37 Weeks!

I've officially made it to the safe zone! I gave Nugget the eviction notice. I'm really hoping he/she listens and makes an appearance soon!

DATE:
July 18, 2011

How far along:
37 Weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
9 lbs total, and that's making up what I lost.

How big is baby? Nugget weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel. (I'm guessing Nugget is already bigger than that!)

How baby is growing: If Nugget is born now, his/her lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: I never wore maternity clothes. I actually just gave a bag of them away, because they were never used. Regular pants and regular long shirts still fit perfectly.

Sleep: Sleep? What's that? I spend the majority of the night trying to find a comfortable position.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Getting Lexie and Nugget's room set up. We are completely ready for Nugget to arrive!

Movement: Nugget is still very active! He/She usually gets strong hiccups twice a day: once in the morning, and once in the evening. Nugget squirms and attempts to stretch a lot more. Those movements are really uncomfortable! The hands/feet/arms/legs that stick out of my belly are very strong!

Food Cravings: I haven't had any cravings. I eat a lot of fruit, salad, cereal, and sweets!

Food Aversions:
Lunch/Dinner food.

Morning Sickness:
I'm still taking Zofran everyday, and it's especially bad at night. I really can't wait for the morning sickness to go away. (21 days or less...phew! That first meal is going to be wonderful!)

Gender:
It's a surprise!

Symptoms:
The contractions and pressure are making me very uncomfortable right now. I constantly feel as if I could go into labor at any moment. Morning sickness and constipation are a part of my everyday life. I'm nesting like a crazy lady, and I have no patience whatsoever! I feel like I'm a hormonal, uncomfortable mess right now!

Exercise: I walk 4-5 days a week. As of today, all restrictions are lifted!

What I miss:
Feeling comfortable and nausea-free!

What I'm looking forward to:
My appointment tomorrow morning. I really hope there are some changes! These contractions are going to exhaust me, just as they did with Lexie!
