Around 37 weeks, many moms-to-be find themselves organizing cupboards and scrubbing their floors. That’s the nesting instinct kicking in as your body senses baby will be here shortly.
Total weight gain:
Yeah....8 lb weight gain in one week.. how awesome is that???
Yes and no...I wear what fits pretty much...
Belly button in or out?
I seriously thought it couldn't stick out anymore, but it continues to surprise me. And it hurts like hell.
Ugh... Sleep is so overrated. I'm over it.
Best moment this week:
Hmmm...That's a good question. It's been one hell of a week. I guess finding out that I'm progressing and that baby will be here sooner rather than later! *More on this to come*
Anything that goes in my mouth...
None at this point
Insomnia, lower back and hip pain (to the point where I can't walk in the morning), crazy dreams, hemorrhoids, and all the other usuals. Heartburn is back with a vengeance...even taking zantac twice a day--I'm still having to pop tums..boo.. but hopefully that means she has just as much or MORE hair then our Gabriel did. :-) She has hiccups all.the.time!!!! Also having contractions...
I feel every.single.movement. I seriously felt her breathing the other day. Her back is right up against my hip and lower left abdomen. I woke up and had my hand right there and I could feel it going up and down like breathing...I'm not crazy, promise.

What I'm looking forward to:
Being a family of 4, of course, BUT....I really want to not be pregnant anymore---I'm in the IM DONE phase.
What I miss:
Sleep, Energy, Fitting into clothes, Getting on the floor to play with Gabe...
