37 week bumpdate - FULL TERM!


How far along? 37 weeks - 20 days to go or 3 weeks! She could come anytime!
How big is the baby? Kendall is the size of SWISS CHARD (what is that??)
Approx 19.25" long & 6.3lbs
* YAY baby is FULL TERM
* All her organs should be fully developed and prepared for the outside world
Weight Gain/Loss: I had an appt on 10.8.12 and I hadn't gained any weight.  My next dr appt is Monday Oct 15, 12 so we'll see.  So far I've gained 28lbs
Maternity clothes? Now that the weather is getting colder, I'm wearing my one and only yoga pants that fit and I've been wearing Jason's shirts cause they are kinda the only thing that fits...yes I say kinda cause they are a little tight.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: sleep has been ok.  I usually fall asleep on my left side for a short time before my hip starts to hurt.  I will usually find myself laying on my back when I wake up around 2am to use the bathroom.  There are some nights I wake up with this horrible pain that feels like a really bad side ache.  I'm guessing I get that cause I've held my pee for to long and need to go cause as soon as I use the restroom is goes away.  Overall sleep has been ok, cant really complain to much.  I am still taking a nap everyday when the girls nap.
Best moment this week: hearing that I was 1cm dilated.  I know you can be like that for weeks but I have a feeling this little girl will be coming sooner than we think.
Miss Anything? I could go on and on with all the things that I miss.
Movement: man this little girl has been kicking my butt this week.  Her movements are big and strong and hurt.  On Thursday she did a really big kick up into my rib/liver area that hurt so bad and almost made me get sick.  She has been rolling a lot and pocking body parts out near my hips which also hurt pretty bad.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I wake up feeling queasy and pretty much go the whole day feeling that way.  It actually really sucks!  I've been forcing myself to eat something through out the day cause I just don't feel like eating.  I do feel a little better after eating something.


Labor Signs: this week has been a rough week for me.  Since finding out on Monday that I was 1cm dilated I've been laying low not doing a whole lot cause I need to keep this kid in until Monday Oct 15th when Jason's parents return from FL.  Any time I get up to do anything I get back to back to back BH mixed with real contractions, an increase in discharge, lots of pressure and feeling very queasy.  I am so glad that I'm not going through all this alone, I've gotten to know Carey through the blog and instagram world and we are due just days shy of eachother and we're actually going through the same symptoms at the same time.  It's been really nice to have someone to share this with.  Thanks Carey for being such a great support system.  Cant wait to see which one of us goes into labor first or if we go at the same time.
Symptoms:  EXHAUSTED
Belly Button in or out? In the middle (its not really in but its not out)
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: anxious, excited, nervous, moody, tired and just ready!
Looking forward to: meeting this sweet girl!  After we hit the 15th this sweet girl can come anytime and we will be ready.  I cant wait to see the girls interact with her and just try to get into a family of 5 routine.  I cant wait to celebrate all the holidays coming up with my little family!
How the siblings are doing: Now that the sickness is over they are doing great.  They have there days where they fight but this past week I think they know that things will be changing and they have been pretty good and have been playing nice.  Kaylee is excited for the baby to come and keeps asking when she'll be here.  She said she cant wait to push her in her baby swing.  Keira has been really really snuggly and wants all of my attention, so I'm curious to see how she'll be once the baby comes.
