How far along?: 37 weeks
How big is baby?:Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard).
Weight gain?: I did not go up in weight this week, I am still holding strong at 26 pounds.
Stretch marks?: Not yet. Lathering up the lotion. There have been a few blood vessels that have popped and my belly button is an outie now.
Maternity clothes?: Sundresses are a life-saver!
Food cravings?: Anything cold. I love love love a cold glass of water... the more ice, the better.
Sleep?: I toss and turn all night long. A solid 4 hours is all I am asking for these days.
Gender?: Boy... boy... boy
Exercise?: This week has been off and on. The weather outside has been unbelievably hot which makes it really hard to breathe. I have been working on a few exercises to ease labour. I will share some of them with you this coming week.
What's been going on?: This week has been a busy one again, the hubby was out of town for a second week in a row which means it was just the little one and I. I love spending quality time with my daughter but I do love having a few minutes to myself. I miss the hubby being home for bath and bed time. This week I have been extremely tired again. I feel huge, I am getting to the point in pregnancy where I just want my son to come into this world. I met with my ob/gyn this week. Everything is on track and looking good. Baby boy is still head down, and heartbeat is still strong. I think the hospital bag is ready to go, only a few more items to add. I have started to kick count, as this little one seems to be lazy. It takes a while for him to finally give in and give me a little something.
