{37 weeks}

How Far Along: 37 weeks

Size of Baby: Swiss Chard or Winter Melon {almost 6.5lbs & a bit over 19" long }

Exercise: 4x - again with the walking and keeping busy on days I don't necessarily go to the gym. It's getting easy to want to sit around more throughout the day, but I'm trying to keep moving :)

Maternity Clothes: Anything cotton {sweatpants, t-shirts, etc} I'm still squeezing into. Anything nice {jeans, clothes for church, etc} are pretty much all maternity. With that being said, the shirt in the picture is not maternity {it's been one of my favorites and borrowed from my SIL, Kasie. Thanks Kasie!!}

Gender: little man

Movement: It's getting crammed in there. I feel a head or butt roll over the top of my stomach every couple of minutes :) 

Sleep: Not bad at all! I thought I'd be getting up to use the bathroom a lot more than I am....must be the way I'm laying on my side. I tend to get really thirsty at night, so some nights I am up a lot, but still doesn't seem to abnormal....for me anyways!

What I miss: The whole getting socks on and tying my shoe laces is getting tricky ;0) 

Cravings: Mint & chocolate. The sweetness of the chocolate and the freshness of the mint is perfect! Isn't that always perfect though??

Best Moment of the Week: His monogram is painted and ready to put up {we had company over so it couldn't go up quite yet ;0)}

Right now Baby H is practicing inhaling & exhaling amniotic fluid, sucking his thumb, blinking, and turning from side to side -- all things that will help him thrive once he is born! He's also still packing on the pounds!

My body is getting ready to deliver. At least I hope it is! We're still 3 weeks out, but I'd be happy to meet him any day. Having said that....I'm sure I'll be delivering 2 weeks after my due date 0:-) The nursery is absolutely done and ready to go, minus hanging the monogram. I feel like we need more little clothes, but am holding off -- if he's randomly 9 lbs he won't fit into anything newborn! He and I can always do some shopping after he arrives :) I'm sure every new Mom thinks their baby needs more clothes. HAHA

AND.....I found this BabyHunch website on another blog and am shamelessly stealing it. I thought it was so neat and a fun way to have a baby pool without having to keep track of the information myself.  There may be a prize to the winner......
