weeks 6 Days - I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow....which means I'm just TWO weeks away from my due date!
Winter Melon per the What to Expect app. (what's that??)
I gained two pounds this week.
Again, still no ankle/hand swelling or stretch marks so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
Total Weight gain: 30.5 pounds overall
So far so good in the blood pressure department...it's still on the low end and I hope it stays there! On and off throughout the last few weeks, I've had Braxton Hicks and cramping. This week, though I woke up a couple of nights with those same sensations, only stronger. After drinking a lot of water and turning on my left side, they stopped. I so hoped that meant something was going on but after being checked yesterday, everything is still closed up tight. Oh well...
I have no induction date at this point because I would like to see if my body will go into labor on its own. My OB is fine with that, as long as all is well with baby and my BP remains stable. Sooo, we'll see what happens!
The pregnancy brain is still at its finest. My brain can only handle one or two pieces of information at a time...and nine times out of ten, I'm more than likely to forget those, too. Checklists are my best friend and can be found in random places - the kitchen counter, the fridge, my pockets, my purse, etc.
Another symptom that popped up this week is itching! I've been generous with the lotion/body butter for sure!
With Spring in full force (aka Southwest Louisiana = HOT), I started craving all things cold and icy! Yesterday, I made a strawberry banana green smoothie that was oh so delicious!
Oh yes, and Cadbury eggs because...Easter. No other reason. :) Then again, does one need a reason to enjoy Cadbury eggs?
Sounding like a broken record here....still fish! Even the non fishy smelling fish started to bother me again.
I had two episodes of sleeplessness this week. I've figured out if I go to sleep too early, I wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back asleep. However, if I wait just an hour or so later, I'm able to sleep without any problems. It's working so far...so good!
A few postpartum clothing items (just waiting on them to arrive so they can be washed and placed in the hospital bag). Also, I purchased another set of sheets for the baby bed.
What I Miss:
Bending over to pick something up with hurting myself.
What I'm looking forward to:
Spending our last few weekends together with Jason before baby arrives. I'll tell you, though...the last few weeks have gone by so SLOOOOOOOOW...I feel like 2 weeks is so close yet so far away with how long the days seem to drag on by here lately!
Thanks for following along! Have a marvelous weekend!
Do you have any weekend plans? If so, I'd love to hear them!
