My Belly {37 weeks}

Nugget this week...
*is full term! 
*is practicing inhaling, exhaling, sucking, gripping & blinking
*is getting ready for that first (meconium) poop

Size of the baby?  
If baby is growing an ounce a day like she's supposed to she should be 6 pounds 3 ounces right now.

Total Weight Gain/Loss?  
29.6 pounds....I think my hopes of staying under 30 are long gone.

Maternity Clothes?  
3 weeks to go and still wearing only one pair of maternity jeans. I made it through the summer in cotton dresses and now that the weather is cool and I'm so close to being NOT-pregnant I just cannot bring myself to spend money on maternity clothes.

Stretch marks?  
Happy to report NO!

Best Moments?  
Finishing the nursery and completing the baby to-do list!

Movement? 
Still getting a butt in my ribs and a foot in my side but her movement has slowed down a lot, I can tell she's running out of wiggle room in there.

Food Cravings?  
No real cravings, in fact I have no appetite at all

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Still not loving meat.

What I miss?  
I miss being comfortable.

Nausea/Vomiting?  
I threw up quite a bit thanks to the damn flu but am feeling much better now.

Symptoms? 
Heartburn, Heartburn, Heartburn! YUCK!

Labor signs?  
I had my weekly appointment on Monday afternoon and was still only 1/2 cm dilated, which I'm OK with because unless something really crazy happens I should be able to make it through my brother's wedding without going in to labor.

Gender? 
BABY GIRL 

Belly Button In or Out?
It's popped, but still isn't a crazy outie.

Wedding rings On or Off?  
Rings are still on! Holler!

Sleep?
I think my nights of hard sleep are forever gone. I am having the worst time getting comfortable and rolling over is the biggest production. so. darn. tired.

What I'm looking forward to? 
My brother's wedding this weekend!

oofta, so close! a (former) friend's sister had her baby yesterday at 10 weeks early.. so it's good little nugget keeps cooking! It's going to be weird when she's finally here, and there are photos of a baby. I mean, I've never really followed a blog "pre-pregnangy" and been there for the WHOLE 9 months. crazy! Also, super interested to see what happens to that meat aversion post pregnancy! haha
