How big is baby??

Weeks 37-Delivery (Month 9): Watermelon

Average size: 18.9-20.9 inches, 6.2-9.2 lb.

Full term! Baby's finally ready for the outside world...

Your Baby: Month 9

At week 37, your pregnancy is considered full term, meaning baby is likely to thrive after birth. Baby spends these last weeks in preparation for the outside world… meaning careful refinement of the blink, suck, inhale and exhale. Meconium, which you’ll probably find in the first diaper, is accumulating in the intestines. If (okay, as) you worry about giving birth, consider what it’s like for the little one. During the journey out of your womb, baby will produce more stress hormones than any other time in life.

My Pregnancy so far...

How far along: 37w3d (didn’t get to post this on Friday)
Total weight gain/loss: Same, didn’t gain this week. Woo Hoo! I’m sure I won’t be able to celebrate this week, though. We ate too good over the weekend!

Maternity clothes: Same

Stretch marks: One, but it’s above the belly?!!? Hmm! Been coco-buttering the belly several times a day!

Sleep: I guess I slept pretty good over the weekend! Friday I got about 7 hours, Saturday I got around 8 hours, but then Hubbs and I took over a 3 hour nap on Sunday. It was much needed!!! Felt great too. And woke up just in time to watch the Rangers beat Seattle!! We swept em’ this series. Yay!

Best moment this week: Sonogram, getting to hear Mason’s heart rate.

Movement: Oh yeah! Saturday within the span of a few hours Mason flopped from my right side to my left side over 6 times!!! It was crazy feeling/watching him!! He really knows how to push that little butt out!!

Food cravings: Not really

Food aversions: Certain meats

Gender: Still a boy!

Labor Signs: Didn’t have many Braxton Hicks over the weekend. Yay!

Belly Button in or out: Flat, and sometimes sticks out a little. My sono tech said that Mason’s elbows get me right there at the belly button. So I guess when he elbows me it makes my belly button stick out. hahahahaha

What I miss: My ankles!!!!!!!!!!

What I am looking forward to: Sono/Dr appt this week (Thursday) and maternity pictures with the hubster!!!
