Eating for Two: Week 37

37 Weeks PregnantHow far along: 37 weeks!!

Total weight gain/loss: Looks like I’m about 151 this week, so 33 pounds gained total.

Maternity clothes? I’m pretty resigned to the fact that I will be wearing the same 5 outfits to work every week until baby is born at this point.

Stretch marks? None as of yet, but I know there is still time.

Sleep: Sleep is still coming pretty well to me. When I wake up in the morning, though, my hands are like balloons. Okay…not quite balloons…but either way…quite puffy and achy.

Miss anything? Regular bowl movements? Is that TMI???? Ohhhhh welllllll!! We’re all friends here, right? I won’t go into too much detail, haha, but I’m not sure if it’s the iron supplement I’ve been taking or if it’s just the fact that I’m super pregnant, but either way, I’m looking forward to the return of regularity.

Movement: This little lady is going to be an athlete of some sort as she is always up to something.

Food cravings:  Chocolate. Milk.

Food aversions: Nope!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. Still “hiccurping” like a champion, though.

Best moment this week: Johnny and I got some maternity photos taken over the weekend and I juuuuust adore them!!! We brought Quincy with us and I’m pretty sure he was the star of the show, but I’m cool with it. I’ll share some with you soon!! I promised nursery photos first, which I will be sharing with you at the end of this post!!

Labor signs: Definitely a few more Braxton Hicks contractions. Nothing unusual otherwise.

Symptoms: My feet and ankles are quite puffy these days. I’m pretty much living in flip flops because I can slip them off at my desk. My hands are getting pretty puffy, too. And my joints – specifically my knuckles, wrists, and knees – are all kind of achy. Particularly right when I wake up in the morning. Oh bah. It’s irritating, but I know I could be much worse off, so I try to be thankful things aren’t worse than they are. 🙂

Belly Button in or out? In, but it’s definitely stretching to maximum capacity. (FYI: Biggest regret ever was getting my belly button pierced. I had it done when I was 16ish I think, and took it out when I was 21ish. The scar almost looks like a second belly button now annnnnnnnnnd I hate it.)

Wedding rings on or off? I’ve been taking them off to sleep lately because my hands are so puffy when I wake up that the rings are a little uncomfortable. After I shower though they fit back on. 🙂

Happy or Moody most of the time: It’s been a good week for me, but I still think it’s safe to say I’m moody lol.

Looking forward to: The long weekend…which also happens to be my BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!!! My birthday is on Monday. YAY!!! I’m 26 on the 26th this year AND it’s my last baby-free birthday. I’m looking forward to it being pretty low key this year and just spending the day with the hubs…perhaps with some Thai Food and Carrot Cake…as they are two of my most favorite things.

And now, as promised, some photos of the nursery!!!! I’m still working on getting storage for the cloth diapers on the changing table. And I will be removing the stuffed animals once baby girl arrives. I just don’t have a place for them all yet!!
