37 Weeks

 I'm technically full term with this pregnancy! 
He can come whenever he wants :)
I'd prefer him to come a week early.
My sister Kelsi starts BYU on Aug. 27 (my due date) and obviously needs to drive out there and move in...so I'd like her to meet him before she heads out! Also, my brother starts CU in Boulder on my due date as well!
Guess it is all up to Baby R!
37 weeks, 3 days pregnant.
Top: Old Navy Maternity
Shorts: Gap Maternity
Watch: Charming Charlie
Bracelets: White House Black Market

How Far Along: 37 weeks, 4 days. 3rd trimester! As of today there are 17 days until the due date!
Size of the Baby: Watermelon, 6.5 lbs, 19-22 inches long!
Maternity Clothes: Love them except I'm getting kind of tired of wearing the same things haha. But definitely better than regular clothes.
Stretch marks: Just a few on each side of my hip! I'd like no more haha.

Weight gain/loss: 29 lbs. I lost a pound since last week as I was at 30 lbs. It isn't a bad thing to lose a pound, in case you were wondering. The obgyn said it is common to lose some weight at the end of a pregnancy as you get closer to delivery. I'm still eating and working out the same!
Sleep: I'm pregnant and you can't sleep how you used to. Can't complain right now.
Best Moment of the Week: On a non-baby related note, it was Kevin and I's 4th anniversary this week! I LOVE HIM!
Movement: Definitely still moving and hitting many nerves very often with his head (and maybe hands?) near my cervix. It feels like someone is stabbing you with knives haha! Not the best but hey, he is moving and is healthy so I can't complain. My obgyn said she thinks he has dropped because of that and also I'm measuring at 36 weeks instead of 37 weeks (which is common when they 'drop').
Symptoms: Just back pain here and there. I don't like to sit for very long. That seems to make it worse!
Food Cravings: Peaches! Kevin and I went to get fresh peaches from this farmer who sells amazing produce and they are SO good!!! We ate them so fast. Oh, and we got nectarines too.
Gender: BOY!
Belly Button in or out: It is still in but is kind of coming out? Maybe it is more of a 'flattie'? I have no clue. It definitely isn't sticking out like some peoples.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Labor Signs: Nope!
Wedding ring on or off: Off because I am paranoid...
What I miss: Exercising harder and being active and doing everything I want! Also, weighing less haha.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our man.
Nursery: Coming together! I am putting his clothes in the dresser today and organizing his stuff in our room. I am also going to get a few more things from Babies 'r' Us so hopefully after this weekend we will have everything we need!!!
Emotions: Good!
Stupid things I have done: Nothing I can think of.

* Our 37 week appointment went well! I lost a pound so I've gained 29 total now. She thinks he has dropped as I am measuring at 36 weeks and his head is very low. His heartbeat is healthy at 138 beats/minute. I had her guess what his weight is and she is guessing he will weigh 7 lbs 4 oz when I deliver him. She felt my stomach and him in there and guessed from that. She checked my cervix and I am 50% effaced and not dilated at all haha. I hope he doesn't stay in too long after his due date... And only downside is that I have Group B Strep. It isn't a bad thing as she said 1/3 woman have it. It is pretty common. I just have to go straight in if I think my water has broke so they can start me on antibiotics. As long as I have the antibiotics during delivery our boy should be fine.

*Also, Katinka is a fan of our son's room. Sometimes I don't know where she is and I'll find her sitting on the rocking chair in his room! I hope she will be good friends with him and not be jealous haha. We shall see!
Have a good weekend!
