37 Weeks: Full Term

Please excuse my red face! The lighting in our room is a little funky. 

How far along: 37 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 36 lbs.
Maternity clothes: I have maybe 6 shirts that still fit me. I'm about to switch to Stafford's shirts for pj's- Mine are barely covering my stomach.
Sleep: I'm getting less and less. I'll wake up at 8 and I can't go back to sleep because I'm too hungry or uncomfortable! If I would just go to bed earlier it wouldn't be a problem, but I'm hungry at night too! See the problem I'm facing??  
Best moment this week: I think we decided on a name!! I have really struggled with naming this sweet girl. Stafford and I have gone through a million names and nothing seemed to stick. She's basically had 8 names this pregnancy. Hopefully this one stays with her since she will be making her debut in 3 short weeks!
Worst moment this week: I'm just so ready to have this baby! I'm having a few more cramps and moments of exhaustion, which hopefully means my body is getting ready.
Miss anything: I miss having a normal appetite, and being able to maneuver myself in and out of bed easily. It is quite the ordeal.
Movement: She's slowing down and her movements have gotten to be more flowy instead of jabs. I can tell she's getting a little more cramped in there.
Cravings: Still loving desserts of every kind. Oh and I had a different breakfast food for every meal the other day.. haha.
Queasy or sick: I've been ok this week. Hopefully the next few weeks go by without anything changing.
Looking forward to: Get My doctor appointment this week! I love doctor appointments, because my normal every day does not revolve around baby girl. My appointments however are all about my body and baby girl. I love talking about her growth, when she's coming, and how my body is progressing.

I've made some progress around the house and getting ready for baby girl to come. Their room is slowly coming together and I've packed McKinlee's bag incase I go into labor before my mom is here and we need to take her to our friends' house. I also typed out her schedule to go in her bag and for when my mom is here. I think it's nice to have all the little details written down and ready to go. My list for this week consists of packing a hospital bag for me/Stafford/baby. I think I overpacked last time, so I'm anxious to see what I whittle the list down to this time- AND to see if it all fits in one bag. Yay!! I can't believe it's coming!


  1. Oh you are just the cutest EVER! I can't believe you haven't switched to Stafford's clothes yet, ha! I've was wearing Eric's before I got pregnant and now it's a chore to put my own on ;) I hope baby girl gets here soon! Can't wait to see her sweet face!
