Full Term! 37 weeks!


How far along? 37 weeks and 2 days!
Maternity clothes? mostly :)
Stretch marks? still a lucky girl in this dept, but the last few weeks of pregnancy can be a bugger! Keeping my fingers crossed
Sleep: some nights are better than others...getting up a lot!
Best moment this week: I got a low census day (day off work because there weren't that many patients) and I got all of NJ's laundry done and her diaper bag packed. Also ran all of my last minute errands
Movement: she's a kicker
Food cravings: starting to run out of room for food!
Gender: girl!
Labor Signs: Contractions are continuing and I'm officially 2cm and 75% effaced, -1 station.
Belly Button in or out? neither, it's flat
What I miss: I get winded just standing around sometimes, it's the weirdest thing! I was drawing a kid's blood the other day and all of a sudden I was out of breath and feeling exhausted! I can't wait to not be so wiped out and tired.
What I am looking forward to: dressing NJ in her cute clothes!
Milestones: Well I'm not sure if this is a milestone but we did have a scare this week, but everything is ok! I was walking around a bright red icee spilled on the ground at Target and I slipped on some water spilled on the ground on the other side of the walkway. RIGHT BY THE BABY STUFF! I fell on my belly and couldn't catch myself because my hands were full. It scared me more than it hurt me, I went to LD for monitoring and was having regular contractions (!) but they were not changing my cervix and NJ's heartbeat looked fine, great actually, so they let me go home! Thank goodness! Thanks everyone for all of their prayers :)

Trista... so glad you're okay. I remember being afraid of falling, and I'm sorry this happened to you. Sounds like everything else is going great! So pumped for you guys. Hang in there.
Love,
Bethany
