37 Weeks!

Weeks: 37 Weeks Pregnant

Size of Baby Girl: About 6 1/2 pounds and 19 inches long. 

Activity: She moves a lot by pushing. She is getting pretty cramped in there. I don't notice a lot of jabbing kicks just a lot of pushing pressure when she makes any movement (which is often!). 

Fun Moment This Last Week: I started putting headbands together for her this last week and found a new addiction. I love putting the headbands together and am even considering making and selling them as a stay at home mommy business. :) It is a ton of fun, at least for me!

Cravings: Sweet Tea. Chocolate. Nothing abnormal from usual. :)

Weight Gain: Last appointment on Thursday I had gained 43 pounds so far. It amazes me if I compare the activity levels between this pregnancy and when I was pregnant with Bryson and I am still gaining at the exact same rate. I've realized this pregnancy how I can watch what I eat and stay somewhat active and my body is going to do what it has to do when I'm pregnant. It's a hard pill to swallow when I know how much work I am going to have to put in to get back to pre-baby weight. 

My Activity Level: We still walk as much as possible. Fortunately the weather has been wonderful lately but it looks like the heat is about to arrive. Not looking forward to the swelling that could come with that!

Baby Girl Preparation This Week: Making her headbands was about as far as I got for baby girl this week. Well...I did pack her bag for the hospital with cute little outfits and her girly swaddle blankets. :) I really  need to work on a couple of projects in her room this week.

  1. You're looking great, Shelbey! You definitely do not LOOK like you've gained 43--and if you did, it looks like it is all belly weight! :o)

    1. Thanks Avery! :) I can't believe how fast the weight comes on in the third trimester. I gained a ton with Bryson but figured that with me being more active and watching what I ate better I would gain a lot less. Ha! At least the weight gain is more than worth it!
