37 Week Bumpdate

37-weeks

How Far Along: 37 Weeks (Tommy was cracking me up when this picture was taken!)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 18-19 pounds It seems to fluctuate

Gender: It’s a girl!

Movement: Today she was quite a mover, yesterday she was tired. I love to feel her move, though!

Sleep: I had a glorious night of sleep Saturday night. I slept until 9 on Sunday, which was just awesome. The rest is just “meh.”

Maternity Clothes: Basically, all maternity except for dresses and some tops.

Symptoms: Oh symptoms. Let’s see – at my doctor’s appointment on Thursday I was dilated to a 1+ and 50% effaced. I had a sharp pain in my side, which I asked the doctor if he thought it was a blood clot. (Have I mentioned that I have a flair for the dramatics?) When he asked if I was having contractions, I told him “no.” Then he asked me what I thought my blood clot was. Oooooh, so that is a contraction! I had no idea they weren’t all over. Clearly, I have NO clue what I am doing.

Yesterday I went to the hospital because I had some light bleeding (which ends up being totally normal when your cervix is thinning…wish I would have known that before they checked me again) and I was dilated to a 3 and 80% effaced. The nurse was really sweet, but told me she didn’t think there was any way this baby was going to make it until October. I am hoping she cooperates a little longer for me, but I am living with the motto of “there’s nothing I can do about it.”

Aversions: Still fried foods.

Cravings: I finally bit the bullet and made my puppy chow/muddy buddies. I have also been craving fruit and pizza.

Best Moment this week: Getting her bedding! I am just in love with it and am so glad her room is pretty much together!

Also, my husband has been so sweet and supportive. He has been helping me a ton so that I don’t overdo it and I am very appreciative of how sweet he has been. (Not that he usually isn’t, but he has really, really been helpful this past week!)

We are doing things much alike! I was in the hospital Saturday night and had similar results with my progress. These girls just can't wait to make the scene, which I am totally fine with:). Can't wait to hear the news that Emmy is here!

You and Tommy are just so sweet. Of course, I knew that Tommy would be such a sweet helper!! Both you and Allison are blessed with very sweet husbands!! Both of Karen's babies and Shannon's baby came ten days early . . . so get ready!!
Love, Aunt Angie
P.S. Janie is right that she and I need to be kept informed!
