37 weeks. (FULL TERM!)

Friday, March 11, 2011

My high school bestie and college roommate, Kallie, took some belly/maternity pictures of the BD and I on Sunday. We had fun, and I can't wait to see the rest. Here's a sneak peek:

How far along? 37 weeks, 3 days.

Total Weight Gain: No idea. Somewhere around 25 lbs. I refused to look when I was weighed this morning.

Belly button: Innie. It's not gonna pop.

Stretch marks: They feel pretty gross. And look pretty gross. They had better go away after the baby, or I will constantly remind her of the beating my skin took for her everyday for the rest of her life.

Maternity clothes: Nothing is comfortable. I like loose clothing. I want to wear my normal clothes, and feel comfortable. I don't remember what that feels like.

Gender: GIRL.

Movement: She has pretty much stopped moving. I don't think she has any room left to do anything. When she moves now, it takes me by surprise. It's pretty much just after I eat, and before I go to bed.

Symptoms: My hips, lower back, and pelvis hurt constantly. It feels like everything is being ripped apart. Climbing stairs, putting on shoes and socks, and stepping into a pair of pants are all painful.

Food aversions: Nothing that I'm strongly against. I prefer to go with lighter foods rather than the heavier meat and potatoes way.

Food cravings: Yummy things. :) Lots of yogurt, fruit, cereal, orange juice. Seems like breakfast foods. Speaking of which, I want pancakes. I decided it would be a good idea to give up pop, junk food, and candy for lent. It's going well so far, and hopefully I can keep it up.

What I miss: Drinking. St. Patrick's Day is coming up on Thursday, and I REALLY wish I could have some green beer.

What I am looking forward to: We FINALLY got a date for move-in. NEXT Thursday or Friday... as they always seem to tell us. But this time we got it in writing! yay! I'm excited to move in.

Milestones: At my doctor's appointment on Friday, March 4th, I was 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. I spent the week mostly on my feet... cleaning, walking, cooking, squatting... trying to move things along. Today at my appointment, I was still 2 cm dilated, but 80% effaced!!! My guess is that she'll be here before next weekend. I HOPE. Even though we don't move into our apartment until the end of the week, but I wouldn't mind if she decided to come before then... like TODAY :) BD would rather she wait.

Names we're thinking recently:
Probably Rowan, Clara, or Zoey. I've recently liked Vera or Veda.
