37 weeks, 4 days = FULL TERM!

37weeks 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 23 pounds

Maternity Clothes: yes and and i have outgrown many of them

Gender: it’s a girl! Lucy Anne

Movement: she is still head down, yay for no flipping in the last week! She is still moving around a lot and loves to stretch her legs out to the side.

Sleep: is just painful!

What I miss: being about to move like a normal person LOL stand up, roll over, ect without the need of a crane … I am getting so excited to shop for fall clothes!

Cravings: nothing much at all this week

Best Moment this week: reaching 37 weeks and being full term, Lucy can pretty much come at any time now because all of her organs have developed and are ready for life outside the womb. I had my last growth ultrasound with my high risk doctor on Friday and Lucy was in the 55% and weighed 6lbs 5oz (and  is “right there” aka ready to come out)!! YAY!!!! It was bittersweet to have my last appointment there since the doctor I saw provided so much positive energy throughout this pregnancy, i will miss him! I had another great doctors appointment on Monday with my regular OBs(appointments have been great since i have only been going to the new doctor in the practice, love her!) I didn’t get checked this week so no updates on progress.

Alex was out of town last week and I got a lot of stuff done around the house plus a lot of projects finished for Lucy that I had started months ago. YAY, for baby girl stuff being done!

I feel like she has dropped a lot since last week, what do you think?

You look great! I wish I had only gained 20-something pounds with Shelby. Yep, looks like Lucy dropped a bit. Glad you're doing relatively well. The end is hard, but before you know it she'll be here. :-)
