Week 37

How far along: 37 weeks (last full week of pregnancy!) We’re getting induced on Wednesday morning (week 38 day) May 6th.

Genders: Boy & Girl!!

Weight gain: +0 pounds (32 lbs so far)

New symptoms: I’ve been getting some sharp pains in my breasts, guessing that’s the milk coming in. Overall I’m just feeling uncomfortable and am ready for them to be here! My pelvis is so sore, mostly pelvic girdle pain from baby boy’s head sitting right there plus 13 pounds of baby weight applying pressure, and walking is difficult but sitting on the exercise ball helps with this.

Queasy or sick: Just reflux at night time which if it’s still going on when I wake up I’ll feel nauseous. This did cause me to throw up once earlier this week. I keep a stash of Tums close by!

Cravings: Back to salty things, mostly cheese and fried pickles – yum!

Aversions: Nothing new

Sleep: Getting anxious about their arrival so it takes me a while to shut my mind off after I get back in bed from the bathroom. Still getting about 7-8 hours a night though!

Maternity clothes: Comfy, loose items. Mostly leggings, a tank top, and sweatshirt.

Stretch marks: just the ones around my belly button. I’m applying either the oil or lotion twice a day.

Belly button in or out: still in but very shallow

Miss anything: being able to walk or go up/down the stairs without being so short of breath and achy

Movement: Mostly rolls from both of them and hiccups. They’re still head down and now they’re facing each other so most of the rolls are across the middle of my belly. It’s fun to watch and feel! I can’t believe that they won’t be in there anymore soon. 😦
