37 Weeks

June 19, 2009 Sarah Coggins

How far along? 37 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Up 3lbs – effect of my sudden increase in appetite last week?

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Stretch marks? Yes. But I don’t think I’ve gained any new ones from last week. Although, I’m not exactly counting so who knows.

Sleep: Really well. I only wake up once or twice and often can just switch sides and fall back asleep. My only complaint is that no matter how well I sleep, I’m almost always tired during the day now. Too bad I can’t squeeze in a daily nap.

Best moment this week: Hearing the little guy’s heartbeat at our weekly checkup.

Movement: Lots of stretching and pushing on me still. My belly takes on the funniest lop-sided shapes. And, the baby gets the hiccups about once a day – bouncing my belly the entire time. Trent & I jokingly called him “Tigger” at these times since it looks as though my belly is going “boing…boing…boing…”

Food cravings: None. But still enjoying that hearty appetite I acquired last week. Wonder if that means I’ll see another 3lbs added to the scale next week. Hmm…

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? Pretty close to flat. Trent has teased me that when it pops, the baby is done cooking. 😉

What I am looking forward to: Our last childbirth class tomorrow and just enjoying a little R&R this weekend.

Milestones: We picked out a pediatrician. One more item scratched off the to-do list.

Energy Level: Slowing down …

    You are getting so close! :) Good luck picking a name. I'm sure once you and Trent look at him one will come to you right away.

    Oh, I remember the hiccups! lol My doctor said that meant our daughter would probably have them after she was born, too, and she did! Love these updates, Sarah!

    The baby hiccups are tons of fun to watch and feel! LOL! Not long to go have had a super pregnancy!
