37 Weeks—Full Term!

How far along? 37 weeks

Due Date: Doctor is wanting to induce at 38 weeks. I'll find out for sure tomorrow at my doctors appointment. 

Total weight gain/loss: Can I skip over this question???  Blah! +37 lbs And yes, that means I gained 3 pounds in one week. WHAT!? Although if you where to look at my feet and legs you would see where that weight is...it's water weight. Oh fun!

Maternity clothes? Of yes, but I did get a few non-maternity sweater shirts the other day to wear over my maternity tops that are getting snug.

Stretch Marks? Nope!

Sleep: Pretty good, considering.

Best moment this week: I am officially typing to you from my basement office! :o) Plus, I managed to get a lot of other things crossed off of my to-do list!

Movement: Oh yes!

Food cravings: Nothing specific.

Food aversions: None.
Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: Nothing serious yet.

Belly Button in or out? Still in.

What I miss: I would really really love to be able to lay on my stomach!

What I am looking forward to: Meeting our little guy!
Milestones: I am officially full term! :o) 
At about six and a half pounds (though weight and height vary from fetus to fetus), your baby is doing just fine. You can expect weight gain to be about half an ounce per day. (Boys, though, are likely to be heavier at birth than girls.) Your baby is simulating breathing by inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid, sucking on his or her thumb, blinking, and pivoting from side to side.
