37 Week Update!

How far along? 37 weeks - Full Term!

How big is baby?  6 1/3 pounds/19+ inches!  About the length of Swiss Chard.
 Weight gain? 37?lbs I'm not sure that this is right . . . . . 

Symptoms? Exhaustion!  Still some swelling.  Holy heartburn, really really bad regardless of what I eat!

Sleep?  Ok.  Definitely getting worse.  Up to use the bathroom at least 2x/night.

Food cravings? Still love ice (so weird) and popsicles/freeze-pops.  Has anyone tried the Strawberry Lemonade from McDonald's?!?!  Yum!

Movement? Still lots.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? Friday is my last day of work!

What am I missing? Somedays, just the sense of feeling 'normal'.

Milestones?  Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.

Other?  We made about 9 different meals for the freezer, plus some meatballs this weekend!  We are stocked up for when baby arrives!
